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.

  • Mexican conglomerate Alfa has increased its interest in Colombia-focused oil producer Pacific Rubiales to 18.95%, the latter said in a statement sent to Colombia's financial regulator Superfinanciera. Alfa has been incrementally upping its interest in Pacific Rubiales this year. In late August the group held a reported 17.1% stake. Takeover rumors have flourished in the wake of Alfa's stock purchases. Under Canadian law, where Pacific Rubiales shares trade, acquiring 20% or more of a company typically triggers an automatic public tender offer. Pacific Rubiales has no knowledge of any sales agreement with Alfa, the release said. Alfa has repeatedly denied intentions to acquire Pacific Rubiales and says its share increases are for investment and not strategic purposes. The group also just announced a capital increase and has said it aims to raise its Pacific Rubiales interest to 20%. For its part Pacific Rubiales has previously stated it is seeking partners for entering Mexico's oil and gas market and last week signed an exploration MOU with Mexican state oil firm Pemex.

  • Peru's patent and consumer protection agency Indecopi ruled against the state environment agency's bid to force mining companies to finance government monitoring. The OEFA agency, which has fined and shut down major mines for pollution this year, lost a legal appeal by five mining companies over the obligatory financing, the Peruvian society for environmental law (SPDA) said. Indecopi ruled the payments by Milpo's Pampa de Cobre unit were a "bureaucratic barrier," the SPDA said in a statement. Gold Fields, Marsa, Glencore's Antapaccay and Perubar units have also filed claims seeking to force the agency to refund money paid by the companies, and are likely to win their lawsuits, SPDA said. The ruling will cut 130mn soles (US$44.8mn) from OEFA's 2015 budget, on top of a finance ministry decision last week to eliminate an estimated 36mn soles in fines from OEFA's budget, SPDA said. OEFA, which will now have less than 25mn soles next year, has one more chance to appeal the ruling, SPDA said. OEFA said in a statement it will appeal the ruling. Environment minister Manuel Pulgar Vidal said last month private financing was necessary to guarantee that environmental monitoring operations could be continued over the long term. The agency has carried out 5,517 inspections of mining, energy, fishing and manufacturing companies over the past six years. Last year, OEFA fined 37 miners, including Canada's Barrick Gold, Pan American Silver and Bear Creek Mining, as well as Peruvian miners Volcan, Mitsui unit Santa Luisa, Minera Condestable and Catalina Huanca, a total of 1.13mn soles for environmental infractions. OEFA earlier this year fined miners, including Glencore and Volcan, for excessive mineral emissions and halted operations in March at Chinalco's recently inaugurated US$3.5bn Toromocho copper mine due to a tailings leak. The sanctions, part of a total of 941 fines since 2008, have been called excessive by the mining society (SNMPE).

  • Chile's airport traffic will more than double by 2030, reaching the level of maturity of markets such as the United States, a public works ministry (MOP) official said at the BNamericas 5th South America Infrastructure Summit. Currently, Chile's passenger per capita ratio stands at 1, the highest in Latin America. However, MOP has forecast it will climb to 2.34 in 2030, the current ratio in the United States. "Our challenge is to serve that [market]. Today, we're at the level of Spain, but in 2030 we will have to serve a demand as intense as the one in the United States," MOP head of airports María Isabel Castillo told the summit in Bogotá. Airport traffic is expected to jump to 70mn in 2050 from the current 17mn. Castillo said airport traffic has soared, in particular in northern Chile, where some of the world's largest copper mines are located. There, traffic has grown 17.4% a year on average over the last 10 years, while in central Chile it grew 9.7% and in the south 8.8%. MOP is tendering a US$633mn concession to expand and operate Santiago's international airport, a project that involves the construction of a 200,000m2 terminal with two wings exclusively for international flights, and two additional wings that will alternate between international and domestic flights. The expanded airport is expected to handle 29mn passengers by 2030 and 50mn by 2045. According to BNamericas statistics, Santiago's passenger traffic grew 8% last year to a record 15.3mn. The government is also planning further investments in southern Concepción and Puerto Montt airports, as well as Iquique in the north.
