Coal production at the Elginskoye field in 2015 will be 3,8 million tons

Igor Khafizov, Managing Director of Yakutugol Holding Company OJSC, reported to the Government of Yakutia on the Elga field development project. According to him, in 2015, production at the Elga field should amount to 3,8 million tons of coal.

Elga is primarily an export-oriented project of the Mechel Group. As EastRussia explained in the Mechel press service, in the coming years, the main consumers of Elgin products will be large metallurgical holdings in the Asia-Pacific region - from Japan, China and South Korea. Elga coking coal is also sent to the coke-chemical plants of the Group and other Russian companies; thermal coal is in demand at thermal power plants in the Far Eastern Federal District.

"Elga is developing at the plans and pace that were planned", - Kommersant reports the words of Igor Khafizov. The Managing Director of Yakutugol also said that the figure for the monthly shipment of coal to the railway in the amount of 250 thousand tons has been achieved.
