US coal utility stockpiles in 2020: What is the max?

Report summary

Demand from US coal-fired EGUs has again collapsed as natural gas prices have fallen to multi-year lows. Stockpiles at coal-fired EGUs have grown as generation fell below expectations. We expect the maximum possible stockpile level to be between 145-155 Mst. Given our current expectations for supply and demand, stockpiles will be above 150 Mst by May 2020. At this time, we are not expecting significant contractual disruptions as coal contracting has changed significantly over the past five years, with higher volumes of contracted coal being subject to volume or price sensitivity.
