    Wyoming coal mines cut production, jobs due to weak demand

    May 2, 2012

    Three coal mining companies in Wyoming’s Powder River Basin are cutting back operations due to a decline in coal demand from a warm winter and utilities moving away from coal to cheap natural gas. Peabody Energy Corp., which operates the North Antelope Rochelle, Caballo and Rawhide mines in the Powder River Basin, reduced its contact labor and temporary workers last week, totaling less than 2 percent of its Powder River Basin workforce. According to reports referring to federal employment data, cuts are estimated to be around 40 workers.

    Cloud Peak Energy, the operator of the Cordero, Antelope and Decker mines in the Powder River Basin, stated they are closely managing overtime and reducing use of contractors while trying to avoid buying new equipment. St. Louis-based Arch Coal announced Tuesday it would further curtail production for the year by idling three draglines by the middle of the year. It’s not yet clear how the decrease in production cut will affect jobs, said Kim Link, spokeswoman for Arch Coal.

    Peabody planning Asian coal shipments through Washington

    March 2, 2011

    Peabody Energy Company has signed a Asian coal-export deal with Carrix, the largest US container terminal operator, to ship up to 24M tons of coal annually through a new container terminal planned 20 miles south of the Canadian border. The move matches export the agreement between Arch Coal and Millennium Bulk Terminals to export through a proposed terminal in Longview, WA and expands a previous agreement for Peabody to export its coal through British Columbia .

    Both Peabody/Carrix and the earlier Arch/Longview agreements represent a significant expansion of coal export. Previous export routes either went through British Columbia, which has limited export capacity, or the Gulf of Mexico, which is a much longer route to the expanding Asian markets.

    Arch, Peabody seek coal exporting deals to Asia

    December 27, 2010

    With China tripling its consumption of electricity by 2035, the great majority of that electricity coming from coal, and internal production problems, major mining companies in the Powder River Basin are chomping at the bit to start selling their product to Asia. But the logistics of moving coal 10000 miles are not simple and will require an expansion of ports on the West coast, as well as some relief for overloaded railroads in western US. Environmentalists, concerned that selling to China will make an end-run around domestic environmental regulations, are promising to block such expansion.

    Colorado PUC adopts plan to switch Denver-area power plants to natural gas

    December 10, 2010

    The Colorado Public Utilities Commission has adopted a $1.4B plan to discontinue all coal-fired generation from the Denver area by closing four coal-fired plants, converting one to natural gas and building a new natural gas-fired power plant. As a result of the closures and conversions, the nitrous oxide (a key component in smog) during electrical generation will drop by 86% and consumer rates are projected to rise by a total of 2.4% over the next 10 years.

    The Colorado Mining Association and Peabody Energy have opposed the move and are exploring other legal options to oppose the plan. Stuart Sanderson, president of the CMA, said “this thing is far from over.”

    Peabody sends PRB coal to Europe, eyes new W Coast port

    October 19, 2010

    Peabody reports that it has begun exporting coal mined in the Powder River Basin to countries in Europe, Chile and Asia. It expects demand growth in Asia to be extremely high, pushing up the price for coal worldwide, and is seriously considering opening a new west-coast port specifically to export PRB coal to Asia.

    Peabody mine flagged by MSHA

    BY JEFFREY TOMICH • jtomich@post-dispatch.com – October 1, 2010

    Peabody Energy Corp. on Friday said it received an imminent danger order from federal mine safety regulators because of conditions at its Rawhide surface mine in Wyoming’s Powder River Basin.

    The St. Louis-based coal giant said in a regulatry filing that the Sept. 28 order cited unstable parts of a highwall and an access road that was too narrow. The company said mine employees completed work requested by the government inspector and the order was terminated.
