Exports of coal on Sakhalin increased by 3
The enterprises of the coal industry of the Sakhalin Region in the first quarter of the year 2014 sent for export to the countries of the Asia-Pacific region 280,7 thousand tons, which is 3,3 times more than in the first quarter of 2013. Out of this volume 222,3 thousand tons were shipped to China, the rest - to Japan.
As explained in the Ministry of Energy and Housing and Communal Services of the region, such an increase in exports was influenced by the favorable ice conditions last winter. Moreover, after several years of inactivity, the non-freezing sea fishing port of Nevelskoy was launched, through which Gornyak-1 LLC now ships its coal for export.
Total enterprises of the coal industry in the region for the first quarter produced 648,7 thousand tons of coal or 16,7% less than the same period last year. The decrease was due to the fact that the stripping works were carried out on the Sakhalinugol-2 open-pit mine, and the Sales-Nedra open pit (the former Vakhrushevsky coal cut) is not working for technical reasons.
The main volume of production was traditionally taken by the largest coal-mining enterprises of the region: LLC "Sakhalinugol Management Company" (includes 4 enterprises) - 140,5 thousand tons, as well as LLC Gornyak (1 enterprise) - 229,1 thousand tons, LLC Managing Coal Company »(3 enterprises) - 99 thousand tons.
