Basic Info

US Rig Count, displays the number of active drilling rigs throughout the United States. The indicator is closely watched as a precursor to oil production in the US oil and gas production industry. Throughout the mid 2010s, US rig counts reached a low of 404 active drilling rigs in May 2016 following significant decreases in oil prices from previous years, then started to rebound as oil prices started to rise again and improvements in drilling technology made previously uneconomical oil deposits viable.

US Rig Count is at a current level of 448.00, up from 440.00 last week and up from 408.00 one year ago. This is a change of 1.82% from last week and 9.80% from one year ago.
