A few comments from Steven Kopits of Princeton Energy Advisors LLC on Feb 2, 2018:
• Total US oil rigs were up, +6 to 765Click on graph for larger image.
• Horizontal oil rigs were similarly up, +6 to 668
• The Permian took a breather this week, with no horizontal gains after last week’s large 12 rig addition
• The oil price softened this week, with the Brent spread falling under $4. The price outlook is accordingly bearish as we head into turnaround season for the refineries.
CR note: This graph shows the US horizontal rig count by basin.
