With a clear need for the best onshore rigs to complete complex horizontal shale wells, Nabors Industries and Helmerich & Payne are in the perfect position to supply the market.

There have been several success stories in America's energy boom, but there are still several companies that have still kept quiet that could be in line for a great 2014. Two companies that investors should put on their radars are Nabors Industries (NBR 7.14%) and Helmerich & Payne (HP 4.53%), and here's why.

Shale wells have become increasingly complex over the past couple years thanks to developments in pad drilling, well spacing, and increased lateral drilling lengths. To make these types of wells possible and economical, exploration and production companies need high-specification drilling rigs, and are willing to pay top dollar for it. With two of the best rigs on the market, Nabors and H&P can cash in on this opportunity. Tune in to the video below to find out what makes their offerings unique and why they are worth getting acquainted with.
