RigER providing 
Drilling Rigs Activity Reports as an information service to the oilfield service industry.

Oilfield service and equipment rentals demand directly depends on Drilling Rigs Activity.


The Drilling Rigs Activity Reports are an important business barometer for the drilling industry, oilfield service, rentals and its suppliers.
When drilling rigs are active, they consume products and services produced by the oil service industry.
The active rig count acts as a leading indicator of demand for products used in drilling, completing, producing and processing hydrocarbons.

Industries usually measure economic impact by approximating a dollar value to represent their purchasing power.
The oil and gas industry measures economic impact by counting active rigs.
A drilling rig requires many oilfield support services to drill a well.
And after the well is complete, other oilfield services go to work to bring the well into production and to maintain it.
Rig utilization is the percentage of active rigs. In Canada, rig utilization has a distinct annual cycle.
