The 1 Key Driver for Royal Dutch Shell's Future

Any way you look at it, an investment in Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE: RDS-A  ) over the past couple of years has been a disappointment. For the company to really turn it around, it will need to focus its attention on one key aspect of its project portfolio: liquefied natural gas. While Chevron (NYSE: CVX  ) and ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM  ) may have big plans for LNG as well, Shell has a very long history in the game and its newest innovation, the Prelude floating LNG facility, could be a game changer for remote offshore natural gas projects. 

The focus on LNG could be a major win for Shell, but does it make the company a buy today? In this video, Fool contributor Tyler Crowe drills into Shell's development plans and how investors should view them.

1 company making LNG possible
For Shell's and every other major oil company's LNG plans to work out, they need to be able to access more challenging natural gas sources. To help make this happen, there is one behind-the-scenes energy company that is teaching big oil how to drill better, and the outlook for this company is so great  that The Motley Fool's chief investment officer has named it his pick for this year. Find out which stock it is in our special report: "The Motley Fool's Top Stock for 2013," a comprehensive look at this game-changing company.
