Fitch: Eagle Ford Spending Easier on Midstream Credits

Liquids-rich gas and high initial production rates from oil wells are driving red hot interest in the Eagle Ford Shale, and this is only bolstered by the region’s established midstream infrastructure and proximity to energy markets, Fitch Ratings said in a new report. More isolated shale basins need costly “mega pipelines,” which are tougher on credit ratings, Fitch said.

Industry Brief

As the Pacific Northwest’s dominant energy player, the federal Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) has adopted what it described as a landmark settlement on a residential exchange program that it hopes will end years of dispute over how BPA makes low-cost hydroelectric supplies available to small residential and farm customers of investor-owned utilities (IOU). Given the criticism of BPA for shunning natural gas and wind power generators in the face of abundant water supplies this spring and summer, the federal power behemoth is hoping it has a win-win, noting that the deal has the backing of six regional IOUs, three state regulatory commissions, and most public-sector utilities representing 88% of BPA’s customers and 93% of the power consumed in the region. Under the settlement, IOU customers are in line to get about $3.3 billion in payments during a 17-year period, beginning at $182.1 million in fiscal 2012 and increasing to $286.1 million by fiscal 2028.
