Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region in Northwest China produced 119.68 million tonnes of raw coal during January-April, up 29% from the same period of last year, showed the latest data from local statistical bureau.
The region's coal output in April alone rose 27.2% from the year prior to 27.15 million tonnes, data showed. Xinjiang's coal production growth is higher than the nation's average level.
Xinjiang has the estimated coal reserves at 2.2 trillion tonnes, a share of 40% of China's total. Xinjiang has actively made its own efforts to balance the country's energy balance since 2021, when global coal prices surged along with global commodity and energy prices.
CHN Energy's Xinjiang branch is local largest coal distributor, which produced 25.09 million tonnes of coal during January-April, up 6.68 million tonnes from a year ago, while coal sales rose 6.73 million tonnes to 25.46 million tonnes.
The company's coal shipment to areas outside Xinjiang totaled 1.03 million tonnes during the period, hitting the record high.
