As the race to export liquefied natural gas, or LNG, from North America heats up, Chevron (NYSE:CVX) may be looking to see who else wants to join in. The company recently hinted on its most recent conference call that it might bring in another partner for its Kitimat LNG joint venture with Apache (NYSE:APA). Costs for these facilities all around the world seem to be going up, so having a third party to bear the brunt of these costs cold be very helpful for Chevron as it looks to make a final investment decision on the facility.

Tune into the video below where contributor Tyler Crowe takes a look at what Chevron will probably be looking for, and points out a couple companies that fit the bill.
