The number of active rigs in the US jumped by eight this week after falling by two last week, according to data from Houston-based services provider Baker Hughes.

The majority of gains were made by drillers targeting natural gas, who added six rigs overall for a total of 192 units. That is 196 more than in the same week a year ago.

Oil drillers also added two rigs for a total of 766, 392 more than a year ago.
