Fenwei monitors representative coal mines and coking plants (66 thermal coal mines at 400 Mtpa, 53 coking coal mines at 301 Mtpa,
and 60 coking plants at 110 Mtpa) in major production areas of Shanxi, Shanxi, Inner Mongolia, Hebei and Shandong.
In-depth communication with production and sales staff allows us to create weekly/half-month reports on price,
operating rate,inventory, production cost and sales of each sample mine/plant. We thus can make
quantitative research on the production, sales and inventory of Chinese coal and coke producers.
A close look into production, sales and stock at mines and production bases
High correlation with coal and coke price changes
Better continuity, collected and recorded directly by Fenwei Price Center
A true and effective reflection of the market, backed with detailed data on each coal mine
High research value, each data set traces back to one year and more
Thermal coal samples currently include 21 mines in Shanxi with capacity at 110 Mtpa, 19 mines in Shaanxi at 110 Mtpa, 26 mines in Inner Mongolia at 180 Mtpa. A total of 66 coal mines are chosen in the three regions, with capacity combined at 400 Mtpa. In terms of ownership, 30 mines are state-owned, 18 local state-owned and 18 private.Selection Principle
We decide the number of sample mines in each province based on their production.
Priority is given to those mines that sell coal at northern ports.
Most of the mines are large state-owned mines, supplemented by local and private mines.
Under the same ownership, large mines will be given priority, while rational distribution of calorific value is considered for mines of the same capacity.
Mines of the same capacity and ownership will be chosen to substitute those that need undergo bankruptcy regrouping. In this case, subscribers will be informed timely.
Coking coal samples currently include 43 coal mines in Shanxi with total capacity at 185.35 Mtpa (Luliang, 19; Linfen, 10; Changzhi, 7; other, 17), two in Hebei at 30 Mtpa, eight in Shandong at 85.5 Mtpa. A total of 53 mines are selected, with capacity combined at 300.85 Mtpa. In terms of ownership, 32 mines are private, 17 state-owned and 4 local state-owned.Selection Principle
We decide the number of sample mines in each province based on its production. Priority is given to private mines with higher degree of marketization, supplemented by state-owned or local mines. Due attention is also paid to the type of coking coal produced in deciding the number of coal mines. Mines of same capacity and ownership will be chosen to substitute those mines that need undergo bankruptcy and regrouping. In this case, subscribers will be informed timely.
Coke plants monitored currently include 29 plants in Shanxi with capacity at 45.41 Mtpa, eight in Hebei at 23.75 Mtpa, eight in Shandong at9.2 Mtpa, six in Inner Mongolia at 9.6 Mtpa, and another nine in other regions with capacity of 25.8 Mtpa. In total, 60 coking plants are selected, with capacity combined at 115.6 Mtpa. In terms of ownership, 51 plants are private and nine are state owned.Selection Principle
•We decide the number of sample plants in each province based on its production. Most of the plants are private ones with higher degree of marketization, supplemented by state-owned plants; a few plants in non-major production provinces are also considered. Coking plants of the same capacity and ownership will be chosen to substitute those that need undergo bankruptcy regrouping. In this case, subscribers will be informed timely.
