The Bakken-Three Forks rig count increased by 2 to 175 rigs running over the past week. The NDIC notes around 192 rigs are active in North Dakota, but around 18 of those are in the process of moving in and rigging up.
In recent Bakken news, EOG Resources plans on drilling 80-net wells in 2014. That’s nearly double the number of net-wells drilled in 2013, which was 54. At that rate, the company has a drilling inventory in the Bakken of ~8 years.
