Colombian Cerrejon to miss 20 mn ton coal target owing to strike

For 2020, Cerrejon had a projected initial goal of around 26mn t, which was adjusted to 20mn t owing to the impact of the pandemic. The strike, which enters its 22nd day today, has prevented around 56,000 t/d of coal, or 1.23mn t, from reaching international markets, and could further reduce the company´s output if not lifted soon. Cerrejon, Colombia’s second-largest thermal coal producer, exported 12.4mn t in the first eight months of 2020, down by 5.1mn t from the same period in 2019.
