U.S. drillers add oil and gas rigs this week
This week, 3 offshore rigs returned in the Gulf of Mexico, Baker Hughes said.
During the week ended Sept. 3, all 14 offshore oil rigs operating in the Gulf of Mexico, all of which were located off Louisiana, shut due to Ida.
The oil and gas rig count, an early indicator of future output, rose 9 to 521 in the week to Sept. 24, its highest since April 2020, Baker Hughes said. ■
