KEMEROVO, August 26. /TASS/. Russia’s Energy Ministry is keeping its 2016 coal production outlook at 390 mln tonnes (4% increase), Minister Anatoly Yanovsky said Friday.
"We expect production at around 390 mln tonnes of coal versus 373 (mln tonnes - TASS) last year," he said.
According to Yanovsky, the Energy Ministry wants to retain the coal export dynamics in 2016.
"In Russia we have an average of 6% (per six months - TASS)," he said.
According to Aman Tuleev, the governor of the Kemerovo Region, coal production in the region may reach 220 mln tonnes this year, up 2% compared with 2015.
"Coal production will increase compared with last year to around 220 mln tonnes," he said.
Western Siberia's Kemerovo Region with Kuzbass Basin is the leading coal mining area in Russia, where 59% of total Russian coal is mined. According to Tuleev, last year coal-producing enterprises in Kuzbass produced a record of 215.8 mln tonnes of coal.
As was reported earlier Russia’s coal export may increase by 6% this year to 165 mln tonnes compared with 2015 (156 mln tonnes).
