Colombia coal miner Cerrejon production, exports fell in 2020

Colombian coal miner Cerrejon's production and export levels fell in 2020 due to lower demand, price declines, the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, and a three-month strike which paralyzed operations, the company said on Wednesday.

The miner produced 12.4-million tonnes of coal in 2020, down almost 52% from the 25.8-million tonnes it produced in 2019.

Exports fell 48.2% from 26.3-million tonnes in 2019 to 13.6-million tonnes in 2020, the lowest level in the last 18 years.
