Oil: "A big jump" in Rig Counts

by Calculated Risk on 4/07/2019 11:13:00 AM

A few comments from Steven Kopits of Princeton Energy Advisors LLC on April 5, 2019:

• Oil rigs rebounded sharply, +15 to 831

• Horizontal oil rig counts also saw a nice move up, +8 to 734

• The Permian took all the net horizontal oil rig adds, +8, for the best week in a year

• One might be tempted to call the end of the mini-cycle – again – this week. It certainly could be.
