Coal mining in Chukotka in January-May 2018g increased by 23,2%

Special project Coal of the East of Russia
The volume of coal production in the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug for the five months of this year amounted to 256,8 thousand tons, which is an increase of 23,2% over the same period last year, the government of the autonomy reported.

It is reported that the volume of coal mining amounted to almost 205,8 thousand tons, which is more than the indicator of the same period last year in 1,7 times. Coal in the region at the field "Fandyushkinskoe field" of the Bering coal basin is extracted by the company "Behringpromugol" ("daughter" of the Australian Tigers Realm Coal Limited). The project is implemented within the framework of TOR "Beringovsky", the company has an export orientation, the main markets are the countries of the Asia-Pacific Region. In 2018, the company plans to produce up to 600 thousand tons of coal.

Brown coal produced more than 51 thousand tons, which is almost 2 less than last year's volume. Production volumes are determined by the needs of enterprises of the fuel and energy complex and housing and communal services of the Chukotka Autonomy - coal consuming enterprises of OJSC Mine Coal. Decrease in production is associated with a decrease in the demand for coal in Anadyr CHP in connection with gasification.

The volume of natural gas production in January-May amounted to almost 12,4 million cubic meters. m (growth of 4%). The volume of gas production in the region is determined by the needs of the Anadyr gas-fired thermal power plant (GM CHP). Further implementation of plans for gasification of CHPPs may lead to an increase in gas production in 2018 by half, to 55-60 million cubic meters. m.

Traditionally, the economy of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug is based on the extraction of minerals. The strategic concept of the development of the region up to 2030 is oriented to the mining industry organized according to the cluster principle with concentration of production in two advanced development zones: Chaun-Bilibinsky polymetallic industrial zone, which includes deposits of non-ferrous metals and is located within the Chaunsky and Bilibino districts, and Anadyr industrial zone, Including deposits of coal, oil, gas. In addition, such development institutions as TOR "Beringovsky" and the free port of Vladivostok operate in Chukotka.

In 2017, the volume of natural gas production in Chukotka exceeded 30 million cubic meters. m with growth to the previous year by 16%. Coal for the last year extracted 445,3 thousand tons - including 189,4 thousand tons of brown and 255,88 thousand tons of coal (from the field "Fandyushkin field").
