The Houston firm said Friday in its weekly report that 1,564 rigs were exploring for oil and 330 for gas. Two were listed as miscellaneous. A year ago there were 1,776 active rigs.

Of the major oil- and gas-producing states, Kansas gained two rigs while Arkansas, Louisiana, West Virginia and Wyoming each rose by one.

Texas declined by 13 rigs, Alaska was off three, North Dakota was down two and California, Colorado, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania dropped one apiece.
