This report is currently available in Russian language only. However, we can provide an English version of the report within 5 weeks after receiving a payment.
The report focuses on the study of prospects of increasing export supplies of Russian coal through the ports of the Far East.
The report consists of eight chapters, contains 752 pages including 17 Figures, 17 Tables and 7 Appendices.
This work is a desk study. As information sources, we used: The Long-Term Program for Development of Russian Coal Industry up to 2030, which was developed in accordance with the Protocol of meeting at the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation V. V. Putin on June 24, 2010 № EP-P9-35 pr (Novokuznetsk), item12; The General Layout of Electric Power Facilities in Russia up to 2020 with Perspectives up to 2030, The Program for Licensing of Coal Deposits; The Transport Strategy for the Period up to 2030 ; The Strategy for Development of Railway Transport in the Russian Federation up to 2030, The Strategy for Development of Metallurgical Industry in Russia in 2020, Strategy for Socio-Economic Development of the Far East and the Baikal Region up to 2025, The Strategy for Socio-Economic Development of Siberia up to 2020, The Federal Target Program The Development of Transport System of Russia (2010 - 2015); Subprograms: Railway Transport, Maritime Transport, Federal, Investment Project Construction of the Railway Line Kyzyl - Kuragino in Conjunction with the Development of Mineral Resources of the Republic of Tuva, and others.
The first chapter of the report presents data on the resources of coal in Russia.
The second chapter is devoted to the situation in the Russian coal industry, data on the volume of coal production, the work of individual companies, foreign trade in coal, investments in the sector.
The third chapter of the report discusses prospects of the Russian coal industry, analyzes provisions of key policy documents relevant to the development of this industry, which were adopted in the country. The structure and amount of investments in The Long-Term Program for Development of Russian Coal Industry up to 2030 is presented, estimate of current and future demand for Russian coal is given.
The fourth chapter describes the main research projects to develop coal deposits in Eastern Siberia and the Far East and implementation of railway development projects in conjunction with their performing, including the development of Elga and the Ulug-Khem coal fields, Apsat deposit.
The fifth chapter analyzes activities of the Russian Railways (JSC RZhD), position of which determines the possibility of expanding coal exports through the ports of the Far East.
The sixth chapter analyzes the opportunities for freight carriage of goods by the Russian Railways, presents the main directions of its improvement, the structure of transportation of basic goods by the Russian Railways.
The seventh chapter examines operation of the main branches of the Russian Railways in Siberia and the Far East.
In the eighth chapter of the study, general characteristics of maritime transport are given, transport of the major cargo types for export is analyzed, and operation of the main ports of the Far East and the prospects for their development is described.
The conclusions provide assessment of the prospects for increasing exports of Russian coal through the ports of the Far East on the basis of carrying capacity of the Railways and the ports.
The Appendices provide information on key policy documents approved in Russia, which determine the development of the coal industry and transport for the long term.
