A sustained rise in oil prices has led to a resurgence in drilling activity and oil production growth. E&P companies are focused on capital discipline and improving shareholder returns. Oilfield service companies and drillers are slowly regaining earnings power after three tough years. Midstream companies have organic growth opportunities but contend with regulatory and structural changes. This session will cover:
• Moody’s outlook for oil & gas prices and industry profitability
• 2018 rating upgrades and downgrades and key drivers for rating changes
