    For companies with natural gas operations in the U.S., the situation
remains bright. The shift away from coal-based power generation to
natural gas could help bolster profits moving forward, as an increasing
number of power plants are turning to natural gas as it offers several
advantages over other energy options. Natural gas vehicle filling
stations are also cropping up across the country, as more individuals and
companies are switching to natural gas powered vehicles in the wake of
expensive conventional fuel. Furthermore, The U.S. is currently looking

    While there are a plethora of positives for the industry, it is not
without its headwinds. Lower natural gas prices reduced earnings for a
number of industry players in the 3rd quarter, and continued price
volatility could persist through the end of the year and into 2013.
Competition is also fierce, and those that are able to keep costs down
while still maximizing production could outperform their peers.
