PACIFIC BULK COMMODITY TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM, VOLUME II
A study was conducted of the feasibility of using slurry systems to carry western U.S. steam coal to Far Eastern Markets. The selected system consists of a pipeline for overland movement of slurried coal from Emory, Utah to Oxnard, California, and large, special purpose ships to carry the coal to Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. The selected system was found to be able to deliver coal to far Eastern Markets at prices competitive with coals from Australia, China, and South Africa, and at prices $10 per ton cheaper than any other U.S. alternative.
