The number of rigs targeting gas in the Middle East rose by 2.1% in April from the previous month, to 98. The rig count increased by 25% in both Egypt and Oman, which more than offset a decline in drilling in Pakistan. Just six rigs targeting gas were in operation in Pakistan during April, down from 10 rigs during the same month last year.
