Low Calorific Value Coal Demand Increases, Argus Study Reveals

SINGAPORE, Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Demand for low calorific value (low CV) coal, which is of lower quality than coal with higher energy content, is increasing in the price-sensitive key markets of India and China, according to a research study published by global energy and commodity reporting agency Argus.

This exclusive study, "Low Calorific Value Thermal Coal Markets", provides a detailed assessment of the global low CV coal market with a specific focus on Asia-Pacific, where most internationally traded supply originates. The study discusses long-term drivers for global thermal coal trade, as well as logistics in Indonesia.

In China, logistical bottlenecks restrict the flow of coal from producing provinces in the north to the major consuming provinces in the south. Imports at southern ports are used to alleviate supply deficits during periods of high demand.

Coal consumers in India face operational challenges that threaten their profitability. Power generators, which are the main consumers, are faced with multiple problems including poor coal quality, low fixed electricity tariffs and supply shortages, and are looking to imports, particularly from Indonesian low CV producers, to address these issues.

"This study, which includes a 5-7 year outlook for pricing of low CV coal, based on our market intelligence, builds on the expertise in coal that Argus has developed over many years. The high-quality research and analysis conducted by Argus Consulting Services provides key insights into the trends that are already shaping the future of Asia's coal market," Argus Media chairman and chief executive Adrian Binks said.
