Why King Coal is Bigger than Oil or Gas / Commodities / Coal

By: Money_Morning

Lost in the debate about exporting U.S. oil and natural gas is any mention of America’s greatest energy export.

Coal.

And while legislators, corporations, environmentalists and others argue over pipelines, refineries, tariffs and trade agreements in the oil and natural gas industries, the U.S. sends tons of coal to eager customers all over the globe. Coal usage is at a 45-year peak, and Europe and Asia will take every ounce we can export…

Seven Things You May Not Know About Coal / Commodities / Coal

By: Marin_Katusa

The days of tossing another lump on the fire to keep warm are behind most of us, but coal is still vital to keep our modern computers, air conditioners, and even cars humming. How much do you know about one of the world’s most indispensable commodities?

#1. Before turning into coal, layers of ancient swamp bed transition through another familiar carbon compound in as little as 9,000 years. That’s peat.

Peak Coal / Commodities / Coal

By: Ronald_R_Cooke

Properties

Comments about coal are usually not complimentary. Despite our dependence on it as a source of heat for electric power generation, environmentalists wish it would go away. On the other hand, advocates like to claim we have more than 110 years of coal left – “at present rates of consumption”. Both sides are overlooking crucial points. Let’s see if we can clarify the future use of coal as a fossil fuel resource.

Coal the Most Unlikely Beneficiary of the Natural Gas Boom / Commodities / Coal

By: Money_Morning

Peter Krauth writes: An array of energy's sub-industries are making a fortune from America's natural gas boom.

Rigs, pipelines, rail, wastewater treatment, trucking, seismic imaging, well-site security... And a lot more opportunity is on the way, like the deal Kent just uncovered.

But perhaps the most unlikely beneficiary of the shale revolution is the coal industry.

Getting Coal in Your Christmas Investing Stocking / Companies / Coal

By: Chris_Vermeulen

We all want new and exciting electronic gizmos and gadgets for the holiday season. Unfortunately they have the tendency to lose almost all their value within weeks because of newer versions etc… but what if you just got a lump of dirty old coal in your stocking, how would you feel?

The only individuals who would appreciate a dirty gift like that would be those forward looking investors who see major opportunities before they become the next big movers and headline news.

Clean Coal And The Transformation Of Society / Commodities / Coal

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe OECD's so-called "oil and energy watchdog agency", the International Energy Agency (IEA) continues to claim, firstly, that CO2 sequestration and deep underground storage or other disposal - called CCS - is a vital and obligatory energy revolution for all countries, due to the anthropogenic global warming crisis. Secondly it claims that CCS can be made a technological and industrial reality but will not "significantly harm the economy" or create the need for an unprecedented transformation of both the economy and society.

Coal Stocks Are Historically Cheap – Here's What You Need to Know / Companies / Coal

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePatrick Vail writes: The U.S. coal industry is facing a perfect storm and has taken a beating recently, bringing coal stocks down with it.

According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), electricity generated by coal was down more than 20% in 2011. So it's no surprise that U.S. coal producers have been hit, and their valuations stand at 15-year lows.

China Reaches Peak Coal / Commodities / Coal

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCoal presently supplies about 67% of China's commercial energy but its National Energy Administration, 21 March, released its five-year 2011-2016 plan for Chinese coal, which features a near-term peak, and then decline of coal in the energy economy. The world’s largest user and producer of coal intends to limit domestic output and consumption of the commodity by 2017, to reduce pollution and to curb reliance on this fuel, which also faces a rising number of supply problems from reserve depletion to coal import costs, infrastructure and transport needs.

It's Time to Invest in Coal / Commodities / Coal

By: Marin_Katusa

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarin Katusa, Casey Research Energy Team writes: Coal prices are surging ahead even as most other commodities pull back, spurred on by expectations that metallurgical and thermal coal production will again fail to meet rising global demand this year. The result? Record profits for major coal producers like Xstrata, a surge in acquisitions from coal-hungry India, Chinese electricity shortages, and a raging carbon tax debate in Australia amid record investments in that country's coal-heavy mining sector.

Coal Use Shine’s Light on China's Economic Growth / Commodities / Coal

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInternational coal prices hit $124 per ton this week, the highest levels in five months, as strong demand from reconstruction projects in Japan and reduced supply from flood-ravaged Australia has made coal supply tight. The floods in Queensland, Australia cut the country’s output of coal by 15 percent and other big coal producers such as Indonesia, South Africa and Colombia are experiencing similar production cuts due to floods of their own.

Coal ETF Approaching Resistance / Commodities / Coal

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Once again, let's notice that the Market Vectors Coal ETF (KOL) is bumping up against its key near-term resistance line, now at 49.11, which so far has thwarted the upmove off of the most recent pivot low at 45.17.

That said, my near- and intermediate-term work argue in favor of a penetration of the resistance line, which will trigger upside follow-through above 49.85 on the way to 51.50.

Australian Floods Cause Drought in the Coal Market / Commodities / Coal

By: Marin_Katusa

Marin Katusa, Casey’s Energy Report writes: The most important metallurgical coal basin in the world is underwater. Open pits have become lakes, stockpiles are soaked, and rail lines are submerged and in places destroyed. Damage is estimated at $5 to $6 billion.

Australia accounts for almost two-thirds of global coking coal production. Much of it comes from Queensland, where an area the size of France and Germany combined is underwater. That includes the Bowen Basin coal region, which produces almost a third of the world's coking coal. The Bowen Basin was hit with 350 mm of rain in December, against an average of 102 mm.

Coal is dirty, it's dusty, and it sends environmentalists into a tizzy. It's also the most rapidly growing fuel source in the world, it's broadly distributed with almost 70 countries having economically recoverable resources, and the energy found in it still exceeds that in all other fossil fuels combined.
