Baker Hughes reported on Friday that the number of oil and gas rigs in the United States rose by 8 last week. The total number of active oil and gas rigs in the U.S. is now 392—or 398 less than this time last year.

The oil and gas rig count has risen for eleven weeks in a row for a total gain of 82.

The oil rig count increased by 4 this week, and the number of gas rigs also rose by 4. The number of miscellaneous rigs remained unchanged.

The EIA’s estimate for oil production in the United States for the week ending January 29 was 10.9 million barrels—still 2.2 million bpd off the all-time high reached last March, but above the 2020 low reached on August 28 last year of 9.7 million bpd.

Canada’s overall rig count decreased this week by 3. Oil and gas rigs in Canada are now at 171 active rigs and down 86 year on year.
