Deepwater regions around the world have been a driving force in the oil and natural gas world lately. Every player involved has been touting tremendous growth and even greater opportunity. Core Laboratories (NYSE:CLB) and Noble both surprised the market with their results last week, and a few other companies have that same opportunity this week.
Oceaneering International (NYSE:OII) is a pure play on the deepwater space with its remotely operated vehicles and other subsea equipment. Both it and its similarly priced peer, FMC Technologies (NYSE:FTI), compete for headlines tomorrow during earnings season. While guidance hasn't changed since last week, the market will almost certainly be looking for results on the high side or even expectation-beating numbers. What do Motley Fool analysts Joel South and Taylor Muckerman expect from these companies tomorrow?
