INS: Coal production fell by 16% in the first nine months of 2023

28 November 2023

Romania’s coal production totaled, in the first nine months of this year, over 1.918 million tons of oil equivalent (toe), being 16% lower (minus 366,700 toe) compared to that of the similar period in 2022, according to the data centralized by the National Institute of Statistics (INS).

In the mentioned period, Romania imported 166,700 toe of net coal, 173,500 tep less (minus 51%) compared to the amount imported the previous year in the same period, according to Agerpres.

According to the National Strategy and Forecasting Commission, Romania’s coal production will decrease this year by 12.5%, up to 2.705 million toe, while imports will decrease by 40.3%, to 210,000 toe.

In the latest forecast of the energy balance, CNSP indicates that, until 2026, the dynamics of coal production as well as their import are predicted to decrease, as other energy production capacities will be put into operation. Thus, in 2024 production will decrease by 6.7% (to 2.525 million toe) and imports by 6.7% (to 195,000 toe), in 2025 by 8.6% (to 2.31 million toe), respectively by 4.5% (at 185,000 toe) and in 2026 by 10.2% (at 2.075 million toe), respectively by 2.5% (at 180,000 toe).
