U.S. Spot Coking Coal Prices Varied Amid Benchmark Negotiations

U.S. spot metallurgical coal prices were mixed amid negotiations on the benchmark contract, according to Energy Publishing Inc.

Spot prices for low-volatility coking coal slipped $5.67, or 2.5 percent, to $225 a ton in the week ended today, according to Energy Publishing, a Knoxville, Tennessee-based data provider. Prices for high-volatility coal increased $3, or 1.3 percent, to $225.

BHP Billiton Ltd. is seeking an 8 percent increase in coking coal prices to $225 a ton for the next quarter in talks with Japanese steelmakers, according to a report in Nikkei newspaper.

“Spot business done during the next couple of weeks is likely to be based, in some way, on the new settlement,” Energy Publishing said.

Energy Publishing says it surveys buyers and sellers of coal to determine pricing.
