Indonesia's coal output reached 557.54 million tonnes in 2020, higher than the annual target of 550 million tonnes set at the beginning of the year, but 9.5% lower than the 2019's level, preliminary data showed from the country's Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources.
Domestic coal sales through Domestic Market Obligation (DMO) totaled 108.45 million tonnes last year, 30.03% lower than its annual target and 28.3% lower than its sales in 2019, the data showed.
Data also showed Indonesia exported 305.77 million tonnes in 2020, slightly lower than its annual goal of 395 million tonnes, and 22.58% lower than a year ago.
However, data from Indonesia's statistics bureau showed the country's coal exports in the first ten months totaled 329 million tonnes, which has exceeded the whole year's volume covered by the preliminary data by Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources.
Coal exports in November and December bounced back dramatically after China eased its restrictions on coal imports and made a big purchase. It's expected that its coal exports could still exceed 400 million tonnes in 2020 as per final statistics, which is about 15% lower than the previous year.
