Panama Canal Teams Negotiate Cost Overrun Dispute

El Informe Panama offers US$283m fund to end canal spat

The deal would require the contractor to ship four gatesbuilt in Italy and due in Panama last Novemberfor the massive new canal locks. GUPC won the design-build contract for the locks work in 2009. The canal expansion is 72% complete, with the locks at 65%, says the authority. The estimated completion date is June 2015. The consortium's $3.12-billion bid, the only one below the ACP's allocated $3.48-billion cost, bested the next-lowest bid by the Bechtel-Taisei Mitsubishi team by more than $1 billion. There was some media speculation on whether the authority was in contact with the Bechtel team about stepping in to complete work if the current parties cannot reach agreement, but officials declined comment. According to ACP, the GUPC team has filed a total of 13 claims, valued at about $1.4 billion. <br>More:

Panama Canal operators to meet consortium in bid to end cost dispute

If the parties fail to reach an agreement, the project could potentially be offered up to other companies. The Panama Canal Authority rejects the this one consortium's overrun arguments, and called for arbitration. Quijano told Spanish paper El Pais that a third party could finish the project. Spain's ambassador to Panama said Monday that his country's government would not help provide any financing. Sacyr won the canal contract in 2009 with an offer that was considerably lower than that of at least one rival, as well as below the $3.48 billion reference set by the canal authority. U.S. diplomatic cables published by Wikileaks show Martinelli's government was worried about progress before six months had passed. <br>More:

engineering company which lost out to Sacyr when the project was awarded in 2009, had been tipped by some analysts as a likely beneficiary of the dispute. Quijano said the third party was not Bechtel, but did not elaborate on which other companies could step up. "We are not going to have another contract like we have with GUPC right now. We'll have another contractor that works directly for us to administer the rest of the contractors and people," he said of the contingency plan. The project was originally expected to cost about $5.25 billion, but the overruns could raise it to near $7 billion. <br>More:

As are the implications and consequences of a possible shutdown of the project and the works. The construction group on Dec. 31 threatened to suspend work on the $5.25 billion expansion project within 21 days if its demands werent met. The companies are due to build locks on both sides of the 80-kilometer (50-mile) waterway, shortening voyages from the U.S. to Asia and potentially reducing transport costs for commodities such as liquefied natural gas.

Panama Canal, consortium haggle to keep expansion going

The Panama Canal Authority and the consortium both presented proposals on Tuesday to finance further construction, but it was unclear how close they were to making an agreement. While they are disputing who should pay for the overruns, both have agreed to put up at least $100 million each to keep the project running. The canal authority proposed that it and the consortium would each put up $100 million, while the canal would give the group more time to repay $83 million that was advanced to them, or a total of $283 million in joint financing. The canal is also asking the group to process its $1.6 billion claim separately through arbitration panels. The building consortium GUPC responded by saying it would put up $100 million but that the canal administrator would need to contribute $400 million. The canal authority had no immediate comment on the consortium's offer, which also calls on the canal authority to extend a moratorium on the repayment of a $784 million cash advance already paid out until arbitration ends. Work on the expansion, which will create a new lane of traffic along the canal and double the waterway's capacity, began in 2007, and the project is 72 percent complete, according to the Panama Canal Authority's website. <br>More:

The authority's proposal "does not mean that everything is resolved," Quijano said, adding that the GUPC will study the offer but that officials want to find a long-term solution. The two parties may meet again later Tuesday or in the next few days. "We have to wait and see how they respond," he said. "We can't wait too long." The negotiations began after Spanish Public Works Minister Ana Pastor held separate meetings on Monday with Panamanian President Ricardo Martinelli, company executives and canal officials. The GUPC, which includes Impreglio of Italy, Belgium's Jan de Nul and Constructora Urbana of Panama, agreed to negotiate with the canal authority within the contract. The already delayed project aims to make the 80-kilometer (50-mile) waterway, which handles five percent of global maritime trade, big enough to handle new, giant cargo ships that can carry 12,000 containers. GUPC has a US$3.2 billion contract to build a third set of locks for the century-old canal, which currently welcomes ships that carry up to 5,000 containers. <br>More:

Panama Canal: Not possible to meet consortium's latest payment demands

The administrator told lawmakers that the proposal presented on Tuesday in Panama by the GUPC also was unsuitable since it asks the ACP to advance $400 million, as the TVN television network reported on its Web page. "The proposal by the GUPC is impossible ... The GUPC has the technical ability to finish this project ... (and) there is no negotiation outside the contract, at least under our administration," said Quijano, according to the Web page of the Panama America newspaper. "The ACP could take control of the project given the inability of the GUPC to continue see here the expansion," Quijano told lawmakers, according to the Panamanian David paper. The consortium, which in 2009 obtained a $3.12 billion contract to construct a third set of locks, the centerpiece of the canal expansion, said last Wednesday that it would suspend work in three weeks if the ACP did not agree to pay an additional $1.6 billion to cover cost overruns. <br>More:

The club, opening its annual convention in Dallas on Thursday, expects the permit to bring $250,000 to $1 million. The hunt will help in managing the population and provide an underfunded Namibian government hard cash in the expensive battle to thwart poachers, it said. "The whole purpose of the auction is to raise as much money as possible to ensure that the black rhino population continues to grow," club executive director Ben Carter said. "These bulls no longer contribute to the growth of the population and are in a lot of ways detrimental to the growth of the population because black rhinos are very aggressive and territorial. In many cases, they will kill younger, non-breeding bulls and have been known to kill calves and cows." There are about 25,000 rhinos in Africa - 20,000 white rhinos and 5,000 black rhinos - with the majority in South Africa. Namibia is one of the leading habitats after that. Both countries allow for a handful of regulated rhino hunts each year with proceeds going to fund conservation. <br>Read more:
