The No. 1 Company for the Natural Gas Revolution

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editors/analysts Brendan Byrnes and Isaac Pino discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition Brendan and Isaac discuss natural gas, which is priced incredibly low right now. While Brendan doesn't believe that natural gas will remain this cheap long-term, he does think that it will become increasingly attractive as a transportation fuel, partly because of the high price of oil. One company that Brendan likes to take advantage of lower natural gas prices is Westport Innovations, which has the technology to turn diesel engines into natural gas engines. Two other companies, Cheniere Energy and Clean Energy Fuels, could be poised to take advantage of low natural gas prices as well. Find out why.

The Natural Gas Act could change the face of energy consumption in one of our nation's largest industries. One of the companies that Brendan mentions in the video was also picked out by our team of All-Star analysts as the stock to benefit most if the Natural Gas Act becomes law. To get the name and detailed analysis of this company, check out The Motley Fool's special free report: "1 Stock to Own Before Nat Gas Act 2011 Becomes Law."

    I would be very curious what companies will most benefit from the construction of the tankers for NG and the subsequent shipping of NG around the world?

    Unfortunately, no one knows when the NAT GAS act will come up for a vote. Right now it's trapped in the House. Interestingly, Bob Casey has introduced a new natural gas bill to the Senate. You can read about it here:

    Thanks for watching!
