Hospital de Maipú abriría a comienzos de 2014

99% de avance:

Un 99% y 98% de avance tienen las obras gruesas de los nuevos hospitales de Maipú y La Florida, respectivamente, según el MOP. En el primer caso, el 65% fue recepcionado y está siendo equipado. Eso implica que, tras la recepción final, podría iniciar la marcha blanca en octubre y abrir totalmente el primer trimestre de 2014.

Ambos recintos fueron pensados para funcionar bajo un nuevo modelo de gestión, como hospitales clínicos. Pero como la ley que los crea está entrampada en el Congreso, Salud no descarta que Maipú funcione como hospital autogestionado hasta que se apruebe la ley o un veto presidencial.

  • New rules introduced by insurance regulator Susep regarding the calculation of premium retention rates will likely stimulate insurance growth in the oil segment, said Moody's analyst Diego Kashiwakura, citing a Susep representative. Insurers and reinsurers in Brazil are not allowed to cede more than 50% of premiums written on an annual basis under current regulations (insurers in the surety, agro and export credit segments are exempt from these rules). The new regulations issued by Susep will reduce the contribution of oil premiums to this ceding limit by 60%. This means only 40% of premiums related to the oil segment will go towards the calculation of the limit, as opposed to 100% previously. The rules are expected to make the oil segment more attractive to insurers, especially small or less capitalized ones that have traditionally been discouraged from participating in the segment due to the high volumes involved, Kashiwakura told BNamericas.

  • The future of Argentina's petrochemicals sector will depend largely on the government, according to the head of Brazilian petrochemicals consultancy MaxiQuim, Otavio Carvalho. The state will need to enact transparent and investment-friendly hydrocarbon reforms to ensure a steady supply of feedstock. "Overall, what a petrochemicals company needs is a constant flow, a significant amount of hydrocarbons into a separation unit and into a cracker," Carvalho told BNamericas. "No one's going to put any money in Argentina unless they [are sure] that this flow will be constant and not be curtailed in any way." A steady decline in hydrocarbons production led to a shortage of feedstock in the first decade of the 21st century, Carvalho explained. But as the Vaca Muerta shale reserves become more available, the potential for a rejuvenated petrochemicals sector is there. "The history is that they're short on ethane, they're short on methane [and] they're short on power," Carvalho said. "And as soon as they resolve their energy situation, there will be lots of opportunities for Dow to explore the ethane that is contained in these large amounts of natural gas." Carvalho cautioned that petrochemicals growth in Argentina won't happen overnight and that it will require new infrastructure, namely separation units. "We think that in the near future – I mean in two years – they should be much more balanced in terms of energy," Carvalho said, "so they can start thinking about new petrochemicals projects." BNamericas will host its 11th Southern Cone Energy Summit in Lima, Peru, on November 12-13. Click here to download the agenda.

  • Standard & Poor's (S&P) lowered Venezuela's long-term foreign and local currency sovereign credit ratings to 'CCC+' from 'B-', with a negative outlook. S&P also lowered the short-term foreign and local currency ratings to 'C' from 'B.' "Economic recession, high inflation and growing external liquidity pressures will continue to erode the government's capacity to pay external obligations over the next two years," said S&P in a release. The Venezuelan government, moreover, is seen as unlikely to take corrective measures, S&P added. The downgrade also reflects Venezuela's increasing reliance on favorable oil prices to meet financial obligations and its higher vulnerability to nonpayment. The negative outlook reflects that worsening economic distortions and political polarization could exacerbate external liquidity and governability, increasing the risk of sovereign default.
