by Bill McBride on 4/13/2017 04:16:00 PM

A few comments from Steven Kopits of Princeton Energy Advisors LLC on Apr 13, 2017:

• Total US oil rigs were up 11 to 673

• US horizontal oil rigs added 11 to 572
...
• The US horizontal oil rig count is now within three weeks of the entire number necessary to cover the US contribution to incremental global oil supply.

• US supply is blowing right through earlier production gain forecasts, up by 600 kbpd over the last half year
