The National Mine Safety Administration declared that Shandong had 102 coal mines with the production totaling 140.03 Mtpa as of December 31, 2019.
Shandong government planed that province-wide coal production capacity will be controlled below 130 Mtpa by 2022 and the output will be around 100 million tonnes.
It also aims to develop Shandong Energy Group Co. Ltd. and Yankuang Group Co. Ltd., whose production capacity all surpassed 100 Mtpa. By 2022, large-scale miners' coal output will account for above 90% of the province's total.
