Indonesia is a leading global producer and exporter of steam coal, with production estimated at 421 million tons (Mt) in 2013 and projected to reach 503.8Mt in 2020, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.5%. Substantial production over the forecast period 2014–2020, will be the result of both capacity expansions and the commencement of new projects. The islands of Kalimantan and Sumatra dominate Indonesia’s coal production and steam coal accounted for all the coal produced in the country, with the largest coal mines being the Sangatta, Paser and Batuah Village mines in East Kalimantan, and the Alam Duta Kalimantan mine in South Kalimantan.

- Coal deposits are scattered across 11 distinct basins on the four major areas of the archipelago that makes up Indonesia. The deposits are widely distributed across Sumatra, Kalimantan, West Java and Sulawesi.
- The major export markets for Indonesian coal in 2013 were India, China, South Korea and Japan. Steam coal exports are expected to grow over the forecast period with rising demand from India and China.
- A competitive advantage for Indonesian coal miners is its low cost of production compared to the global average. As a result, many coal mining companies in Indonesia are continuing to increase production despite weak coal prices.
- Indonesian coal deposits have low to medium calorific value, with high moisture and low ash content. The main advantage of Indonesian coal is its low sulphur content, which makes it one of the cleanest coals available in the world.
- New South Wales and Queensland dominate Australia’s black coal production, although smaller quantities of black coal originate from Western Australia, South Australia and Tasmania.
- Significant black coal deposits are located in the Bowen-Surat basin in Queensland and Sydney basin in New South Wales.
- By 2015, expansion plans at the major ports in Queensland and New South Wales will increase the total export handling capacity to 515 million tons per annum (Mtpa) from 456Mtpa in 2011.
- Australia’s proven coal reserves amounted to around 76.4billion tons (bt) at the end of 2012, representing 9% of proven global coal proven reserves.
