Egypt Is Causing Serious Headaches for This Company

In this week's edition of The Motley Fool's energy-focused show, Drilling for Value, energy analysts Joel South and Taylor Muckerman discuss several topics around natural gas with Motley Fool senior analyst Michael Olsen, CFA.

The value of the reserves here is well documented, but extracting that value could continue to prove difficult.
