Publisher Aruvian's R'search
Date of Report Nov 6, 2011
Quick Overview
The erstwhile Soviet Union which covered 1/8th of the entire world’s land mass had been a storehouse of Global Energy Sources in magnum quantities far beyond the capacity potentials of many Asian countries put together. Most of the high coal production basins of Russia had already been explored before the break up of the country into independent entities. The same is indicative of the fragmentation of an industry which had presented enough promise of exploration potential for mining generations to come.

The Russian Coal Industry has gone through several changes which have been initiated by the privatization and a complete new approach to reorganization of the industry in order to free it from its state controlled shackles and the heavy reliance on subsidies in order to survive. These changes have resulted in the establishment of a sustaining life time till 2050 till when it is expected that commercial coal production will be possible in Russia. Development has also been seen on technological front wherein certain breakthrough efficient technologies have been implemented but the same need to pass the experience muster in order to become mass scale solutions.

Aruvian's R'search’s report – Analyzing the Coal Industry in Russia - is an in-depth study of the Coal Industry in Russia wherein the analyst is first equipped with the basics of Coal with it’s historical perspective, the composition of coal and the types of coal which are commercially available for usage. The report also cautions on the environmental fallout of the usage of Coal as a Fuel and the containment measures like management of the Burn Residue which should be implemented.

The trend of consolidation in the global coal industry which is prevalent due to realization on part of companies to synergize exploration and mining costs, and add some comforting numbers to their bottom lines is also discussed in the report.

Understanding the Russian Coal Industry, the report delves into the early phase of exploration in the industry which successfully met the energy requirements of a huge nation with equally big energy needs wherein the report also explains the classification system implemented for coal in terms of geological reserves, economic, technical grades, etc., in Russia.

This report elaborates on the dynamics of this industry in terms of the competitive activity and the survival strategies implemented by the players which acts as control factors in the industry sometimes creating bottlenecks or presenting new challenges for the industry to overcome and ensure the propagation of growth.

The Russian Industry has taken steps in this direction as provided in the report in the restructuring of the industry which has been completed in many stages hereafter the report analyses the condition of the industry pre and post restructuring. The effects of restructuring on the Russian Coal Industry are further manifested in terms of the consumption patterns of coal in Russian Industries and the inter relationship of electricity production faring in comparison with the environmental effects of this activity is explained in this report.

The process and successful culmination of privatization of the Russian Coal Industry is explained in depth in this report wherein the various approaches to privatization along with ensuring the competitive sales of any company’s assets which has given birth to the new mega proprietors of this giant industry.

Some of the major coal reserves of this industry in the basins are examined in this report along with the relative production capacity of these basins. The control of these basins also translates to an analysis of the major market players of the Russian Coal Industry who have endured the correction cycles and are now contributing to the development and growth of this industry; what remains to be seen, however, is whether these players will be able turn the tide of slowdown and ensure the survival and progress of this industry and people related to it.
