POWDER RIVER BASIN DEVELOPERS AIM AT 86 MILLION TPY BY '85

The outlook for developers of western coal in Wyoming's Powder River Basin is examined in the wake of a Supreme Court decision in favor of the industry. Some companies are stepping up development activities while others are adopting a more cautious approach. The Basin's coal developers have set their sights on a production target of 86 million tpy by 1985, but this production goal will depend on new transport facilities, including both railroad and slurry pipeline projects.
