    Production, sales and stocks at China's major coal and coke firms over Jul 11-17

    sxcoal.com Production & Sales 2019-07-23 17:47:40

    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, fell 3.2 percentage points week on week in the week to July 17. Yet the overall thermal coal production at mines hovered at mid-to-high levels.

    Most mines in main production bases arranged thermal coal production in line with approved capacity. Production decreased in Shanxi and Inner Mongolia as some mines trimmed or halted operations for workface shift or environmental clampdowns.

    Stocks As of July 17, thermal coal stocks at surveyed mines rose 1.7% from a week ago and stayed at a relatively high level, especially at those mines in Shaanxi. Thermal coal sales remained stagnant at mines as traders scaled back on purchase for reshipment to northern ports in a loss-making condition.

    Profit Surveyed thermal coal mines reported a 1.2% week-on-week slide in profit during July 11-July 17. The average profit for 4,500 Kcal/kg and 5,000 Kcal/kg NAR coal stood at 87.5 yuan/t and 130.5 yuan/t respectively in the period, based on mine-mouth price.

    Coking Coal

    Output Surveyed coking coal mines in China registered a 0.35-percentage-point increase in average operating rate in the week ending July 17 compared with the previous week, as some mines subject to production curbs previously raised operating rate after inventory pressure eased.

    Stocks at mines On July 17, inventories of raw coking coal at surveyed mines decreased 1.01% week on week, while that of washed coking coal rose 7.42%.

    Coking coal stocks at mines in Shandong rose notably due to weak procurement from downstream coke plants, while that in other regions decreased mildly.

    Stocks at coking plants Days of use of coking coal stocks at coking plants surveyed by Fenwei edged down 0.13% week on week on July 17. Coke producers ramped up restocking of high-quality primary coking coal by small volumes, but just took blending coking coals on a need-to basis.


    Output Overall operating rate at surveyed coking plants kept stable at a high level during July 11-17 compared with the preceding week, which was 4 percentage points higher than a year ago, as most coke firms in Shanxi continued improving environmental protection facilities.

    Profit China's coke sector was still in slight profit, and average profit of surveyed coke plants rose 3% week on week during July 11-17.

    Stocks at coking plants Coke inventories at surveyed coking plants slumped 13.8% from a week ago to a comparatively low level on July 17, falling for the second straight week. Some coke firms even reported no stocks.

    Stocks at steel mills Fenwei survey showed major Chinese steel mills staged a 1% week-on-week decrease in coke stockpiles as of July 17, which however remained comparatively high. Coke arrivals at steel mills fell modestly as coke sales to traders increased and coke delivery was constrained for southern mills.
