Being a first mover in North American unconventional oil and gas plays has given Chesapeake Energy one of the strongest asset profiles in the U.S. natural gas market. The same thing happened on the oil side of the equation, but nobody seems to notice as much. Today, Fool.com contributor Tyler Crowe and Motley Fool analyst Joel South talk about this quiet giant, Continental Resources , and how getting in on the ground floor in the Bakken region is really starting to pay off for the company. Thanks to improved takeaway capacity for the region and some of the highest quality crude in North America, the Bakken has potential to transform Continental into a big winner.

Energy investors would be hard-pressed to find another company trading at a deeper discount than Chesapeake Energy. Its share price depreciated after negative news surfaced concerning the company's management and spiraling debt picture. While these issues still persist, giant steps have been taken to help mitigate the problems.
