Topics covered range from Petroleo Brasileiro's the effect of sanctions for Russian oil and gas companies, Petroleo Brasileiro S.A.'s (Petrobras) expected leverage levels and rating triggers, and state-linkages and mergers and acquisitions in Asia. The report also covers the credit implications of energy reforms in Mexico as well as in some Asian markets.
