For the second straight week, the Baker Hughes U.S. rig count held at 1,931. Oil rigs were down nine to 1,592, gas rigs were up nine to 338 and miscellaneous rigs were unchanged at one. (Oddly, this is the exact same rig count from September 12.) By type, horizontal rigs were up six, vertical rigs were down five and directional rigs were down one. Among gas rigs, horizontal rigs were down two to 239, directional rigs were up three to 62 and vertical rigs were up eight to 37.
