Baker Hughes Rig Count: Canada -3 rigs to 143 rigs

Canada Rig Count is down 3 rigs from last week to 143, with oil rigs down 4 to 98 and gas rigs up 1 to 45.

Canada Rig Count is down 48 rigs from last year’s count of 191, with oil rigs down 25 and gas rigs down 23.

It is worth reminding that Baker Hughes changed its name to Baker Hughes Company last week following the recently-completed secondary offering of shares of Class A common stock and concurrent share repurchase which brought GE’s ownership in the company to below 50 percent of the voting power.

According to Baker Hughes, its new name and brand better reflect its current and intended principal business operations and diversified portfolio.
