North America coal short-term outlook June 2019: Awaiting summer demand

Report summary

Prices fall across the board as below average temperatures hold through the beginning of June and natural gas and renewables increase their share of the energy mix. Cooling demand has yet to come around and June production levels have reflected this. Production in the first three weeks of June was significantly below 2018. Contracted shipments to overseas markets continue but are contributing to a supply glut in Europe and Asia and the resulting low prices. Most or all international shipments are adhering to contracts signed last year when prices were higher. At current price levels, it is unlikely that any US thermal product can be booked profitably to seaborne customers.
