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.

  • Mexico has created the bio-energy innovation center (Cemie-Bio) to bolster the research and development of bio-fuels as an alternative energy source. The center aims to unite the efforts of the academic and industrial sectors to foment the use of renewable energy in Mexico, according to the energy ministry (Sener). The creation of the Cemie-Bio was announced during a bio-energy workshop organized by Sener, the airports and auxiliary services agency (Asa), IDB, Danish firm Novozymes and Mexico's agency for international cooperation and development (Amexcid). The workshop was designed to draw up an agenda for the development of bio-fuels for Mexico's transportation sector. State-owned oil firm Pemex has already begun a tender process to acquire anhydrous ethanol for use as a 5.8% component of gasoline to be sold in the states of San Luis Potosí, Tamaulipas and Veracruz, according to Sener's director for sustainability Efraín Villanueva Arcos. The IDB sees the development of bio-fuels as a mechanism for promoting social development in Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as reducing greenhouse gases, said the bank's senior energy specialist Arnaldo Vieira de Carvalho. Mexico and Denmark have a bilateral agreement on mitigating climate change and developing renewable energy use, which will allow for greater coordination between both countries' authorities and private sectors, Denmark's ambassador to Mexico Henrik Bramsen Hahn said. Mexico has an international commitment to generate infrastructure projects and clean technologies for the aeronautics and automotive industries, according to foreign affairs undersecretary Carlos de Icaza González.

  • If the sharp drop in global oil prices seen in recent weeks continues, it's generally agreed that Latin America's primary net exporters Venezuela, Mexico, Brazil and Colombia will be hit hardest. The outlook for Southern Cone nations Chile and Argentina is less dire, but also less clear, according to a report by Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Of all the countries in Latin America, Chile stands to benefit the most from a lower oil price environment, the report said, noting that the country's US$14.4bn negative oil and energy trade balance is the region's largest. "Chile is the clear winner [of lower prices], and Venezuela and Colombia the two losers," the report said. While Chile's energy trade deficit accounted for 5.3% of GDP in 2013, Venezuela and Colombia recorded energy trade surpluses of 19.7% and 6.5% of GDP, respectively. Argentina's deficit runs at about 1% of GDP, the report said, making the implications of lower oil prices for the country far more ambiguous. "Lower energy prices would benefit [Argentina's] external accounts, but would put the high investment expected in [its oil sector] at risk in coming years." While Chile won't become a net energy exporter any time soon, Argentina has made regaining this distinction a national priority. Legislators are reviewing a package of energy reforms meant to restore the country to energy self-sufficiency by attracting foreign hydrocarbon investments. The reforms are largely geared toward attracting interest in the country's non-conventional and offshore resources. Lower prices would most likely have a negative impact on upstream investment in countries like Argentina, Colombia and Brazil, the report said, adding, "Typically, when oil prices fall, companies´ future capex commitments drop. Our LatAm oil analysts believe this is especially true for higher risk projects." Since gasoline prices are fixed throughout much of the region, lower crude prices are only likely to benefit consumers at the pump in Chile and Colombia, the report said. In Chile, BofAML projected a 7.6% drop in gasoline prices by year-end if prices and the Chilean peso stay at current levels. Currently, oil represents 6.4% of Argentina's total exports, the report said, compared to 96.3% and 55.9%, respectively, for Venezuela and Colombia. So what's Argentina to make of all this? In short, lower oil prices will provide relief to the cash-strapped nation as it struggles to sort out its foreign debt troubles. But for a country that has largely staked its future on oil and gas exports, an extended period of oil prices below US$90/b can't be a very inspiring prospect. Granted, it's too early to say how long the bear market will last or what the effects will be. Halliburton CEO David Lesar, for example, predicted a 2015 turnaround for the industry in Latin America. Opec's daily basket price stood at US$82.09/b on October 22. BNamericas will host its 11th Southern Cone Energy Summit in Lima, Peru, on November 12-13. Click here to download the agenda.

  • Rio de Janeiro state has shortlisted two consortiums for the 35.5mn-real (US$15.8mn) consultancy tender to prepare a basic plan to build the No. 4 metro line in time for the 2016 Olympics. Documents from Expande Rio, a five-company group led by Brazil's Setepla Tecnometal; and Expansão RJ, a two-company group led by Sistran Engenharia, are being reviewed, according to minutes from a tender meeting. In all, five groups comprising 21 companies were vying for the contract in August. PROJECT DETAILS The eight-month consultancy involves creating and coordinating the basic plan, carrying out environmental studies and providing assistance for installation licenses, as well as developing an action plan for civil works, the implementation of rolling stock and maintenance works. It also entails reviewing possible public-private partnership models and outlining ways to contract third party services. Rio de Janeiro's No. 4 metro line, already under construction, will be 10km long with seven stations. It is designed to connect to the No. 1 line's Carioca downtown station. Construction is expected to be completed in 1H16.
