In 3Q16, the US rig count fell 38% compared to 3Q15. The US rig count reached its multiyear high in September 2014 and since then, it has dropped 66% through December 30, 2016.

From September 30 until the week ended December 30, 2016, the US rig count rose ~26% to close at 658. A higher US rig count could increase Halliburton’s (HAL) revenues and earnings in 4Q16.
