Baker Hughes US oil rig count 343 vs 351 prior

Oil and gas rig data from Baker Hughes:

  • Fresh low since Nov 2009
  • Prior oil rigs 351
  • Natural gas rigs 88
  • Prior gas rigs 89
  • Total rigs 431
  • Prior total rigs 440

Oil rigs have fallen dramatically since the beginning of 2015 but that doesn't tell the whole story. Efficiency is far greater than before and many long-term plays have come on-line. US production is down just 4.4% year-over-year.
