The U.S. rig count total is 1052, a gain of 100 from the previous year. At 182, the Canadian rig count is up 7 from last year.

Rigs classified as drilling for oil in Canada increased by 9 to 126 and those classified as gas rose 1 to 56. In the U.S., rigs classified as drilling for oil rose by 5 to 863, while those classified as gas were flat at 187.
