Petcoke Prices – Do They Relate to Anything?

Ben Ziesmer

McCloskey Group Petcoke Conference — 2008 Houston, TX June 10 & 11

petcoke pricing a new paradigm
Petcoke Pricing –A New Paradigm?
  • Cement industry – from secondary fuel to preferred fuel
    • Many kilns use 100% petcoke
    • Ash in fuel becomes part of clinker
    • Supply certainty important
    • Coal supplier dependability concerns
  • Power industry – still secondary fuel
    • Must be lower cost on $/MMBtu basis

USGC & USWC Petroleum Coke

$/MMBtu CIF Mediterranean (USGC/Caribbean) or CIF Japan (USWC)

U.S. Climate Change Legislation –Lieberman-Warner
  • Oil refineries – Have to acquire CO2 credits based on carbon in crude
    • Assumes all carbon in crude becomes CO2
    • Refiners can allocate CO2 cost among products as they see fit
  • Coal – End user accounts for CO2 emissions
    • Generating stations & industrial plants need CO2 credits for emissions
  • No double counting → CO2 from burning petcoke should not count as CO2 emissions
lieberman warner petcoke
Lieberman-Warner & Petcoke
  • CO2 emissions ~3 tons/ton petcoke burned
  • How CO2 affects petcoke value
    • Internal U.S. – increases value
      • worth premium to coal as CO2 already counted
    • Exports
      • Developing countries – no effect
      • EU – should decrease value due to EUA cost
  • WTO – Potential problem if export price is lower than domestic price
  • USGC petcoke prices are not directly correlated with South African coal prices
    • New pricing paradigm?
  • Neither <2% S nor >2% S petcoke prices are directly correlated with Aussie steam coal prices
  • Premium of <2% S over >2% S petcoke has varied
    • Steel industry primarily uses coking coal
    • Coking coal premium over steam coal  
    • Steel industry has been easing sulfur requirements
  • U.S. coal prices not correlated with international coal prices
    • When international coal very high, U.S. coal can move into Atlantic Basin export market
    • CAIR scrubbers changing U.S. coal market
  • U.S. petcoke fueled project potentially exposed to international vs. domestic coal price risk
  • CO2 emission regulations can produce unexpected changes
    • EUA currently not high enough to push users from petcoke to natural gas
