The total number of active drilling rigs in the United States rose by 1 this week after rising by 3 last week, according to new data that Baker Hughes published Friday.

The total rig count rose to 626 this week. Since this time last year, Baker Hughes has estimated a loss of 158 active drilling rigs. This week’s count is 449 fewer rigs than the rig count at the beginning of 2019, before the pandemic.

The number of oil rigs fell by 2 to 503. Oil rigs are now down by 122 compared to this time last year. The number of gas rigs rose by 3 this week to 119, a loss of 34 active gas rigs from this time last year. Miscellaneous rigs stayed the same.
