Industry at a Glance: Oil & Gas Prices, Production, Rig Counts

Industry at a glance

Craig Fleming, World Oil

Crude prices surged to four-month highs in April, on falling U.S. output and evidence that further declines are imminent, due to historically low rig activity. Conversely, Russian production hit a 29-year high in March, at 10.91 MMbopd, but Saudi Arabia, exercising restraint, held output steady at 10.12 MMbopd. Despite persisting oversupply at the time of writing, WTI was trading at $45.35/bbl, with Brent at $47.24/bbl. International rig activity was down 12% to 1,086, with the annual spring thaw in Canada idling 123 land rigs. The average U.S. rig count continues its unpresented decline, with just 443 rigs active in April, a drop of 8%, or 36 units, compared to the previous month.
