Aggressive investment plans, large debt issuances, and persistently high oil prices have resulted in an increased interest from investors in the Latin American oil and gas sector, according to a new special report by Fitch Ratings.

The report addresses Investors' Questions (IQ) for the sector. It covers the major players in the region to add more insight to the credit quality and rating triggers of the LatAm oil and gas rated entities.

Topics covered range from Petroleo Brasileiro's (Petrobras) expected leverage levels to Mexico's energy reform and Pacific Rubiales' future challenges.

The full report titled Latin American Oil and Gas IQ is available on the Fitch web site at www.fitchratings.com.
