Cerrejon gradually resumes coal operations but is it still competitive?

Report summary

After a six-week curtailment in operations by nearly 90%, Cerrejon is ramping up mining at the 26 Mtpa operation as of 4 May. When the Colombian outages were first announced toward the end of March, Atlantic thermal coal prices increased by 10% over concerns over supply availability. However, the market has changed drastically since then, as severe demand declines are felt from the global outbreak. With even the lowest cost Colombian producers finding it difficult to compete at market prices at the beginning of the year, are they able to make margins under current conditions?
