The Baker Hughes North America Rig Count tracks changes in the number of active operating oil and gas rigs on a weekly basis. Active rigs are essential for exploration and development.

The United States and Canada are separate components, and a separate count for the Gulf of Mexico is given as a subset of the U.S. total. The count includes only rigs that are significant users of oilfield services and supplies.
