Oklahoma’s rig count increased to 105 this week as the number of working rigs nationally continued to fall, Baker Hughes reported Friday.

The national working rig count declined by two to 988, off 57 from the 1,045 that were drilling the same week a year ago. The number of rigs drilling for oil declined by two, to 805, while the number of rigs drilling for natural gas remained unchanged at 183.

In Oklahoma, 138 rigs were operating the same week a year ago. The number of rigs working in the Cana Woodford basin increased by one, to 47.

The most active fields this week, Baker Hughes said, were the Permian in west Texas and southeast New Mexico at 457, the south Texas Eagle Ford at 74, the Marcellus Shale at 63, the Williston at 56 and the Haynesville at 52.
