Australia’s North Queensland Jul coal exports rise 9% on year to 12.24 mil mt

SYDNEY: Exports of coal from the metallurgical coal dominant region of North Queensland, Australia, totaled 12.24 million mt in July, up 9% year on year but down 4% from June, North Queensland Bulk Ports Corporation data showed Tuesday.

The exports come via the 85 million mt/year capacity Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal, the 55 million mt/year Hay Point Coal Terminal and the 50 million mt/year Abbot Point Coal Terminal. Total exports in July from the three terminals translate to an annualized rate of 144.16 million mt, which leaves 45.84 million mt of latent capacity across the three terminals with a combined capacity of 190 million mt/year. The biggest of the three, DBCT, which is a Queensland State Government-owned common user facility, shipped 5.82 million mt during the month, which is up 8% year on year but down 10% from a six-month high of 6.44 million mt in June, the figures showed.
