    Oil Drilling Activity

    Onshore US drilling activity decreased by 64 with a total active count of 646 (Y/Y decrease of 354) rigs; those targeting oil down 62, with the total at 562. Across the three major unconventional oil basins, the oilrig count decreased 42 (8.5% drop w/w), with Permian down 31, Williston down 6 and Eagle Ford down 5.

    US Shale Oil Drillers are slashing capital spending and dropping rigs in response to low oil prices. Drillers have removed 108 (~15% drop) rigs the past two weeks….more to come!
