Poland boosts coal imports as country's top miner falls short of production goal

Poland boosted its coal imports as output from the country's top miner is expected to fall short by about 2 million tonnes from its original 2017 output target of 32 million tonnes, Reuters reported Dec. 19, citing a top official from Polska Grupa Górnicza. Chief Executive Tomasz Rogala.

The country has begun importing coal from the U.S. in order to fulfill contracts with domestic and overseas buyers as state-controlled Polska Grupa Górnicza, or PGG, struggled to meet demand from major clients, the report said.

PGG, which produces about half of Poland's thermal coal, will likely miss its intended production target due to "technical reasons," Rogala said, with the year's output expected at "slightly above 30 million tonnes," Reuters reported.
