IHS Petrodata™ Weekly Rig Count

Identify regional and global opportunities with accurate offshore rig data

Is your rig count accurate?

Updated each Friday, the Weekly Rig Count provides accurate offshore drilling rig data by major region and globally. Our team of global analysts compiles oil rig data daily through direct contact with rig owners and offshore operators to derive dependable figures.

October 20, 2017

The rig count tables below include all jackups, semi-submersibles and drillships. Marketed contracted reflects all marketed rigs that have a contract in place. This does not reflect the number of rigs actually working at any given time as some contracted rigs may be moving between locations, undergoing maintenance, waiting on weather, etc.

The information provided and much more data on the offshore rig fleet can be sourced via the IHS proprietary offshore rigs information products, RigPoint and RigBase.
