The Top 5 U.S. Natural Gas Producers

The Department of Energy just released the results of an independent study touting the economic benefits of exporting U.S. natural gas. While many manufacturers are against exporting because it will drive the price of gas up, a higher gas price may mean that U.S. producers like ExxonMobil  (NYSE: XOM  ) and Chesapeake Energy  (NYSE: CHK  ) actually could start making money on this stuff again. In this video, energy analyst Aimee Duffy reviews the performance of natural gas prices over the past two years, and lists the top five U.S. producers in the third quarter.

The growing production of natural gas from hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling is flooding the North American market and resulting in low prices for natural gas. One midstream company that helps all that product move is Enterprise Products Partners. With its superior integrated asset base, EPD can profit from the massive bottlenecks in takeaway capacity by taking on large-scale projects.

    I agree text would have been much more useful, particularly because this was only a list! Isn't that type of content eminently well suited for presentation as text?! (Grocery lists, laundry lists, and other lists come to mind...)

    HOWEVER, I appreciated a chance to see Aimee in action. She's smart, competent, and obviously HARD-WORKING! Way to go, girl!

    Why don't you "dudes" provide full transcripts for all these brief videos?

    @ Khizhim

    Thank you for your comments on video transcription.

    We've explored many options for a reliable and quick transcription service, and i'm happy to say that we're closer than ever.

    It's been difficult to get transcripts for videos in the past because one of our goals is to deliver these pieces of content as quickly as possible to our readers. Typically the process to generate the transcript adds a significant lag to the publishing time.

    However, as you can see here:

    transcripts are starting to become a reality, and I hope to roll these features out in a more meaningful way in the future.

    We appreciate your feedback and patience while we try and improve the video experience for all viewers.

    Fool on!

    Elementary, Watson: video's take too long! We can read a lot faster than listen to someone speaking, anyway, most of us. Time is money, MF should know.
