Autopista del Maipo invertirá US$177 mills. en terceras pistas

La concesionaria de la vía que une Santiago con Talca espera agregar un carril por sentido entre Puente Maipo y bypass Rancagua antes del 2020.

Por Julián Mazzucco

Actualmente, mediante un convenio complementario con el Ministerio de Obras Públicas (MOP), la Autopista del Maipo está llevando a cabo una ampliación a tres pistas por sentido entre el acceso sur a Santiago y el puente Peuco, lo que se denomina tramo dos. 

Se trata de una extensión de 7 kilómetros, que demandará una inversión de US$61 millones.

Pero el plan definitivo es mucho más ambicioso. En el mediano plazo se agregarán dos tramos más con terceras pistas y que, según comentó a PULSO el gerente general de la concesionaria, Miguel Carraco, esperan tener aprobados a mediados de año. 

“Son dos tramo más donde se integraran terceras pistas. El tramo uno (desde Puente Maipo hasta Acceso sur a Santiago) tiene una inversión estimada de UF 1,5 millones (más de US$ 63 millones). El tercero, o sea entre la actual plaza de peaje y el bypass Rancagua, tiene una inversión de UF 1,2 millones (US$ 50,5 millones)”, explicó Carrasco. La inversión de las obras que se están realizando sumadas a las que están en proyecto da un total de unos US$177 millones. 

“Los proyectos de los siguientes tramos de terceras pistas van a estar aprobados a mediados de 2014. Por lo tanto, va a depender de la voluntad de la autoridad de lanzar las licitaciones inmediatamente, de manera de que antes del 2020 podríamos tener el tramo completo con terceras pistas desde el Puente Maipo y bypass Rancagua. Esa sería nuestra aspiración”, agregó Carrasco.

  • After a tough year in Latin America, US oil services firm Halliburton expects to see a turnaround in 2015, CEO David Lesar said during a 3Q14 conference call. "Even with better revenue in the third quarter, margins and overall activity levels still do not meet my expectations, due primarily to continued operational delays in Mexico," Lesar said. However, Halliburton is well positioned to growth next year, he added while highlighting operations in Mexico, Brazil and Ecuador. "First, we are up and running on our integrated projects in Mexico and expect to be at full operational capacity in early 2015," Lesar said. "We're also excited about the pace of Mexico energy reform and expect to see strong opportunities in Mexico shale, mature fields and deepwater markets in the coming years." Halliburton is currently negotiating the retender of a directional-drilling contract with Brazil state oil firm Petrobras and expects to be operating under a new more profitable contract during the transition to 1Q15. "And last but not least, we're very excited about our recent multi-billion dollar award in Ecuador where we expect strong growth as these projects ramp up next year. So for Latin America I expect a much stronger 2015 and we're well positioned for tremendous growth potential in the coming years," the CEO said. Looking globally, Lesar said the recent drop in international oil prices would be short term. "Considering North America and OPEC production expectations, the continued tightness in global spare production capacity and potential geopolitical impacts on non-OPEC production, we believe that supply and demand will essentially be back in balance in a relatively short period of time." THIRD QUARTER RESULTS Halliburton posted attributable net income of US$1.203bn in 3Q14, up from US$706mn in the same quarter last year. Revenue rose to US$8.701bn from US$7.472bn and consisted of US$5.42bn in completion and production revenue and US$3.281bn in drilling and evaluation revenue, according to the firm's third quarter unaudited financial report. In the same period Halliburton's Latin America revenue totaled US$1.045bn, up from US$1.002bn, and consisted of US$435mn of completion and drilling revenue and US$610mn of drilling and evaluation revenue. "Mexico was the primary driver where we saw the benefit of higher activity on our Humapa project and recent contract approvals, which resulted in an increase in consulting and software revenue for the quarter," CFO Mark McCollum said. McCollum expects Halliburton to see single digit sequential growth in its Latin America revenue in the next quarter. "This improvement is expected to result from year-end software and product sales as well as the continued ramp up of our IPM and asset management projects in Mexico," he added.

  • NASA will use its satellites to monitor irrigation water supplies in Chile's northern Atacama region. As part of an agreement between NASA and Chile's agriculture ministry, the US agency will survey accumulated snow in the Andes range, the main source of irrigation water in Atacama. NASA satellites TERRA and AQUA will measure, on a daily basis, snow levels in the area. "We aim to complement our work with the world's best technology and bring it to Chile, allowing us to plan the use of the best and most efficient irrigation technology in the future," Chile's national resources information center (Ciren) head, Juan Pablo López, said in a statement. Atacama is one of Chile's driest regions, where water demand outstrips supply sometimes by as much as 10 times. The country is in the grip of a severe drought that has depleted reservoirs and forced the government to make water scarcity relief efforts in dozens of towns across the country. Two weeks ago, President Michelle Bachelet proposed amendments to the nation's water code in order to make human consumption and sanitation a priority. The proposed reform would make it possible to temporarily limit water rights under special circumstances, such as during times of drought.
