DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ms4tv6/coal_mining_in) has announced the addition of the “Coal Mining in Indonesia to 2020” report to their offering.
The ‘Coal Mining in Indonesia to 2020’ report provides historical and forecast data on coal production by grade, reserves, consumption by type and trade by type to 2020. The trade section provides information on export volumes to destination countries, as well as imports. The report also includes drivers and restraints affecting the industry, profiles of major coal mining companies, information on the major active, planned and exploration projects and regulations governing the industry. The report provides a comprehensive coverage of Indonesia’s coal mining industry.
Indonesia is a leading global producer and exporter of steam coal, with production estimated at 421 million tons (Mt) in 2013 and projected to reach 503.8Mt in 2020, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.5%. Substantial production over the forecast period 2014-2020, will be the result of both capacity expansions and the commencement of new projects.
The islands of Kalimantan and Sumatra dominate Indonesia’s coal production and steam coal accounted for all the coal produced in the country, with the largest coal mines being the Sangatta, Paser and Batuah Village mines in East Kalimantan, and the Alam Duta Kalimantan mine in South Kalimantan.
The report contains an overview of the Indonesian coal mining industry, together with its key growth factors and restraints. It also provides detailed information about production, prices, production by grade, basin and mining methods, reserves, reserves by grade and regions, major producing mines, competitive landscape, major exploration and development projects, consumption, consumption by type and trade. Also included is the country’s fiscal regime, which includes governing bodies and relevant laws, rights and obligations of the mining companies, as well as key fiscal terms.
– Coal deposits are scattered across 11 distinct basins on the four major areas of the archipelago that makes up Indonesia. The deposits are widely distributed across Sumatra, Kalimantan, West Java and Sulawesi.
– The major export markets for Indonesian coal in 2013 were India, China, South Korea and Japan. Steam coal exports are expected to grow over the forecast period with rising demand from India and China.
– A competitive advantage for Indonesian coal miners is its low cost of production compared to the global average. As a result, many coal mining companies in Indonesia are continuing to increase production despite weak coal prices.
– Indonesian coal deposits have low to medium calorific value, with high moisture and low ash content. The main advantage of Indonesian coal is its low sulphur content, which makes it one of the cleanest coals available in the world.
