Coaltrans is delighted to present the latest addition to its portfolio – Coaltrans West Coast. As coal is gradually being displaced by shale gas in the energy matrix, North American producers are looking at exports to compensate for the domestic coal descent. As international demand for coal surges, Canada’s metallurgical coal producers are set to benefit from those opportunities. Canada’s legal framework and first class infrastructure systems receive increased attention from less established coal producing countries. However while the best form of flattery is imitation, challenges of a legal and logistical nature remain. With low extraction costs, Western USA coal producers should find new destinations for their products. However, access to infrastructure is competitive and uncertain. Coaltrans West Coast will bring you the latest information on infrastructure projects along the West Coast and realistic prospects for development. With a focus on accessing the leading Asian coal buyers, plus financing and investing prospects for junior coal miners in the region, join us in Las Vegas to hear from leading industry executives how to position your business to benefit from these opportunities. Confirmed speakers include: Ø Braam Jonker - President & CEO, Canada Coal Ø Max Wang - President & CEO, Grande Cache Coal Ø Atsushi Yoshida - Director Energy Business Department Electric Department Co, Ltd, J Power Ø Frank A.
