InterOil (NYSE:IOC) just posted earnings this week, but if you are interested in this company, then you shouldn't waste your time reading over the report. Why? Because the thing that really matters is whether Total (NYSE:TOT) makes a final investment decision on the deal the two companies struck late last year. With the capital to make the necessary investments for needs such as an LNG terminal and the full development of the field, Total is still more or less in the driver's seat in this relationship.

That doesn't mean, though, that there aren't other options for InterOil. In the video below, find out why there are actually still plenty of chances for InterOil to partner with other major players such as ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM) in Papua New Guinea to realize its natural gas potential.
