China June Coal Output Hits Record

China’s coal output rose in June from the previous month to a record high, as miners ramped up production to ensure supply ahead of peak summer demand for electricity. The world’s top coal producer churned out 333.35 million tonnes of coal in June, up 6.7% from May and up 10.4% YoY. Output over the first half of 2019 reached 1.76 billion tonnes, up 2.6% from the same period last year. Summer is typically a high season for electricity demand in China due to increasing use of air conditioners in hot weather.

China’s state planner and energy administration have asked miners, especially big producers in Shanxi, Shaanxi and Inner Mongolia, to step up production of high-quality coal to meet increasing demand.

China generated 583.4 billion kilowatt hours of power in June, up 2.8% YoY, the data showed, with coal-fired power generation rising 0.1% from a year ago after two months of YoY declines.

Meanwhile, Beijing has been approving new coal mining capacity in recent months despite a push to promote clean energy and reduce its carbon footprint.

Opnieuw hoog handelsoverleg VS en China

Gepubliceerd op 19 jul 2019 om 08:37 | Views: 2.803

WASHINGTON (AFN/BLOOMBERG) - De Verenigde Staten en China hebben opnieuw op hoog niveau handelsoverleg gevoerd. Het is de tweede keer dat er overleg is geweest sinds het recente sluiten van een wapenstilstand in de handelsvete tussen beide economische grootmachten.

Er waren telefonische gesprekken tussen de Amerikaanse minister van Financiën Steven Mnuchin en handelsgezant Robert Lighthizer met Peking. Er zijn geen details bekend over de inhoud. Mnuchin verklaarde eerder deze week dat als het telefonisch overleg goed zou verlopen, hij en Lighthizer naar China zouden afreizen voor verdere gesprekken.

President Donald Trump en zijn Chinese collega Xi Jinping sloten op de recente G20-top in Japan een wapenstilstand in het handelsconflict. Overigens dreigde Trump deze week wel weer met meer importheffingen op Chinese goederen.
China’s Caofeidian Port Halts Custom Declarations for Seaborne Coal

Sources at three major Chinese steelmakers confirmed with S&P Global Platts that Caofeidian port in northern China has halted custom declarations for all coal imports effective July 16, which is being interpreted by the market as a signal of a further tightening of import curbs. They had received verbal notice from Caofeidian port-related authorities that restrictions were being imposed.

The sources said a meeting was held at midday Monday about the restrictions and that verbal notice was also circulated in the market Monday evening. A Caofeidian port agent also confirmed this with Platts, without providing further comment.

A Chinese trader said that “It looks like the Caofeidian port restrictions are targeting both thermal and metallurgical coals from all origins.”

Market sources said that the measure was imposed after the total volume of coal imported over the first half of 2019 was deemed by authorities to be greater than desired. China imported 27.1 million metric tonne of coal over January-June, including thermal and metallurgical coals, up 5.8% YoY, latest customs data showed. Caofeidian port is primarily a domestic coal hub located in northern Hebei province.

Although, no official announcement has been made, market players said the restriction was targeted at trading companies, while end-users were still allowed to process custom declarations.

China's Coal Imports to Plunge in H2 2019

Analysts told Montel that Chinese coal imports are likely to plunge in the H2 of 2019 as customs officials face the prospect of exhausting their quotas from as early as September. The world’s biggest coal consumer imported 154m tonnes of the fuel over the H1 of this year, up 6% YoY. This leaves officials with a choice of curbing foreign purchases for the remainder of the year or violating a government target to limit import volumes to around last year’s level of 281 million tonnes.

Mr Yu Zhai, senior consultant for energy information specialists Wood Mackenzie, said that we expect China will restrict imports in the second half of 2019. Customs officials had already begun asking ports to restrict low quality coal imports in June, adding he expected negotiations to yield tighter imports ahead. Roughly 80% of China’s coal imports were thermal last year, with the rest metallurgical. Thermal coal was likely to see the bulk of import curbs as it was easier to replace domestically.

Mr Yu said that China would import 185 million tonnes of thermal coal this year and that it had already received 108 million tonnes. With just 77 million tonnes to go, he saw imports falling sharply from September.

Chinese Firm Expects To Complete Zambia Power Plant By 2020

Xinhua reported that Zambian Government says Chinese enterprise Sinohydro Corporation is expected to complete the construction of the 750 MW Kafue Gorge Lower Hydro-power Station next year. Once the construction is completed, Zambia will have an increased power generation capacity of 3,750 from the current 2,900 megawatts. Minister of Energy Mr Matthew Nkhuwa said on Sunday Kafue Gorge Lower power plant works are on schedule and that the infrastructure is expected to be handed over by end of 2020. He said that "We are happy with the on-going works by a Chinese enterprise, works done so far is at 67%.”

Mr Nkhuwa said in an interview with Xinhua in Chingola that once the power plant is brought on board, Zambia is expected to be a net power exporter in the southern Africa region and beyond.

According to Nkhuwa, over 3,000 jobs have been created during the construction period. He said state-of-the-art technology is being applied at the power plant by the Chinese enterprise.

China Harbor Engineering Starts Construction of The Port of Tibar n Timor-Leste

China’s state-owned Chinese Harbor Engineering Co Ltd has begun construction of the port of Tibar in Timor-Leste with the first blasts at a quarry to collect construction materials, the Chinese embassy in the country said, adding that the official ceremony to launch the work took place on 15 July. The embassy said in a statement that the ceremony was attended by senior representatives of the government of Timor-Leste, including the Ministers of Transport and Communications, José Agostinho da Silva, of Agriculture and Fisheries, Joaquim José Gusmão dos Reis Martins and of Defence, Filomeno da Paixão de Jesus, as well as the Chinese ambassador in Dili, Xiao Jianguo.

Xiao Jianguo said there is huge potential for infrastructure cooperation, mentioning 20 companies in his country involved in this sector, one of which, China Harbor Engineering Co Ltd, belongs to the China Communications Construction Company included on the Global Fortune 500 list.

The project has had several “false starts” with the first laying of the first stone in June 2017, with a ceremony led by then Minister of Planning and Strategic Investment, Xanana Gusmão, and officials from the consortium led by the French group Bolloré.

Issues related to both financing and subcontracting eventually affected the start of the project, with a second launch ceremony taking place on 30 August 2018, and work almost eight months later has hardly begun.

US-China Trade War to Put a Drag to Its Q2 Earnings

Container port business Hutchison Port Holdings Trust is expected to announced its Q2 results ended June 30, 2019 next, after the market closes. The Singapore Exchange-listed trust owns interests in deep-water container port assets located in two of the world’s busiest container port cities by throughput: Kwai Tsing, Hong Kong and Shenzhen, China. HPH Trust operates terminals including International and Asia Container in Hong Kong and the Yantian and Huizhou International Container Terminals in China.

Net profit for the previous quarter fell by 33.4%

The business trust posted a 33.4% decline at HKD 96.9 million for its bottom line in the first quarter ended March 31, 2019. Earnings per unit came in at 1.11 Hong Kong cents, down from 1.67 Hong Kong cents a year ago. Revenue edged up by 0.3%, at HKD 2.7 billion.

The firm said its combined container throughput for its Kwai Tsing terminals in Hong Kong fell by 9.6%, mainly due to a fall in transshipment charges. Its container throughput in terminals in Yantian, Shenzhen, rose by 4.6%, supported by growth in transshipment cargoes.

Compared to 2014 pricings, HPH Trust’s share price has fallen by 70.2%

Comparing the firm’s share price from five years ago, its unit has fallen by 70.2% from USD 0.74 in July 2014 to USD 0.22. YTD, HPH Trust’s units have fallen by USD 0.02, from USD 0.24 on January 2, 2019 when compared to today’s price.

From the financial year of 2014 to 2018, HPH Trust’s annual Distribution Per Unit has fallen from a high of 41 HK cents to 17 HK cents, and is at a decline of 58.5%.

US-China trade war rocking the boat

For the financial year of 2018, the business trust posted a loss of HK$11.6 billion, due to non-cash impairment losses. The firm’s business problems overlapped into this year, as seen by the 33.4% YoY profit decline for January to March this year.

The weak performance in the Q1 of 2019 was due to the weak outbound cargoes to the United States, due partly to the front-loading of cargoes in the fourth quarter of 2018 in anticipation to the tariff increase by the US on Chinese exports which was originally scheduled to commence on January 1, 2019.

The volume of outbound cargoes to the US is expected to be volatile for this year as the US-China trade dispute continue.

Following the first quarter results from HPH Trust, Singapore banks DBS and OCBC had placed their rating on the business trust at “hold”, but cautioned on downside risks on the firm due to the weaker-than-expected start to 2019.

OCBC which had upgraded their view of HPH Trust from “sell” to “hold” since February this year, said it will keep watch on the global economic growth figures, ongoing discussions regarding the trade war, and possible cost-saving synergies from the Hong Kong Seaport Alliance, going forward.
