U.S. offshore rig count climbs up as storm passes

Following the return of several rigs to the Gulf of Mexico, the U.S. offshore rig count climbed back up again last week, according to a weekly rig count reports by the oilfield services provider Baker Hughes. 

To remind, the U.S. offshore rig count took a hit two weeks ago after the tropical storm Hermine forced some operators to move their rigs of the storm’s path in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
