With energy prices sagging, oil and gas companies around the world are charting uncertain times. That uncertainty has led to a $70 billion mega-merger between Royal Dutch Shell and BG Group, a British-based natural gas producer.

The move gives Shell access to BG's gas projects around the world, especially in Australia and Africa. If the deal goes through, Shell would be come the biggest producer of liquefied natural gas in the world.

CNN Business Correspondent Maggie Lake discusses the deal and its implications with Here & Now's Robin Young.
