US West ports' permit denial case - US domestic impact

Report summary

Wood Mackenzie's Global Thermal Coal Market Service recently released an insight ("US West ports' permit denial delays PRB and increases prices") analysing the potential market impact if new ports on the US west coast are prohibited from being developed.  While our Global Thermal Coal Market Service insight delved into the effect on international coal markets, this insight focuses closer on the result that a ban on new US west coast ports would have on the internal US coal market.
