U.S. COAL EXPORTS: STILL HUGE, BUT DECLINING

The outlook for coal exports to the U.S.'s biggest markets: Japan, Canada and Europe, is discussed. In 1976, the U.S. continued to be the world's largest coal exporting country, selling abroad at least 10% of all coal mined in the U.S. Exports of coking coal are expected to increase over the next several years but the greatest opportunity for growth is seen in the steam coal market as the countries throughout the world turn to coal to replace imported oil for power generation.
