The U.S. rig count rose last week to 443 as of Feb. 17, according to Enverus Rig Analytics. The count is up 4% in the last month but still down 46% year-over-year.

The largest increase week-over-week was in the Appalachia region, where five rigs were added. Gulfport Energy Corp. is running two for the first time since February 2020 and Cabot Oil & Gas Corp. is now operating four rigs, the most the company has had since May 2019. The overall Haynesville rig count is up by two week-over-week, with 45 rigs running, including three rigs that Indigo Natural Resources LLC is operating in Louisiana’s Natchitoches Parish.
