This month, the coke market rose three times on the 7th, 16th and 28th, with a cumulative increase of 150 yuan / ton. The steel start-up in this month is still at a high level, and the demand for coke is good. Under the influence of the policy of “determining production by coal” in Shandong Province in the first ten days, most of the local coking enterprises limited their production, and the supply in Shandong was tight, and the inventory was generally low. At the same time, the “Shanxi win the blue sky defense war conference” in Shanxi Province required some coke enterprises to open the production restriction, with the intensity of production restriction of about 20%. The local supply in Shanxi area was tight, and the order demand of coking enterprises was good, the shipment was positive, and the inventory was low, They are more positive about raising prices. In the middle and late ten days, the intensity of production restriction in Fenyang District of Shanxi Province increased to about 40%, and the situation of tight supply in some areas was further deepened. Under the promotion of production restriction policies in Shanxi, Shandong, Jiangsu and other places, the fifth round was implemented soon. After the fifth round of increase, the coking enterprises had a positive attitude and were generally optimistic about the future market, and then started the sixth round of raising 50 yuan / ton. At present, China’s main coke production areas are concentrated in Shanxi, Hebei, Shaanxi, Shandong and other provinces, among which Shandong and Hebei are still the main iron and steel production areas. Therefore, the policies of Shandong and Shanxi have a far-reaching impact on the coke market. On the 28th, with the purchase price of coke of mainstream steel mills in Shandong and Hebei increased by 50 yuan / ton, marking the sixth round of increase fully implemented, and this month’s rise in coke prices has temporarily come to an end. As of May 29, Shanxi Province reported 1800-1900 yuan / ton of quasi primary wet quenching coke, up 150 yuan / ton from the same period last month.

As of the 29th, the quotation of quasi first grade metallurgical coke was about 1900-1920 yuan / ton, and the spot exchange rate was about 100 yuan / ton compared with the same period of last month.
In June, the domestic steel market as a whole continued the rising trend in May, with steel prices “rising first and then stabilizing”. From the spot price point of view, the growth trend of the plate market is obviously better than that of long timber, and the increase is almost twice. Only thread prices showed a small decline. As of the 24th, the profit rate of 247 steel mills nationwide was 95.24%, a record high; and the average monthly profit rate of the past year was obviously at a high point, and rose for four consecutive months. It shows that the steel plant is still “profitable” at the current high price level of raw materials. The profit of steel enterprises in the second quarter may have a large growth space. The steel market is heating up, and the demand for coke procurement is strong, and the cost support of coke market is strong.
The Business Association believes that with the implementation of production restriction in Shandong and Shanxi, the supply of coke in some areas has been in short supply. The coke inventory remains low, and the demand of downstream steel mills is well supported. On June 30, the policy of capacity reduction in Xuzhou will be fully implemented, which will have a certain impact on the coke production in Xuzhou. The demand for coke from downstream steel mills will continue to be good, and it is expected that the future market of Coke will still remain There is room for growth, and the high level is mainly stable in the short term.

Shandong re approved the production capacity of 41 “two types” coal mines: according to Shandong Provincial Energy Bureau, Shandong will re check and approve the mining intensity and production capacity of 41 “two types” coal mines with rock burst and coal and gas outburst coal mines, scientifically determine the production capacity of coal mines with serious disasters, and prevent and contain major coal mine accidents. It is understood that the mining intensity of two types of mines in the whole province should be determined scientifically. All coal mining enterprises should strictly implement relevant requirements, carry out mining intensity assessment for all “two types” coal mines with normal production, re determine the production capacity of “two types” coal mines, and formulate “one mine, one side, one head and one policy”. At the same time, the production capacity of “two types” coal mines was newly approved. According to the number of mining working faces and the advancing speed determined by the mining intensity assessment, the production capacity of the mining system is recalculated according to the principle of only reducing but not increasing. Shandong Province will simultaneously carry out relevant work in accordance with the “coal mine self inspection, municipal comprehensive review, and provincial verification and determination”, so as to ensure that the determination of mining intensity and the re verification of production capacity of “two types” coal mines are completed on time before July 15.
