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

In today's video, Isaac discusses a move by Chespeake Energy to boost cash by announcing that it would sell key assets in the Permian Basin. Shareholders have voiced concern over Chesapeake's debt level, and this withdrawal just continues a trend that many natural gas companies are following. Still, opportunity can be found in diversified rig operators and companies that will benefit from rock-bottom natural gas prices.

The natural gas sector will continue to evolve, and the Natural Gas Act could change the face of energy consumption in the near future. If you're looking for potential stocks to tap into natural gas, you must read The Motley Fool's special free report: "1 Stock to Own Before Nat Gas Act 2011 Becomes Law."
