by Bill McBride on 9/09/2018 08:17:00 AM

A few comments from Steven Kopits of Princeton Energy Advisors LLC on September 7, 2018:"That's all, folks!"

• Oil rigs declined, -2 to 860

• Horizontal oil rigs gained, +1 to 766
...
• Horizontal oil rigs have gone exactly nowhere in the last 12 weeks

• The breakeven oil price to add horizontal oil rigs continues to creep up, now around $74 WTI. This is a good bit higher than the current price around $67.
