South Korean Steam Coal Imports Rise in January
South Korea imported 13.4 Mt of coal in January, down from 14.0 Mt in December but still up by 1.5 Mt year-on-year, according to IHS Energy. This was primarily due to a 1.6 Mt increase in steam coal imports (incl. anthracite) to 11.2 Mt. By contrast, coking coal imports fell slightly to 2.2 Mt.
