The share of North America currently accounts for 55.8% of workers in the world’s rigs.

The number of active oil and gas rigs in the world in August rose for the fourth consecutive month and peaked in March 2015. This is evidenced by the us oilfield services company Baker Hughes posted on Wednesday, September 12.

On average in the last month in the world worked 2278 Assembly against 2251 in July. While the August level was 162 higher than in the same month of 2017.

In the U.S. the number of installations last month has not changed compared to July, reaching 1050. In Canada, their number increased by 16 – to 220 drilling rigs, which is the highest level in six months. Thus, the share of North America currently accounts for 55.8% of the working drilling rigs in the world, compared with 55% a year earlier.

The number of installations in August in Africa grew by six relative to the previous month to 104 drilling rigs (up to April 2015), in Europe – on five to 85, in Latin America – two to 192. In the middle East, their number increased by two and reached 402, which is the highest indicator since February of 2016. In the Asia-Pacific region, the number of drilling rigs decreased by four to 225.

We will remind, the world prices for oil continue to rise after the jump the day before, caused by the strong reduction of stocks of fuel in the United States. On the morning of 13 September, the price of November futures for Brent on London’s ICE Futures exchange rose $0,26 (0,33%) – to $79,32 per barrel.
