Platts proposes to change calculation formula for Met Coke 62% CSR Export-Domestic FOB North China

S&P Global Platts is proposing to change the calculation formula for Met Coke 62% CSR Export-Domestic FOB North China differential (PLVHN04), effective February 3, 2020.

The change will help to better reflect the export-domestic spread for the similar grade of metallurgical coke.

Current formula:

PLVHN04 = AAWVL00 - PLVHM04

Description Code

Coke 12.5% Ash FOB Tianjin China $/mt AAWVL00

Met Coke 62% CSR FOB North China Equivalent Weekly PLVHM04

Proposed formula:

PLVHN04 = MCCHA00 - PLVHM04

Description Code

Met Coke 62/60 CSR FOB China $/MT MCCHA00

Met Coke 62% CSR FOB North China Equivalent Weekly PLVHM04

The change would affect the prices published under Platts China PLV, Met Coke Price Differentials found in Page 6 of Steel Markets Daily publication, and page 6 of Coal Trader International, Platts Market Centre. The fixed pages affected are MW1052 and in the Platts price database PLVHN03 and PLVHN04.
