08:21 EDTWLT, ANR, BTU, CNX, ACI, CLD, ARLPWhile Appalachian mines close, U.S. ramps up coal imports, WSJ says
Coal imports surged 44% to 5.4M metric tons during the first six months of this year compared with last, despite coal mines closing throughout the Appalachia region, reported The Wall Street Journal, which noted that IHS Energy said it costs $26 a ton to ship coal from Central Appalachia to Florida but only $15 a ton to get coal from a mine in Colombia. Imports supply just 1% of U.S. coal consumption, but the imports, especially from Colombia, "are a factor" in mine closings, the report added. Publicly traded coal companies include Alpha Natural (ANR), Arch Coal (ACI), CONSOL (CNX), Cloud Peak (CLD), Peabody (BTU), Alliance Resource Partners (ARLP), and Walter Energy (WLT). Reference Link

13:01 EDTANRAlpha Natural affiliates to downsize central Appalachian mining operations
Operating affiliates of Alpha Natural have notified employees of the expected idling of the mining and processing operations where they work. In accordance with requirements of the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, notices were given today to 439 employees at Rockspring Development's Camp Creek Underground Mine and Processing Plant in Wayne County, West Virginia, regarding the expected idling of those facilities based on the mine operator's current assessment of market conditions. Additionally, three other Alpha-affiliated mine operators announced last week that reductions in force were taking place at their locations due to sustained weak market conditions and government regulations that have challenged the entire Central Appalachian coal industry. A total of 71 employees were impacted. These actions are being triggered by persistent weakness in U.S. and overseas coal demand and depressed price levels, along with government regulations that are causing electric utilities to close existing coal-fired power plants and forego construction of new coal-fired capacity. Excess supply of coal worldwide also has contributed to sustained price weakness.
