TRAINING COURSE Meet up with Perret Associates as Course Director Coal Trading Programme ∙ 2-3 December 2020, London organised by ICE Futures School of Coal ∙ 15-18 March 2021, Singapore ∙ September 2021, Oxford, UK organised by Coaltrans
3-4 million tonnes maximum potential loss from Murmansk
Perret Associates estimate that the potential loss in steam coal exports only (excluding metallurgical coal) from Murmansk to the EU and Med. destinations could equate to a maximum of 3-4mt during June-December. This assumes the worse case scenario when the bridge supplying coal to Murmansk will not be repaired before January 2021.
Could Russian suppliers succeed where Indonesian have failed?
The DES ARA market remains heavy although the drop in prices over recent weeks could well make fresh shorts hesitate before entering the market. A spell of colder than usual weather and some short-covering are also helping to support the market.
Interview with Guillaume Perret, Founder and Director, Perret Associates
Guillaume talks to Coaltrans about his forecasts for the coal price.
Clean Energy Plan and its impact on the energy and coal markets
Guillaume Perret’s interview at “Between the Lines” on Channel News Asia.
Perret Associates has been involved in the coal market since 2000 from different and complementary angles: trading, analysis, research, forecast and advisory. The activities are currently mainly focused on the steam coal market but the company is also expanding into metallurgical coal.
Perret Associates has been involved in the dry bulk freight market since 1995 first on the trading side, then with market research and advisory services. Freight is an inherent component of the coal market and is notoriously more volatile. The freight component can account for up to 45% of the price of coal delivered at importing terminals.
