Warren L. Baker, executive vice president of the International Association of Drilling Contractors, says it now seems certain 1172 operations will surpass 1171 by a substantial margin. "As long as there are more rigs working than in the preceding year, the outlook will represent an improvement over the steady and sometimes drastic decrease which has characterized U.S. drilling since IMS," Baker says. The first five months of 1972 had an average of 1,050 rotary drilling rigs in operation. This is 183 rigs or 18 per cent above the comparable year earlier period. Early June reports also offer encouragement. Activity sometimes drops a bit during June but the first three weekly reports for the month indicated an upward trend for active rigs, the average climbing from 1,922 tol.Wl.tolJM Baker says the weekly average this year has been under I,ON in only two weeks, with a Ml average reported April 14 and a M4 average on May IS. "This was a marked improvement over It7l, when there were five weeks with less than MO rigs, II weeks with less than MO rigs working, and four weeks with less than ISO rigs," he said. "The lowest point in 1171 was 814 rigs active on March 13, while the smallest number in 1172 was the M8 on April 4. There is a good chance that this figure will hold as the lowest level of 1*72." Baker says every month so far this year and four of the last five months of 1971 topped the averages for the previous year. "Thus, nine of the last 20 Kidnap Suspect Gives Self Up To Authorities ENNIS, Tex.
