DTC Lunch, Coal and Q&A: This past year has been a wild ride for the coal markets – global trade wars, strong international thermal and coking coal markets, record-setting exports, falling thermal inventories, surging coal plant retirements, and an administration which is decidedly pro-coal. Will 2019 markets continue the trend established throughout this year or are we due for change? We have assembled some of the finest minds in the coal business to help us sort through what matters and what does not. Please join us at DTC’s 22nd Lunch, Coal and Q&A on Wednesday, December 5th at the Princeton Club in NYC. Reserve your spot today for an engaging afternoon that will address the key drivers you need to watch in 2019, coupled with great networking opportunities! We expect this to be our best event yet.

  • Paul Vining/The Cline Group: To say that Paul Vining is keenly tuned into the coal industry is a massive understatement. Having served in senior management roles at many of the major coal companies (Alpha, White Oak, Patriot, Magnum, Arch, Peabody, and Massey to name a few), Mr. Vining brings a wide-ranging perspective rarely seen in any industry. As CEO of The Cline Group, Mr. Vining manages domestic and international commercial energy business activities in oil, gas and coal. Always a tell-it-like-it-is speaker, we are sure he will offer plenty of insight into the market space from his years in the business.
  • Export Coal Panel: Where do the export markets go from here? Is there any spare capacity available and where? Will we see any terminals expand? What price point will kill off US exports? Will the lack of production investment create a chronic long-term shortage for global coal? Where are the greatest growth opportunities and who is best positioned to profit from it? Our all-star panelists will draw on their current roles in the mining, marketing, and terminal sectors to give us the inside scoop as they share their views from the trenches:
    • Ted O’Brien/Xcoal, Capital Markets & Marketing
    • Matt Schicke/Corsa, CCO
    • Adam Anderson/T. Parker Host, President & CEO
    • Kevin Stanley/Contura, EVP and CCO
  • Domestic Coal Panel: Our domestic panel brings front-line views from the supplier, consumer and financial perspective. What are the biggest threats facing thermal markets today? Will exports continue to pull coal away from domestic buyers? Is buying behavior changing? Will the recent elections have a material impact on coal markets? Where is the new supply coming from and will it be enough? We have gathered some of the best brains in the business for a panel that will be packed with colorful commentary from coal veterans with a knack for identifying drivers overlooked by the mainstream.
    • Ginny Farrow/NRG, Portfolio Director
    • Adam Anderson/Paringa, Sr. VP Coal Sales and Marketing
    • Jeremy Sussman/Clarksons, Managing Director
    • Heath Lovell/Alliance, VP Public Affairs

The Details: The event follows the American Coal Council’s Coal Trading Conference at the Crowne Plaza Times Square in New York City (Dec 3 – 4), so we encourage those coming to town to stay the extra day for one last chance of networking and market insight.
