Argus Coal 2023

Global price reporting agency Argus invites you to take part in the Argus Coal 2023 conference, which will be held on May 25, 2023 in Istanbul.

The event will focus on the restructuring of coal exports amid the changing geopolitical environment, failures in supply chains and global imbalances in energy flows.

Participants will explore the shift in the balance of power between major coal producers in the global market in light of the redistribution of export flows caused by geopolitical factors and increased volatility in energy prices. The conference programme will cover forecasts for coal exports amid Russian suppliers’ rerouting their product to the Mediterranean and Asia-Pacific markets following the EU embargo on Russian coal imports introduced in 2022.

Speakers will pay special attention to the issues of seaborne coal transportation, the establishment of new logistics schemes and the restoration of stable financing for export deals.

The conference will be attended by leading producers and consumers of coal from Europe, Asia and CIS, as well as international trading firms supplying coal to the Mediterranean and Asia-Pacific regions. Metal producers and energy companies, transport operators and stevedoring firms, brokers and forwarders have shown significant interest in this high-level event.
