Global Demand Strong for Natural Gas

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor and analyst Isaac Pino and consumer goods editor and analyst Austin Smith discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Isaac and Austin break down the global outlook for natural gas, comparing this fuel source to both oil and coal around the world. Two reports recently indicated that gas demand would steadily increase for the next 20 years, perhaps becoming the most widely used fuel in the world. With rampant growth in overseas markets, the most interesting opportunities for investors could lie in U.S. export terminals. As the first-mover in this space, Cheniere Energy could very well tap into tremendous growth in the next few decades.

Countries like China are developing policies that will force a shift from a coal-driven economy to natural gas. The U.S. is also contemplating such policies, which is why we studied the Natural Gas Act closely to identify the potential companies who could benefit.
