Baker Hughes North American Rotary Rig Count

The North American rig count is issued as a service to the petroleum industry. In 1944 they began weekly counts of US and Canadian drilling activity.  These are an important business barometer for the drilling industry and its suppliers. When drilling rigs are active they consume products and services produced by the oil service industry. The active rig count acts as a leading indicator of demand for products used in drilling, completing, producing and processing hydrocarbons. They are released weekly at noon Central Time on the last day of the work week.
