A few comments from Steven Kopits of Princeton Energy Advisors LLC on Feb 4, 2017:

• US oil rig count up by 7 this week to 609

• US horizontal oil rigs were up by 11
• Horizontal oil rigs adds have averaged 12 per week for the last seven weeks

• The OPEC production cut thesis now warrants a closer review—shales are going to prove more resilient than people are thinking
