A few comments from Steven Kopits of Princeton Energy Advisors LLC on July 20, 2018:

• A brutal for rig

• Total oil rigs fell, -5 to 858

• Horizontal oil rig counts came in -7 to 762

• A year ago, operators were adding rigs at $50 WTI; now they are withdrawing rigs at $70 WTI.

• All this begs the underlying economics of shale production after 500 horizontal oil rigs have been added in this cycle.
