CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fitch Ratings has published a new report on the 2016 Outlook for the Latin American Oil and Gas sector.
Fitch expects pressure from lower crude prices to continue negatively affecting equity prices and credit spreads for Latin American integrated, exploration and production (E&P), and drilling and service companies. Fitch's Rating Outlooks for companies in the region are negative, primarily due to the deeper and longer-than-anticipated downturn in the industry as well as macroeconomic headwinds in the region. Fitch expects this pressure to continue affecting high-yield E&P and services issuers more severely.
