WASHINGTON, Aug 26 (Reuters) – Producers, pipeline and
storage operators, and oilfield service companies will get a
credit ratings boost if the United States lifts its ban on most
crude oil exports, the ratings agency Standard & Poor’s said on
Ratings for oil refiners, who have enjoyed the ample
supplies of crude flowing from the U.S. shale oil boom, might
suffer slightly if the ban is scrapped, the agency added.
