Output is expected to largelycontract by over 100 million tons for the second consecutive year, with aprojected annual decline of 168 million tons or a 19% cutback, which couldbring about the largestdecline in terms of both tons and percentage since data collectionbegan in 1949.

Therecent decline in U.S. coal exports is attributed to deteriorating global coaldemand and slump in coal prices. Total U.S. coal exports are expected toplummet by 20% in 2016 and 7% in 2017, the agency stated in its latest"Short-Term Energy Outlook."

TheEIA said forecast coal prices are $2.19/MMBtu and $2.24/MMBtu in 2016 and 2017,respectively.
