SunCoke Energy reported that fourth quarter U.S. coke production is expected to be approximately 1,082,000 tons, up an estimated 67,000 tons, or 6.6%, versus the same period in 2011. Full year 2012 U.S. coke production is projected to be more than 4.3M tons, an estimated increase of 580,000 tons, or 15.4%, versus prior year. The estimated increase for both periods was driven by the Middletown facility, which produced 153,000 tons and 602,000 tons in fourth quarter and full year 2012, respectively, versus 68,000 tons for both prior year periods.
