Analysis: Premium coking coal lifts up, leaves pulverized coal injection behind

London (Platts)–13 Jun 2018

Premium coking coal prices have surged again, boosting their premiums second-tier HCC and PCI.

On March 23, the TSI HCC FOB Australia was 2.6% below the premium benchmark, the narrowest gap seen to date this year.

Mid-tier PCI spot prices were at a 68.65% relativity to Premium HCC on Wednesday, and an average of 75% in May.

Mid-tier PCI may be used for injection, and in the coke blend, lending a tight differential with prices for low-vol PCI spot assessments, which were at a $1/mt premium over mid-tier PCI on average in May.
