Drilled but uncompleted oil and gas wells in the U.S. 2019-2020, by region

Well drilling activity fell in most oil and gas producing regions in the United States in early 2020. As the coronavirus pandemic resulted in oil demand and oil prices declining dramatically, the amount of drilled put uncompleted wells in the Eagle Ford fell to 1,166 in September 2020. Meanwhile, the number of U.S. oil and gas rigs in use decreased by more than one third between December 2019 and September 2020.

Supplementary notes

The data does not distinguish between oil-directed rigs and gas-directed rigs because once a well is completed it may produce both oil and gas; more than half of the wells in the U.S. produce both.
Figures are continuously revised by source and may thus show differently in original document.
