Coal's Future in Changing Markets

Coal demand and pricing held up well in the first half of 2019, given competitive pressures. However, markets have disappointed since then, taking their toll especially on domestic producers. Weak pricing so far this winter sets the stage for a turbulent 2020.

Join us as Steve Piper addresses pressing issues in current coal markets, including:

  • Between green energy expansion and gas switching, when will the decarbonization wave crest
  • Can coal break away from the natural gas and crude oil squeeze?
  • Are there regulatory policies in play that could foster coal market growth?
  • What is the likely basin product mix going forward, domestic versus export, and thermal versus metallurgical coal?
