Experts: Coal Exports Will Offset Projected Declines in U.S. Electric Mix, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - Apr 25, 2011) - Written by John Egan for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- Coal companies face declining demand for their product from U.S. Power companies, but rising demand for coal in China and India will offset declining demand for coal among U.S. electric generators, speakers told a webcast on the "Future of Coal Generation" on April 21.

Coal's fortunes in the U.S. could brighten if natural gas prices rise to about $6 per million British thermal units from its current level of about $4.50, Mark Griffith, managing director for the power market analysis practice at Black & Veatch (Overland Park, Kansas), told the attendees.
