The story of America’s largest natural gas production company is one of the most profitable in the company’s history. On Saturday, the company announced its third quarterly profit of $2.6 billion — an average profit of $1.7 billion — as its gas production climbed to a record and profits jumped to the highest level in more than a decade.
