National Oilwell Varco (NYSE:NOV):Cramer's rigmaker choice.
Nabors Industries Ltd. (NYSE:NBR): Oil Rig Operators
Rowan Companies (NYSE:RDC): Shallow Offshore Drilling
Globalsantafe Corp. (NYSE:GSF): Deeper Sea Drilling. This company has a $7 billion order-book backlog and just announced a $2 billion buyback.
Smith Intl (SII): " ... the best drill bit player in the business," according to Cramer. This company recently announced a 20-million share buyback program, which will provide security in a challenging market.
Grant Prideco (GRP RETIRED): This is not a pure drill pipe play, but it makes an excellent product, according to Cramer.
Hydril Co. (HYDL): Blowout Preventer/Well head gear. HYDL not only is involved in a large-scale buyback, but it beat its most recent earnings estimates by 9 cents a share.
AMCOL Intl (NYSE:ACO): Drilling fluid and mud

Superior Energy Services (NYSE:SPN): Drill Production
FMC Technologies (NYSE:FTI): Subsea Equipment
