EU Kazakh Coal Imports Via Russia Rose 5% in 1H

COAL

EU imports of Kazakh coal via Russian ports rose by 5% on the year to 1.4mn tons in the first half of this year, Kpler data showed, cited by Montel.

  • Almost half of the coal, 0.68mn tons, was imported to Italy, followed by Poland with 0,26mn tons and Spain with 0.17mn tons.
  • EU imports of Kazakh coal via Russia stood at 0.37mn tons in June, the highest since December.
  • However, imports are unlikely to pick up further in the coming months, as most of the coal is exported to Asia as of now, traders told Montel.
  • Total European thermal coal imports declined by 60% year on year to 10.5mn tons in the first half of this year, Kpler vessel-tracking data showed previously.
