Recently analysts from Fitch Ratings' North American Energy team have met with investors to discuss developments and trends in the pipeline, midstream and MLP sectors. Following these meeting, Fitch has published its presentation to investors, available on the Fitch web site.

On an overall basis, Fitch's outlook for these sectors remains fairly stable. Fitch expects demand for infrastructure to continue in the long term, and sector issuers have solid access to the capital markets.

Discussions included Fitch's view on the outlooks for different subsectors in the field, discussions of specific challenges facing firms, including low NGL prices, recontracting risk for select pipelines, and the impact of a slowing economic environment. Issuers of interest include: DCP Midstream, DCP Midstream Partners, Energy Transfer Partners, Enterprise Products, Kinder Morgan/El Paso, MarkWest, and NuStar.
