    Production, sales and stocks at China's major coal and coke firms over Jul 4-Jul 10

    sxcoal.com Price,  Production & Sales 2019-07-16 11:05:31

    Thermal Coal

    Output The average operating rate of thermal coal mines surveyed by Fenwei in Shanxi, Shaanxi and Inner Mongolia, three leading coal production bases in China, rose 1.16 percentage points week on week in the week to July 10.

    Thermal coal production was generally stable at surveyed mines. Local departments of Shaanxi and Inner Mongolia still put a lid on coal production and sales, which means that mines should not arrange production or sales beyond approved capacity.

    Yet recent intermittent environmental checks haven't exerted much impact on coal mine operations.

    Stocks As of July 10, thermal coal stocks at surveyed mines in Shanxi, Shaanxi and Inner Mongolia fell 4.8% from a week ago but remained at a relatively high level. By shifting sales strategy, some miners embraced buoyant sales for some high-quality coal grades, leading to declines in coal stocks.

    Profit Surveyed thermal coal mines reported a 0.62% week-on-week pickup of profit during July 3-July 10. The average profit for 4,500 Kcal/kg and 5,000 Kcal/kg NAR coal stood at 87.7 yuan/t and 130.4 yuan/t respectively in the period.

    Coking Coal

    Output Surveyed coking coal mines in China registered a modest 0.07-percentage-point decline in average operating rate in the week ending July 10 compared with the previous week, as mounting inventory pressure prompted some mines to cut production.

    Stocks at mines On July 10, inventories of raw and washed coking coal at surveyed mines decreased 2.21% and 4.13% week on week respectively to low-to-medium levels, a reflection of easing stocks pressure.

    Stocks at coking plants Days of use of coking coal stocks at coking plants surveyed by Fenwei edged up 1.57% week on week on July 10, the first increase after falling for three straight weeks, as some coke producers started replenishing coking coal inventories.


    Output Overall operating rate at surveyed coking plants remained relatively high, despite intermittent production cuts at several plants in Shanxi incompliant with environmental policies. Coke output hasn't posted a notable decrease though a 100-day campaign to rein in pollution goes on in Shanxi.

    Profit China's coke sector was still in slight profit, though average profit of surveyed coke plants fell 12.9% on a weekly basis during July 4-10.

    Stocks at coking plants Coke inventories at surveyed coking plants dipped 1.3% from a week ago to a comparatively low level on July 10, as traders ramped up purchases in main production bases.

    Stocks at steel mills Fenwei survey showed major Chinese steel mills staged a 1.3% week-on-week increase in coke stockpiles as of July 10, standing high, though coke arrivals dropped marginally due to growing procurement by traders.
