The coal market has rebounded after four years of decline with government's coal reference price (HBA) for October 2017 hit US$93.99 per ton FOB, far higher than $69.02 in the same period last year.

Many expect the outlook for Indonesia's coal miners to remain positive next year, partly due to ongoing development of new coal-fired power plants that would ramp up coal demand in domestic market.

Member countries of ASEAN have also been consuming more coal to fuel their coal-fired power plants with demand is expected to raise for decades to come, thus providing new markets for Indonesian coal producers.

Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Ignasius Jonan recently said the development of mine mouth coal power plants will be prioritized as such project could minimize cost of transporting the coal as part of efforts to make the electricity prices down.

Jonan earlier turned down a proposal from PLN to set the coal price based on a formula of production cost plus margin, arguing that such a formula is outdated and would not encourage efficiency.

However, questions remain in place on how the government provides electricity at low prices throughout Indonesia? How much support will the government provide to meet the set scheduled for developing 35 GW electricity project, including the coal-fired power plants?

To what extent can the recent rebound coal price be sustained? What would be impact of Chinese clean air regulation coal demand from Indonesia? As well as what is the trend of coal demand of ASEAN countries from Indonesia?

The Coal Outlook conference organized by CoalAsia Magazine and Petromindo Group would discuss key issues shaping coal mining investment, price trend and exploring new market opportunities in domestic and overseas, particularly countries in the Southeast Asia region.
