GRUPO CLARIN: Government Shuts Down Fibertel Internet Service
-------------------------------------------------------------
Eliana Raszewski at Bloomberg News reports that the Argentine
government has shut down the Internet service provided by Grupo
Clarin SA's Fibertel unit, saying the company's merger with
Cablevision SA was illegal.  The report relates that the
government's move is the latest in a fight between Grupo Clarin
and President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, which said that the
company is biased in its coverage of the government.

"Fibertel doesn't exist anymore because of its own decision," the
report quoted Planning Minister Julio De Vido as saying.  "They
announced a merger that was never approved," he added.  The report
relates Mr. de Vido Fibertel said that customers are free to find
other service providers and the company will cease operations
within 90 days.

The government's decision is "illegal and arbitrary," and
Cablevision will pursue all legal actions to continue with
Fibertel's Internet service, the company said in an e-mailed
statement obtained by the news agency.

Bloomberg says that about 63% of Grupo Clarin's ARS$1.87 billion
(US$470 million) in sales in the second quarter came from its
cable and Internet services.  The report relates that Fibertel has
about 1 million clients.

DIGICEL GROUP: Fails to Get FTC Review on LIME Rates in Barbados
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Fair Trading Commission in Barbados has denied Digicel Group's
application to review an earlier decision on rates charged by
Cable and Wireless, which trades as LIME, to other telecoms
companies to use its network, Jamaica Observer reports.  The
report relates that in a recent decision, the FTC said Digicel
Group failed to demonstrate any need to review its February 22
ruling as the company "has not properly supported a modification
of the Commission's decision."

According to the report, on March 6, 2010, Digicel had filed a
Notice of Motion for Review, contending that the regulator
breached the rules of natural justice in that it was under duty to
act judiciously, but did not do so.  The report relates FTC said
arguments put forward by the mobile phone service provider "were
at some points inconsistent and seemingly contradictory with
respect to the nature and extent of the Commission's process and
Digicel's involvement."

"Cable and Wireless subsequently proposed that in the absence of a
Long Run Incremental Cost (LRIC) study and until this exercise is
completed it would reduce domestic interconnection tariffs for
Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) Termination Access
Service, Public Land Mobile Network Termination Access Service and
PSTN Transit Service by five per cent . . ." FTC said, the report
notes.   "Based on the foregoing and on the reasons expressed in
the decision, the Commission finds that Digicel in its motion for
review and written submissions, has not demonstrated that errors
of fact or law or any other grounds for review exist," FTC added.

TERMOCANDELARIA SCA: Fitch Upgrades Issuer Default Rating to 'BB'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has upgraded Termocandelaria S.C.A. E.S.P.'s foreign
and local currency Issuer Default Ratings to 'BB' from 'BB-'.  The
rating action applies to approximately US$76 million of
outstanding senior secured notes issued by Termocandelaria Power
Ltd.  The Rating Outlook is Stable.

The rating upgrade reflects the company's improving credit metrics
resulting from stable cash flow generation and modest reductions
in debt and financial leverage.  The company somewhat benefited
during the recent drought due to higher sales volume.  Going
forward, Termocandelaria EBITDA generation is expected to moderate
and reflect the stability of the company's capacity payments.
During the last 12 months ended June 30, 2010, the company
reported an EBITDA generation of approximately US$41.3 million and
total debt of US$76.5 million, which translated into a modest
leverage of 1.9 times as of June 30, 2010.  The rating action also
reflects the company's recent operating performance characterized
by high capacity utilization.  The plant performed well when it
was called to dispatch electricity due to low availability of
hydroelectric plants as a result of droughts in the country.

Stable Cash Generation Supported by Reliability Payments:

Termocandelaria's ratings reflect the company's stable and
predictable cash flow stream generated by fixed capacity payments,
or reliability charges received from the Colombian electric
system; Termocandelaria is a merchant power generator with no
specific power purchase agreements in place and is primarily used
as a back-up provider of power to the electric system.  In 2006,
Colombia revised its regulatory framework, establishing a new
firm-capacity compensation scheme for Colombian generation
companies.  The new regulation favorably affected Termocandelaria
and increased the reliability charges it receives to approximately
US$35 million-US$40 million annually from approximately US$16
million-US$18 million annually prior to the regulatory change.
These reliability charges are dollar-linked and are to exist for a
five-year period ending November 2012, and will be adjusted
thereafter to reflect current market prices based on future energy
auctions, subject to a cap and floor until 2015.  The first energy
auction that took place in 2008 modestly increased the 2013
reliability payment to approximately US$14 per MWh-year from the
current rate of US$13 MWh-year established in 2006.

Competitive Electricity Generation Market:

Termocandelaria operates in a highly competitive electricity
market dominated by low-cost, hydro-based generation companies.
The company operates primarily as a back-up generator as
Termocandelaria's marginal cost is significantly higher than that
of its peers.  New capacity is not expected to be needed until at
least 2013 since overall generation capacity is expected to be
sufficient to meet Colombia's electricity demand for the next few
years.  The company may participate in future generation auctions
and increase its installed capacity by converting its plant from a
single-cycle to a combined-cycle configuration.  Successful
auction bids will receive long-term fixed capacity payments after
2013.  The addition of new capacity would likely increase
Termocandelaria's leverage and possibly have a negative effect on
the company's credit quality.

The rating incorporates moderate regulatory risk.  Possible
regulatory changes relate to fuel storage and distribution for the
operation of thermo electric plants.  This could negatively impact
thermoelectric generation companies in Colombia in general but the
outcome remains uncertain at this time.  The company's ability to
generate electricity on short notice bodes well for its business
risk given that this proves the company's reliability and
mitigates political interference risk, which could result from
poor operating performance.

Solid Credit Metrics:

The company's credit metrics are in line with the assigned rating
and have significantly improved after the 2007 debt restructuring,
which reduced debt to one-third of the outstanding amount.  For
the LTM ended June 30, 2010 and as of year-end 2009, financial
leverage was adequate at approximately 1.9x and 2.8x total debt to
EBITDA, respectively.  Interest coverage of 6.8x and 2.9x for LTM
June 2010 and year end 2009 is considered healthy.  The existing
notes benefit from a solid trust structure and are secured by most
of the company's assets.  The company operates with low levels of
cash on hand and approximately US$10 million of credit lines
available.  During recent months the company's liquidity was
bolstered by readily available access to credit markets.
Termocandelaria intents to maintain low levels of on-balance sheet
cash, which exposes the company to liquidity risk associated with
future working capital needs; this risk is considered low.

During the 12 months ended June 2010, the company's financial
performance was positively impacted by droughts in Colombia.
Going forward, Termocandelaria cash flow generation is expected to
moderate and reflect revenues generated by reliability payments
while the company returns to its back-up mode with only marginal
electricity generation.  During the LTM ended June 30, 2010, the
company reported an EBITDA of approximately US$41.3 million, up
from US$32.7 million as of year end 2009.  Total debt of
approximately US$76.5 million consists mostly of senior secured
debt due 2016.  The covenant package includes limitations on the
sale of assets, among other things.  Increases in debt and
dividend distributions are restricted if the company's net
leverage exceeds 3.05x.

PETROECUADOR: To Supply Oil to PetroChina Under US$1BB Loan Deal
----------------------------------------------------------------
Ecuador Vice Financial Minister Maria Dolores Almeida said that
Ecuador has completed loan talks with China and that both nations
are expected to sign a US$1 billion agreement by the end of this
month, China Knowledge reports, citing unnamed sources.

According to the report, in June, Ms. Almeida entered negotiations
with China Development Bank in Beijing and both parties signed an
agreement.  Pursuant to the agreement, the report relates, China
will offer Ecuador US$1 billion in loan in exchange for oil.

Petroecuador will supply 36,000 barrels of oil or fuel per day to
PetroChina International Co., a subsidiary of PetroChina Co. Ltd.,
the report notes.

                        About Petroecuador

Headquartered in Quito, Ecuador, Petroecuador --

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
December 28, 2009, Dow Jones Newswires said that Ecuadorian
President Rafael Correa authorized naval forces to extend its
control of Petroecuador until March as more time was needed for an
orderly handover of the company to a new management structure. The
report recalled that Petroecuador was declared in a state of
emergency two years ago, and the navy has been put in charge of
its restructuring.

PETROLEUM CORPORATION: Don Wehby Turns Down Offer to Head Firm
--------------------------------------------------------------
GraceKennedy Chief Operating Officer Don Wehby has turned down an
offer to become the new chairman of the Petroleum Corporation of
Jamaica because he felt that, with his primary focus on his
functions at GraceKennedy, he would not have enough time to devote
to a chairmanship role with the PCJ, Jamaica Observer reports.

According to the report, PCJ has been one of the most scrutinized
public agencies over the last few years and has been without a
chairman since Kathryn Phipps left her post.

As reported in the Troubled Company on May 21, 2010, RadioJamaica
said that auditors found a raft of irregularities in the financial
operations of the PCJ, with millions of dollars paid out under
questionable circumstances.  The report related that the audit
reportedly revealed a lax system which allowed money to be paid
out without following basic accounting or government guidelines.
Dr. Ruth Potopsingh, Managing Director of the PCJ, was eventually
sacked by the PCJ board, the report said.

                    About Petroleum Corporation

Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica is a petroleum company owned by
the government of Jamaica.  It was established in 1975 as State
Energy Corporation under the Ministry of Mining and Energy and
changed its name in 1979 by the Petroleum Act.  The PCJ has the
exclusive right to explore for oil in Jamaica.

* MEXICO: Moody's Reviews Ba2 Rating on City Airport Trust's Bonds
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service placed the Mexico City Airport Trust's
(Fumisa) Ba2 rating on review for possible downgrade, affecting US
$ 76.3 million and 76.5 million UDI (equivalent to $26.3 million
US) lease receivable bonds.

The review is prompted by the uncertainty surrounding the effect
on the medium term revenue stream of Fumisa brought about by the
August 3, 2010 bankruptcy filing of Mexicana Airlines.  During the
first half of 2010, Mexicana Airlines comprised 32% of the
international passenger traffic through Terminal 1 of the Mexico
City International Airport (AICM for its acronym in Spanish).

Fumisa receives its revenues from the lease of commercial space in
Terminal 1 of the Mexico City International Airport primarily to
commercial vendors, with a more modest portion stemming from
counter space and other terminal space leased to airlines.  While
airport passenger traffic is not the driver of revenue for the
payment of the lease revenue bonds, it is an important indicator
of the flow of passengers that makes the Terminal 1 an attractive
location for duty free and other concessionaires.  A major
disruption in the number of passengers coming through the terminal
will likely hinder the ability of the commercial vendors to make
lease payments over the medium term and could compromise the
project's ability to meet debt service from the project cash flows
at levels that are consistent with the current rating.

For the quarter ending August 2010, Fumisa had projected a debt
service coverage ratio of 1.25x and given that the majority of
those revenues have already been collected it is likely that the
company will hit its target.  However, going forward, revenues
could be lower and a DSCR below 1.15x could result in an early
amortization of the bonds.  The sponsor, Advent International, is
able to support the project through an equity injection in the
Coverage Reserve Account, to bring DSCR over 1.15x.  This remedy
is only allowed three times in the life of the debt, with one
already used during 2009.  The support through the CRA must also
fall 12 months apart, which would allow the use of the CRA by
November of this year, and the need for support beyond that point
depends on the outcome of Mexicana's situation.

The review of the credit over the next three months will focus on
the maintenance and/or recovery of Mexicana's flights in and out
of AICM Terminal 1, by it or other carriers, and the ensuing
effects on passenger traffic and most importantly on Fumisa's
revenues.  Additionally, Moody's will review the project's
liquidity position which at present is strengthened by cash
trapped in the trigger reserve account, and that held for lease
prepayment and tenant security accounts.  The project structure
benefits from a 6 month debt service reserve account.  The notes
amortize fully through December 2013.

The last rating action on the Mexico City Airport Trust was on
February 16, 2010 when the Ba2 rating was confirmed with a stable
outlook.

The lease receivable bond ratings were assigned by evaluating
factors believed to be relevant to the credit profile of the
Project such as i) the business risk and competitive position of
the project versus others within its industry or sector, ii) the
capital structure and financial risk of the project, iii) the
projected performance of the project over the near to intermediate
term, and iv) the project's history of achieving consistent
operating performance and meeting budget or financial plan goals.
These attributes were compared against other projects both within
and outside of the Airport's core peer group and the lease
receivable bond ratings are believed to be comparable to ratings
assigned to other projects of similar credit risk.

Monday's edition of the TCR-LA delivers a list of indicative
prices for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.
Prices are obtained by TCR-LA editors from a variety of outside
sources during the prior week we think are reliable.   Those
sources may not, however, be complete or accurate.  The Monday
Bond Pricing table is compiled on the Friday prior to
publication.  Prices reported are not intended to reflect actual
trades.  Prices for actual trades are probably different.  Our
objective is to share information, not make markets in publicly
traded securities.  Nothing in the TCR-LA constitutes an offer
or solicitation to buy or sell any security of any kind.  It is
likely that some entity affiliated with a TCR-LA editor holds
some position in the issuers' public debt and equity securities
about which we report.

Tuesday's edition of the TCR-LA features a list of companies
with insolvent balance sheets obtained by our editors based on
the latest balance sheets publicly available a day prior to
publication.  At first glance, this list may look like the
definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell short.
Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at historical
cost net of depreciation may understate the true value of a
firm's assets.  A company may establish reserves on its balance
sheet for liabilities that may never materialize.  The prices at
which equity securities trade in public market are determined by
more than a balance sheet solvency test.

A list of Meetings, Conferences and Seminars appears in each
Thursday's edition of the TCR-LA. Submissions about insolvency-
related conferences are encouraged.  Send announcements to
