Drilling days increased 62% in Canada and 76% in the US while service hours were up 42% over the third quarter of 2009. Abnormally wet weather in Canada restricted rig mobility and operating days for Precision's Canadian drilling and well service operations, otherwise Canadian results would have been meaningfully better.In the US, the average land rig count for the third quarter of 2010 was 1,590 compared to 927 in the third quarter of 2009. The average rig count in Canada was up 94% with the Q3 2010 at 359 versus 185 in the prior year period.
