Basic Energy Services' (NYSE: BAS  ) rig utilization rate increased on a month-over-month basis in February. The figure advanced to 71% against 67% in January. The number of rigs serviced by Basic remained the same at 425.

Several other operating metrics were released by the company. It also said that its fluid service truck count dropped by two, to 962. Fluid service truck hours also declined, landing at 177,600, compared to January's number of 186,500.
