Moody's cuts ENI rating to Baa1

Weak oil prices dictate lower dividends

(ANSA) - New York, March 24 - Moody's Investors Service on Thursday cut the credit rating of ENI oil and gas giant from A3 to Baa1, with a stable outlook.
    The downgrade came as low oil prices and weak gas markets continue taking a toll on the company's cash flow, Moody's said.
    The ratings agency viewed as positive the company's move to cut its dividends by about 28% in 2015 and confirm reduced dividends in 2016.
