Rig Count

Rig Count June 30, 2017

The US oil rig count has fallen for the first time in 24 weeks, ending a record streak.

The oil rig count fell by two to 756, oilfields-services giant Baker Hughes said in its weekly report on Friday.

The gas rig count rose by one to 184. With miscellaneous rigs down one to zero, the total rig count fell by one to 940. Among major oil- and gas-producing states, Texas gained one rig. Alaska and Colorado each lost one.

The rest were unchanged. The U.S. rig count peaked at 4,530 in 1981. It bottomed out in May of 2016 at 404.
