In the following video, Motley Fool energy analyst Joel South talks us through EOG Resources' (NYSE:EOG) third-quarter earnings release, and why the company's production helped it significantly surpass all the projections for the quarter. The company's huge production abilities compared with its competitors, and its railroads that give it dominating transport capabilities, have let it stay ahead and continually growing even as natural gas prices fall to an all-time low. All this is great news for shareholders, as the prices per share continue to rise.
