Report summary

Generally low heat PRB coals must be sold at a discount to compete with PRB coals with higher heating content. The discounted pricing is due to a combination of lower heating value higher cost of transportation per mmbtu and higher volume of coal through the EGUs' coal handling systems. We project that as the PRB market declines between 2018 and 2022 the market share of low heat PRB coals will be halved. A further fall in market share will occur after the Clean Power Plan begins to cap national CO2 emissions.
