The Baker Hughes North American rig count is up 16 rigs in the July 14 week to 1,143, resuming its climb after last week's posting of a decline for the first time in 10 weeks, and just as last week, a big swing in the Canadian count, but up, overshadowed any change in the U.S. The US rig is in fact unchanged in the week at 952 but is up 505 rigs from last year at this time. The Canadian count is up 16 rigs to 191 and up 96 rigs from last year.
For the U.S. count, rigs classified as drilling for oil are up 2 to 765 while gas rigs are down 2 to 187. For the Canadian count, oil rigs are up 1 to 106 and gas rigs are up 15 to 85.
