Failure to develop the Galilee basin will trigger soaring thermal coal prices in the future


Failure to develop the Galilee basin will trigger soaring thermal coal prices in the future

Report summary

Pessimism is growing in the Galilee basin with Adani’s announcement that engineering work will be halted at its Carmichael project. Once seen to be inevitable, basin development now seems uncertain given weak markets, rising costs, financing concerns and environmental opposition. Our analysis shows that without Galilee basin exports, seaborne thermal coal markets will witness up to a 20% increase in price over time.

  • Introduction
  • Headwinds intensify and threaten Galilee mine development
  • If Carmichael fizzles, will other Galilee basin projects pick up the slack?
    • Galilee basin production by mine, base case (Mt)
  • How will the seaborne market react if Galilee basin coal is unavailable?
    • With no Galilee basin coal supply the seaborne market will demand more low rank coal
    • Indonesia and the US will benefit most if the Galilee basin is not developed
    • Seaborne trade flow patterns will be modified, especially in the long term, if the Galilee basin is not developed
    • With no Galilee basin exports, seaborne thermal coal prices will soar, especially after 2028
