The centers of the coal industry will transfer to the Far East
The program for the development of the coal industry of the Russian Federation until 2030 provides for a large-scale transfer of the main centers of the coal industry to Eastern Siberia and the Far East. This development path is associated with the development of promising coal deposits in the underdeveloped eastern regions - Yakutia, Tyva, Transbaikalia, Sakhalin. The increase in the projected production volumes can be largely influenced by economic cooperation with China on the possible development of three fields. These are two deposits in the Amur Region - Erkovetskoye, Gadzhinskoye; and one in the Trans-Baikal Territory - Chikoiskoe.
In this regard, the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation forecasts an increase in coal production in the Far Eastern Federal District more than twofold - up to 75 million tons, the head of the department Alexander Novak said at a government meeting.
“We forecast an increase in production by 2030 to 480 million tons in the optimistic scenario, including in the Far Eastern Federal District - from 33 million to 75 million tons,” Novak stressed. - As for exports, in comparison with the previous edition, it will grow by 70 million tons, while the ratio in the western and eastern directions will change. All growth will be in the east, while supplies to the Atlantic market will not change. The increase in supplies to the market of the Asia-Pacific region is associated, as you know, with the rapid growth in demand. According to forecasts of international agencies, by 2030 the coal market in the Asia-Pacific region will grow 1,5 times. "
