KBRA Releases Research – KBRA Zooms in on Canadian Energy

May 21, 2019

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 21, 2019--

Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases a new report focusing on Canadian Energy. As KBRA expands our energy sector coverage, we would be remiss if we overlooked what is taking place in Canada.

In the KBRA Zooms in on Canadian Energy report, we highlight our credit views on a sample portfolio of 60 Canadian energy producers and discusses policy decisions by the sovereign and sub-sovereign governments that have an impact on the sector. The report also provides an overview of the dynamics underway in Canada’s oil sector in regard to pricing, supply, and exports. On balance, KBRA leans toward being constructive on the sector over the long term as infrastructure shortfalls are more likely to be addressed. Our view on the sector considers the improving performance of the model portfolio of Canadian energy corporates over the last two years as well as the policy environment, which may turn out to be the fulcrum that rebalances Canada’s energy story toward a more positive direction. This commentary builds on KBRA’s emphasis on bringing together viewpoints and expertise from across the company, in this case Sovereigns and Corporates, in order to maximize analytical depth.

The main takeaways include:
