Report summary

The Powder River Basin (PRB) coal market was constrained in 2014 by deliverability issues. Approximately 20 30 Mt of PRB demand was lost this year due to growing constraints in the western rail network mainly a result of growing crude shipments by rail from the Bakken region. Congestion issues led rail service providers to limit coal shipments to only contracted deliveries and the spot market for PRB coal all but disappeared in 2014 driving down PRB spot prices.
