This could be quite a year for oil services companies, as a recent Barclays report estimates that exploration and production companies will spend a record $644 billion in 2013. While there are risks, investors should look at this as a great opportunity to look at oil services companies. With that in mind, Fool.com contributor Tyler Crowe and Motley Fool analyst Joel South discuss three under-the-radar oil services companies that could have a killer year.
