Canada Picking up the LNG Export Ball

While several different attempts at projects to export liquefied natural gas, or LNG, from the United States have stalled as the government continues to drag its feet on licensing, Canada's National Energy Board has jumped ahead with the approval of its own site. In this video, contributors Tyler Crowe and Aimee Duffy discuss what this could mean for LNG exports in North America and what companies are shaping the LNG story.

The growing production of natural gas from hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling is flooding the North American market and resulting in record-low prices for natural gas. While there are several ways to play this event, Enterprise Products Partners has charted a course that could lead them to a near monopoly in one niche of the natural gas market. To help understand how this company is well-positioned in this unique space for years to come, check out The Motley Fool's new premium report on the Enterprise Products Partners by clicking here.
