PacifiCorp Signs Long-Term Coal Supply Agreement with Bowie Resource Partners to Supply Coal for the Huntington Power Plant
Jan 6 15
PacifiCorp signed a long-term coal supply agreement with Bowie Resource Partners LLC to supply coal for the Huntington power plant. Energy West Mining Company, The Deer Creek mine has an estimated five years or less of reserves, but much of the remaining coal has higher ash and sulfur content that has made mine production considerably more expensive and has made it more expensive to comply with air quality standards. Bowie Resource Partners LLC has signed a contract to provide the coal needed for the Huntington power plant, and will source the plant from its mines in Utah. Rapidly escalating pension liabilities for the mine's represented workforce was a large factor in the economic viability of the mine. The Deer Creek mine, located near the Huntington power plant, has been operating since 1974. PacifiCorp is targeting closure of the mine for early to mid-2015 pending regulatory approval.

Energy West Mining Co., the mine's subsidiary operator, has notified the site's 182 employees. Deer Creek, the last union mine in Utah, has an estimated five years of coal left, at most, but it's expensive to retrieve those reserves and comply with air-quality standards because of their higher ash and sulfur content. The employees' rapidly escalating pension liabilities was also a large factor in the economic viability of the mine.
