The Americas are drilling, ROW are not

Canadian rig count leaps 30% on the month.

In fact, over the past 2 months, the Canadians have doubled the amount of rigs put to work.

Even with that effort, the Canadians are still 25% below its February 2020 peak.

While if we only look at the U.S. and Latin America, they are a whisker away from its February 2020 number.

Uncannily, Europe, Africa and the Middle East all have approximately 29% less rigs cranking away than seen in February 2020.

Globally we’ve seen 2 consecutive months of a 4% increase in rigs (count) deployed.

Total global rig count is closing in on the March 2020 figure, not close to February 2020 and still some way to go towards any month back to 2017. 

So, the Americas are trying but the rest of world is tempered.
