He said the ship's next movements would depend on "several legal and procedural" measures that the canal authority would discuss with Ever Given's operator.
A fleet of tugboats and a dredger successfully freed the ship on March 29, almost a week after it first got stuck.
The Ever Given, a so-called "megaship", was en route from China to the Netherlands when it became lodged sideways across the canal, blocking one of the world's most critical trade routes.
Rabie said the ship will not leave Egypt before the end of the investigation, unless the company that owns the ship signs an agreement to pay the compensation.
Osama Rabie, chairman of the Suez Canal Authority (SCA), said 85 ships were expected to pass the canal from both sides on Saturday.
When blame gets assigned, it will likely lead to years of litigation to recoup the costs of repairing the ship, fixing the canal and reimbursing those who had their cargo shipments disrupted. The owner of the vessel is Japanese company Shoei Kisen Kaisha.
The waterway is a crucial economic lifeline for Egypt, which poured resources into unblocking the ship.
Earlier, Leth Agencies said that a total of 357 vessels have crossed the Canal since the ship was re-floated by a flotilla of tugboats, helped by the tides. The tugs then guided the Ever Given through the water after days of unsuccessful attempts to dislodge the colossus that had captivated the world, drawing scrutiny and social media ridicule. Others waited in place for the blockage to be over.
The unprecedented shutdown, which raised fears of extended delays, goods shortages and rising costs for consumers, added to strain on the shipping industry, already under pressure from the coronavirus pandemic.
After days of rapt attention from the internet in the form of memes and jokes, stranded ship "Ever Given" has finally been freed, thanks to the congregation of tugboats and dredgers that freed the cargo ship from Egypt's coast.
The sources said that specialist equipment and associated procedures have long struggled to keep up with the ever-increasing size of commercial vessels.
Michael Kingston, an worldwide shipping specialist and an adviser to the United Nation's global Maritime Organization, flagged such problems in 2013, three years before the MSC Fabiola container ship ran aground, also blocking traffic for days.
"The obvious way to lighten a vessel.is to take the containers off".
