Rig Counts Continue Their Plummet

As the latest Baker Hughes rig count continues to plummet with the collapse in oil pricing some are still trying to catch a bottom.

Total Rigs down to 1633
Down -43 or -2.6% compared to last week
Down -144 or -8.1% year-over-year

Gas seems to be shuttering more than oil and inland waters more than land or offshore.

With many pundits forecasting crude to remain low for a few years (barring disruption in supply) this will be interesting to monitor going forward.

With Schlumberger (SLB) to layoff 9000 and Baker Hughes (BHI) to layoff another 7000, this is only the tip of the iceberg.
