SunCoke Energy, Inc. U.S. Coke Production Estimated To Be Nearly 1.1 Million Tons In Third Quarter 2012

SunCoke Energy, Inc. (NYSE: SXC) today reported that third quarter 2012 U.S. coke production is expected to be approximately 1,099 thousand tons, an estimated increase of 135 thousand tons, or 14%, versus the same period in 2011. The estimated year-over-year increase in U.S. coke production in third quarter 2012 was driven by our Middletown facility, partly offset by lower production at our Indiana Harbor facility.

Our total U.S. cokemaking capacity utilization was 103 percent in third quarter 2012, the same utilization rate as in third quarter 2011.
