North America Loses 26 Rigs
North America dropped 26 rigs week on week, according to Baker Hughes’ latest rotary rig count, which was published on March 10.
The decrease was driven by Canada, which slashed 23 rigs week on week, the count showed. The U.S. dropped the remaining three rigs, the count outlined.
The total North America rig count now stands at 969, comprising 746 U.S. rigs and 223 Canada rigs, according to Baker Hughes’ count, which revealed that Canada’s total is made up of 139 oil rigs and 84 gas rigs. The total U.S. rig count is shown to comprise 590 oil rigs, 153 gas rigs, and three miscellaneous rigs. Of the U.S. total, 731 rigs are classified as land rigs, 14 are classified as offshore rigs, and one is classified as an inland water rig.
Looking at year ago figures, the count revealed that North America has added 100 rigs year on year. These additions were driven by the U.S., according to the count, which highlighted that the country added 83 rigs compared year ago levels. Canada was shown to have added 17 rigs year on year. The yearly U.S. additions comprised 63 oil rigs, 18 gas rigs, and two miscellaneous rigs, while the Canada additions comprised 12 oil rigs and five gas rigs, according to Baker Hughes.
Baker Hughes’ previous rig count, which was published on March 3, showed that North America dropped two rigs week on week. That rig count outlined that the U.S. dropped four rigs week on week, while Canada added two rigs week on week.
Baker Hughes, which has issued the rotary rig counts to the petroleum industry since 1944, describes the figures as an important business barometer for the drilling industry and its suppliers. The company obtains its working rig location information in part from Enverus, which produces daily rig counts using GPS tracking units.
