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. 

With crude oil prices rising because of Egypt, one would expect an oil and natural gas company to deliver strong results. Unfortunately for investors, that hasn't been the case for Apache (NYSE:APA). The company holds a meaningful portion of its oil assets in Egypt, and uncertainty around Apache's ability to monetize them has led to market and peer underperformance. The value of the reserves here is well documented, but extracting that value could continue to prove difficult.
