Colombia's met coke exports up by 61pc in January


By Argus

Petroleumworld 02 28 2019

Colombia's metallurgical coke exports surged in January, propelled by rising shipments to Brazil and Mexico, government data show.

Met coke exports rose to 133,866t in January from 83,096t a year earlier, with Mexico the top recipient on 58,000t, followed by Brazil with 52,551t. The third-largest buyer, Turkey, took 9,775t.

The largest supplier to Mexico in January was Carbocoque which shipped 32,000t, followed by Minminer with 22,000t and InterAmerican with 4,000t.

Milpa was the largest supplier to Brazil, providing 30,000t, while Excomin shipped 22,551t.

Colombia is expected to export around 2.8mn t of met coke this year as long as demand remains firm, unchanged from last year, because met coke capacity has reached its maximum and no new mines are opening up, an official at coal federation Fenalcarbon said.

Colombia increased coke oven capacity to 2.8mn t/yr last year from about 2.5mn t/yr at the start of 2017 to take advantage of strong seaborne demand. Coquecol restarted two facilities last year, in Castilla and Cucunuba, each bringing an additional 150,000 t/yr of capacity back on line. And it restarted a 120,000 t/yr unit in Boyaca in January this year, having idled it three years earlier amid low prices.

Colombia's coking coal exports totalled 8,014t in January, compared with none a year earlier.
