*Canadian rig count provided by Topco Oilsite Products

Active Rig The rig is active if, on average, it is crewed and worked every day during the month.

Available Rig The rig is available if a rig has a crew and is ready to work, but is not working.

Idle Rig The rig is idle if the rig is capable of being put to work in less than 48 hours and does not require spending in excess of $50,000 to activate it, and does not have a crew currently assigned.

Stacked Rig The rig is stacked if the rig does not have a crew assigned and could not be put to work without significant investment in repairs and additional equipment in excess of $50,000.
