Pennsylvania added one working natural gas rig to its tally in the first two weeks of October, maintaining its slim lead over Ohio among Appalachian natural gas producers.
There were 32 rigs in Pennsylvania during the week ended Oct. 20, according to the latest data released by oilfield services company Baker Hughes. That compares to 29 in Ohio, where the rig count has remained steady since the end of August. Pennsylvania has seen its rig count stay in the low- to mid-30s all year.
