Russian steel giant MMK announced that the volume of coking coal production in Q1 2019 increased by 19.2% QoQ and amounted to 1,464 thousand tonnes. This increase is due to the completion of maintenance works in the previous quarter and work at full capacity at the beginning of the year. Higher coal production allowed the company to completely cut the need to buy coal from third parties. Thus, external coal purchases decreased by more than 15 times compared to Q1 2018. The volume of coal concentrate production in Q1 2019 remained almost at the level of the previous quarter.
