Drillers cut six oil rigs in the week to Aug. 2, bringing the total count down to 770, the lowest since February 2018, General Electric’s Baker Hughes said.

That is the most weekly declines in a row since March when drillers cut rigs for six consecutive weeks.

During the same week a year ago there were 859 active rigs.
