In the following video, Motley Fool energy analysts Joel South and Taylor Muckerman discuss ConocoPhillips , and the recent Department of Energy approval for its Freeport LNG facility to export liquefied natural gas. This is the second facility in the U.S. to gain DOE approval, which could bring the total export capacity up to around 3.4 billion cubic feet per day. In the video, Joel tells investors why increased natural gas exports will have a stabilizing effect on the price of the commodity and discusses why this could make low-cost natural gas producers a great long-term play.
