Rig count still remaining steady.

Enverus reported 276 rigs were running in the U.S. as of Sept. 2. The count is down 3% in the last month and down 70% compared to the same time last year.

The industry has not recovered since the end of the second quarter. The Permian Basin, however, remains the most active region.

Enverus also reported that in the Ark-La-Tex region, which is home to the dry gas Haynesville Shale, the rig count is up 19%, or six rigs, since the end of the second quarter with an improving natural gas price outlook. In the Northeast, rig activity has fallen 14%, (five rigs) with the most active state being Pennsylvania. Ohio and West Virginia have also remained steady.
