InvestorIdeas.com Launches New Investor and Industry Portal CoalSectorStocks.com Following Coal Stocks and Growth in the Coal Industry










POINT ROBERTS, WA (PRWEB) February 25, 2006

http://www.CoalSectorStocks.com, a global investor and industry news portal for coal sector stocks, (a portal within the http://www.InvestorIdeas.com umbrella of investor portals) is pleased to offer interested investors a new resource tool for researching the sector. During the past twenty years, the coal market has developed rapidly and according to data from the US National Mining Association, coal production is anticipated to reach 1.16 billion tons, 3.2 percent higher than 2005. The demand and growth due to rising energy prices has created new interest in coal stocks and investing in the sector.    

China is a major factor in the global coal market with the majority of China’s energy production still generated from coal. China is currently the world’s leading coal producing country, producing 2.11 billion tons of coal in 2005. In addition to energy generation, certain types of coal are also essential to the production of steel – this application is also a significant factor in the expansion of China’s coal market. Puda Coal, Inc. (OYCBB: PUDC), a Chinese coking coal producer and Yanzhou Coal Mining Company Limited (NYSE:YZC), provide insight into the critical driving forces behind this particular sector (Also visit our China-Asia portal http://www.China-AsiaStocks.com for recent articles on the coal and steel industries).

As China continues to expand its infrastructure, demand for coal is on the rise globally and within China. Chinese coking coal producer Puda Coal is benefiting from domestic construction’s need for steel, which has increased 25% in the first seven months of 2005. “Driving the demand for coking coal is the mass construction of infrastructure projects that require the use of large amounts of steel, and coking coal is essential in making coke, which is largely used in the steel making process,” explains Puda Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Zhao Ming. “We are now very well positioned to capture the intense demand for the high grade coking coal helping fuel China’s industrial revolution.”

Yanzhou Coal Mining Company Limited also shows great confidence in the coal market. According to a company representative, ”China’s coal consumption will continue to grow. A major driving factor is China’s high economic growth, which drives the demand for coal. In 2006, it is expected that coal consumption in China will reach 2.17billion short tons, an increase of 0.13 billion short tons from 2005.”

China-AsiaStocks.com Announces New Featured Company Puda Coal, Inc, Producer of Clean Coking Coal for the Steel Making Industry

China-AsiaStocks.com Announces New Featured Company Puda Coal, Inc, Producer of Clean Coking Coal for the Steel Making Industry










Point Roberts, WA (PRWEB) December 9, 2005

http://www.China-AsiaStocks.com (CAS), an investor and industry news portal for the China-Asia sector announces Puda Coal, Inc. (OTCBB: PUDC), a producer of clean coking coal used in the production of steel, as a new featured company. Puda Coal, specializing in cleaning and marketing China’s top grade coking coal, has become China’s leading supplier for the steel making industry.

Puda Coal operates in the Shanxi Province, a region that accounts for 20%-25% of China’s coal output and 50% of China’s coke production. According to the Company, Puda is establishing their competitive advantage through their key affiliations and strategic positioning. Puda has access to high quality raw coal through its connection with Jucai Coal (controls 60% of Liulin County’s highest grade coking coal deposits), and have built significant relationships with major coke and steel making customers. In addition, the Company is strategically and geographically positioned in Shanxi’s Liulin County, near a group of independent coke providers that supply 50% of China’s coke and 80% of China’s exported coke, with the extra benefit of having nearby rail line access.

“We have followed a strategy of securing the highest quality raw materials while making inroads with the most influential of industry manufacturers” said Puda Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Zhao Ming. “We are now very well positioned to capture the intense demand for the high grade coking coal helping fuel China’s industrial revolution.”

Puda is benefiting from the growing demand for steel production, which has increased 25% in the first seven months of 2005, as steel is a key component in China’s rail systems, bridges, ports, airports, construction projects and car production, helping to drive China’s economic growth. Puda coal is rapidly expanding in order to meet the growing demand for steel, increasing coal cleaning capacity from 500,000 metric tons (MT) to 2.7 million MT by early 2006. Puda Coal continues to be Shanxi’s lowest average cost producer through operating efficiencies, capacity expansion and processing know-how, which is contributing to their ability to secure key contracts with some of China’s largest steel and coking coal manufacturers, according to the Company.

From Consolidation to Construction: Factors Influencing Global Steel and Coal Markets

From Consolidation to Construction: Factors Influencing Global Steel and Coal Markets










POINT ROBERTS, WA (PRWEB) April 7, 2006

http://www.China-AsiaStocks.com (CAS), an investor and industry news portal for the China-Asia sector, features “From Consolidation to Construction: Factors Influencing Global Steel and Coal Markets”, for investors and industry following developments in the global steel and coking coal market. As the global steel industry continues to grow, its path of development can be traced through the activities of many of its participants such as BHP Billiton, Mittal Steel, Arcelor SA and Puda Coal Inc.

Mittal Steel (NYSE: MT), currently present in China and establishing an increasingly solid presence there, expressed their viewpoint on China’s stance on the global podium, with respect to the steel market: “We see demand remaining strong in the forthcoming year. This is a key strength of the Chinese market, along with low labor costs,” described a Mittal spokesperson.

According to Graeme Hunt, President of BHP Iron and Ore at BHP Billiton (NYSE: BHP) in a recent presentation given at the Global Iron Ore & Steel Forecast Conference, “Total production is expected to rise to around 380-400 million tons from 2005 to a total of 348 million tons. Steel production capacity migration to the south (away from the domestic iron ore mines and closer to discharge ports) and the recently released Chinese steel policy imply that the percentage of China’s seaborne iron ore imports will continue to increase.”

As coking coal continues to play a role in the production of steel, the impact of growth in China’s construction industry could be substantial given the increase in activity in this sector. According to Zhao Ming, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Puda Coal Inc. (OTCBB: PUDC), a Chinese supplier of premium grade coking coal to the steel making industry, “Steel is vital to the construction of rail systems, bridges, ports, airports, and car production, all of which are fueling the booming Chinese economy and its steady growth of 28% per year.”

Canadians Rush to China for Coal Bed Methane Gas Concessions

Canadians Rush to China for Coal Bed Methane Gas Concessions










Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) March 22, 2006

Now that Canada’s province of Alberta has implemented serious plans to become a highly regarded producer of coal bed methane gas, why are suddenly Canadian companies rushing to China for government concessions? “We got access to a huge resource for very little money,” Dr. David Marchioni, one of Canada’s top Coal Bed Methane geologists, told StockInterview.com. “Instead of paying hundreds of millions for a concession this size, we paid a small fraction of that. Comparably, the project at Guizhou would have cost up to $ 200 million to acquire in Alberta.” Despite having helped co-author “An Assessment of Coalbed Methane Exploration Projects in Canada,” published by the Geological Survey of Canada, Dr. Marchioni’s interest right now is drilling the mammoth Boatian-Qingshan property in the Guizhou Province of China. He serves on the board of directors of Pacific Asia China Energy, a Canadian publicly traded company which was the first to receive coal bed methane gas concessions from the Chinese government’s agency.

Dr. Marchioni looks forward to exploring and developing the coal bed methane project, which is reportedly about one-half the size of Rhode Island. “The Chinese government doesn’t want to hand out resources to people who don’t do anything with them,” Marchioni told StockInterview.com. “They want them developed. They want to have gas. They want to have energy.”

He is also president of Petro-Logic Services in Calgary, a consulting firm which specializes in assessing coal bed methane gas projects. His clients have included the Canadian divisions of Apache, BP, BHP, Burlington, Devon, El Paso Energy, and Phillips Petroleum, among others. Aside from being a director of Pacific Asia China Energy, Dr. Marchione is overseeing the company’s CBM exploration program in China.

The feature article, entitled, “China’s Energy Plan to Reduce Its Dependence upon Coal,” can be viewed at the Internet news website, StockInterview.com: http://www.stockinterview.com/china-coal.html

This is Part One of a Two-Part series investigating coal bed methane gas developments in China.

Canadian-Australian Joint Venture May Accelerate Coal Bed Methane Development in China

Canadian-Australian Joint Venture May Accelerate Coal Bed Methane Development in China










Sarasota, Fla. (PRWEB) March 23, 2006

Australia’s largest private drilling company, Mitchell Drilling Contractors, and Pacific Asia China Energy (TSX: PCE), the first publicly traded Canadian company awarded a coal bed methane concession by China’s coal bed methane development company (CUCBM) plan to team up their respective expertise to help move forward China’s plan to exploit the country’s more than 35 trillion cubic feet of methane gas embedded in its vast coal mines.

Pacific Asia China Energy director and one of Canada’s leading coal bed methane geologists, Dr. David Marchioni, told Stockinterview.com, “Mitchell Drilling has developed some unique approaches in how they drill their wells.” Pacific Asia needed a drill company for its nearly 900-kilometer square coal bed methane concession. “Originally, we wanted to bring them over to work for us,” Dr. Marchioni told StockInterview.com. “The more we talked to them, the more they got interested in China, and the more excited they got about it.”

The relationship shows promise, according to Pacific Asia executive vice president Steven Khan, who told StockInterview, “Other companies have already expressed an interest in using the Dymaxion technology.” The joint venture partnership has the exclusive right to use that technology in China. From China’s Premier to the head of CUCBM, the country is excited about coal bed methane technology. Premier Wen Jiabao announced last year, “We should intensify efforts to research, explore and utilize coal bed methane resources.”

Now that Mitchell Drilling is making the Dymaxion technology available in China, many coal bed methane projects can now move forward faster. “They have one of the highest success rates in this type of drilling,” said Steven Khan. “The combination of vertical and horizontal drilling allows for a much more efficient extraction of water from CBM wells while it increases the flow rates of gas from the wells.”
