China asks miners to boost coal supply to be used for heating amid gas shortage

China has pushed coal producers to boost their high-grade coal supply to lock in fuel for the winter, Reuters reported Dec. 26, citing a statement made by the country's National Development and Reform Commission.

The move comes after warnings of gas shortages caused the government to ease back from its earlier plan to shift northern cities to natural gas usage for heating and away from coal, the report said.

Coal-fired power plants were also asked to boost their thermal coal stockpiles and upgrade their equipment to cut their carbon footprint.
