Warm weather, low prices hit energy rail traffic in 2016
Rails and coal.....
Let her throw her tantrum. COAL IS DEAD!
Ron Kuntz/Associated Press A CSX freight train with a Coke Express car used to transport the steelmaking material. Freight lines like CSX and Norfolk Southern are experiencing revenue declines associated with drops in coal and other energy related materials shipments.
he nation’s rails have been carrying fewer loads recently, led by sharp declines in trains hauling coal, crude oil and other energy products, due to an unusually warm winter season and persistently low oil and gas prices.
Over the last year, shipments of coal and petroleum products on the U.S. freight railroad system are down 36 percent and 19 percent, respectively, according to traffic data collected by Association of American Railroads for the week ending Jan. 23.
Depressing traffic further, shipments of metallic ores and metals — which include coke for steelmaking and materials for pipelines — were down 16 percent from one year ago. Nonmetallic minerals, which include industrial sand used in natural gas drilling, were down 14 percent.
Those declines have weighed down overall U.S. rail traffic by about 11 percent: Of the 12 categories of products that freight railroads carry, those four categories posted the largest declines over the past year. Coal carloads make up about 15 percent of all U.S. rail traffic, while crude oil and related petroleum products account for another 3 percent.
The steep decline in energy products is nothing new for U.S. rail operators, which forecasted a prolonged decline last summer in reports to the U.S. Department of Transportation. But as warmer weather leads to growing coal stockpiles at power plants — and with oil prices slipping below $30 a barrel this month — railroads are being forced to look at other sources of revenue.
Executives at CSX Corp. and Norfolk Southern Corp., the two major rail carriers through Pittsburgh, have both noted steep lo
SUGAR LAND--February 3, 2016--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--The U.S. wind power industry installed more capacity in the last quarter of 2015 than in the entire year of 2014, according to the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA). Industrial Info has tracked 52 U.S. wind power projects worth more than $15 billion that were completed in 2015.
Children losing their fathers.
4 American died in Ben------GazzzzzzzzI Make noise
26 miners die in a coal accident. WHO CARES?
I'm the ONLY ONE here rgar CARES about coal miners.
Lose a job, get another one. Lose a life and it's OVER!
But CoalMinerKillerWoman isn't troubled. But we will get a lot of double talk!
Doop and her husband, Marlin, who owns an auto body shop, already are seeing the changes. He just spent three weeks focused exclusively on repairing a Ford Super Duty pickup truck from a coal mine that had a crushed cab and bent frame.
A $15,000 check he got from Arch the same week the company filed for bankruptcy bounced. He said he can’t afford health insurance and was going to use the money to pay for another round of treatments for advanced liver and colon cancer.
Now he’s waiting in line with anybody else for recourse through federal bankruptcy court.
“Could be one to five years. And then when they settle, they always settle with the biggest companies first. And then the little guy gets stuck,” Marlin Doop said.
Analysts say the moratorium will add to the uncertainty in Gillette. At stake are the industry’s long-term prospects, and if it will be profitable to keep mining at current levels if costs increase after the review. It could apply to as many as 28 projects in nine states, although federal officials said they still were working out the full implications.
As it is, the coal companies themselves have been unwilling to lease any new coal in the Powder River Basin for the past three years, stemming largely to the uncertain market for the fuel.
“The damage has already been done by current market conditions and a decision to regulate carbon dioxide,” said Robert Godby, who directs the Center For Energy Economics and Public Policy at the University of Wyoming.
The leasing moratorium, he said, represents “more nails in the coffin. I don’t want to say they’re already dead, but you get the idea.”
In November, the International Energy Agency quietly dropped this bombshell projection: “Driven by continued policy support, renewables account for half of additional global generation, overtaking coal around 2030 to become the largest power source.”
In this post, I’ll dive deeper into this rapidly-approaching role reversal for coal and renewables. In Part Two, I’ll explain why the so-called “intermittency” problem for some renewables is basically solved and thus not a barrier to this reversal.
In releasing its World Energy Outlook 2015 last fall, the IEA published this chart of projected electricity generation in 2040:
And who is she typing to? Everybody is gone. Last active post on the ACI board was 4 days ago. (not counting the penny stock spam)
Coal pumpers have run long ago.....
Lights are out. Power is off. If you come to the ACI board bring a flashlight......It's a dark empty cavern now.... Hello hello. Wait for the echos.......
You mean that the Republicans will do an infrastructure bill?????
