Appalachian Horizontal Rigs: Q1 2011 to Present
Interesting to watch the geographical footprint shrink to the rig count low in 2016. The current rig reduction starting in mid-2019 has yet to hit the lows from 2016.
Map represents horizontal rigs per county at the end of each quarter sourced from Baker Hughes.
Rig count chart highlights Marcellus and Utica horizontal rigs. The Huron wells in Kentucky and other horizontal test wells are shown on the map, but not on the chart.
