U.S. And Canadian Oil Rig Counts Continue To Rebound

Baker Hughes reported on Friday that the number of oil rigs in the United States rose by 6 to 211.

The total number of active oil and gas rigs increased for the week by 5, with oil rigs rising by 6 and gas rigs falling by 1.

Total oil and gas rigs in the United States are now down by 564 compared to this time last year.

The EIA’s estimate for oil production in the United States fell sharply for the second week in a row for the week ending October 16—the last week for which there is data, to 9.9 million barrels of oil per day. U.S. oil production is down 3.2 million bpd from its all-time high reached earlier this year.

Canada’s overall rig count rose this week as well, by 3. Oil and gas rigs in Canada are now at 83 active rigs, and down 64 year on year. 

The Frac Spread Count provided by Primary Vision showed an increase this week to 134, from 130 in the week prior. Over the last four weeks, the frac spread has increased steadily, with a combined increase of 33.

WTI was trading down on Friday, as was the Brent benchmark, with both set to finish out the week lower than last week as Europe dished out new lockdown measures and several industry reports, including the IEA and OPEC, painted gloomy pictures about oil demand’s slow recovery.

At 11:14 pm EDT, WTI was trading down 0.52% at $40.43—down less than $0.50 per barrel week on week. Brent was trading down 0.40% on the day, at $42.29, down roughly $.60 on the week.   

By 1:09 pm, WTI was trading at $39.87 per barrel, with Brent changing hands at $41.77 per barrel.

    Who the heck is even buying West Canada Select at the moment?

    Anyhow should continue to be a great market for Tesla given how expensive everything up there is but in particular fuel. Certainly no shortage of electricity tho obviously..
