The EIA combines statistics on the total number of drilling rigs currently in operation. Theses show changes in oil and natural gas production for all of the major plays in the US. Including the  Eagle Ford shale, Bakken, Haynesville, Marcellus, Niobrara, Permian Basin, and the Utica.

Their reporting does not make a distinction between an oil rig or a gas rig because a completed well will most likely produce oil and gas.

The EIA is focuses only on these 7  areas, because they account for over 90% US oil production and the entire natural gas production for the last seven years.
