SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Link to Fitch Ratings' Report: 2014 Midyear Outlook: Energy Infrastructure North America (Near-Term Stability Expected Across Asset Types)
The mid-year 2014 outlook for thermal, renewable and oil and gas projects is stable, according to a Fitch Ratings report.
Fixed-price revenue contracts underpin the stable outlook for thermal power projects, typically incorporating strong credit quality counterparties and cost recovery for fuel and operating expenses.
Most rated renewable energy projects benefit from long-term revenue contracts, supporting the stable outlook. Projects with sufficient contractual protections against price and volume risks should remain stable over the long term.
Fitch expects oil and gas project ratings to remain stable due to their contractual protections, parent guarantees, and strong demand for refined products and natural gas.
