ENRON says it is pleased with a December 10 deadline fixed for the end of talks on its on-again, off-again energy project in India's western Maharashtra state. Enron has been losing about US$250,000 each day since work on the 2,015 megawatt plant, India's largest, was stopped in August. An enquiry panel chaired by Deputy Chief Minister Gopinath Munde said the project should be axed because capital costs were too high and it had not been offered for public tender. The talks are proceeding in parallel with arbitration, which began last month in London. The next session of arbitration has been fixed for November 25.
