The Ministry of Energy & Mineral Resources of Indonesia sets the coal’s spot price for May 2012 at US$ 102.12 per ton, US$ 3.49  lower than April 2012 Price.

This coal benchmark price was calculated based on calorific value of 6,322 kcal/kg (GAR), stated to be using formula based on the April 2012 index average of ICI-1 (Indonesia Coal Index) 25%, Platts-1 25%, NEX (Newcastle Export Index) 25%, and GC (globalCoal Index) 25%.

Assessment basis of coal price reference was calculated considering coal with GCV (GAR)  6,322 kcal/kg, Total Moisture (arb) 8.00%, Total Sulphur 0.8% (arb), Ash Content 15 % (arb) and  delivery free on Board (FOB) Vessel basis  and applicable for spot contract, delivery between 1 - 31 May 2012.

The government of Indonesia has been publishing a monthly coal reference price (HBA & HPB) since January 2009 to be used by coal producers for all spot and term contracts. However the full implementation of HBA has started only since September 2011.

The May 2012 HBA was 13.17% or $15.49 lower on Y-o-Y basis.

The price was only valid for the spot price (loading before 31 May 2012), while as for term price (up to 12 months supplies), the average reference price (HPB) of the previous 3 months will be used to determine the selling price. (50% of latest available month HPB, 30% of one month prior HPB and 20% of two months prior HPB).

Government also declared reference price for eight brands of Indonesia's coal, which are most commonly traded in the market. Those eight brands are acted as the benchmark and used to calculate other 61 coal types with a quality similar to the coal price markers.

For sales in barge, the reference price is reduced by barging and transshipment costs from barge to vessel.

The coal reference price, which has been established to fulfill the requirement of mining law 04/2009 and latest ministerial decree 17/2010 and also aims to increase government revenue from royalties from coal producers. According to industry, all existing coal supply agreements with Indonesian coal mining companies have  revised to comply with new coal pricing regulation, which was fully implemented on 23 September 2011.

The Indonesian government is also expecting to introduce a coal export duty for coal in near future. According to officials, the proposal is in discussion among the high level officers to determine the percentage of duty. There will be two different types of duty could be introduced such as lower duty for higher calorific value coal and higher duty for unprocessed lower calorific value.

The government also has recently introduced export duty for unprocessed minerals but coal was missing in the recent regulation. Indonesian coal producers were asked to add value for their product such as washing, crashing, blending and upgrading to have a higher-value product prior to eye on the export market and avoid proposed export ban.

In coming months Indonesian coal industry can see  number of new regulations.

INDONESIAN HBA FALL TO LOWEST LEVEL SINCE JANUARY 2011

Indonesian HBA fall to lowest level since January 2011 this month. The monthly coal reference price for coal sales in April fall  by 6.43 percent, the lowest dropped in last 16 Months.

The Ministry of Energy & Mineral Resources of Indonesia sets the coal’s spot price benchmark for April 2012 at US$ 105.61 per ton, US$ 7.26 lower than March 2012 Price.

This coal benchmark price was calculated coal with calorific value of 6,322 kcal/kg (GAR), stated to be using formula based on the March 2012 index average of ICI-1 (Indonesia Coal Index), Platts-1, NEX (Newcastle Export Index), and GC (globalCoal Index).

Assessment basis of coal price reference was calculated considering coal with GCV (GAR)  6,322 kcal/kg, Total Moisture (arb) 8.00%, Total Sulphur 0.8% (arb), Ash Content 15 % (arb) and  delivery free on Board (FOB) Vessel basis  and applicable for spot contract, delivery between 1 - 30 April 2012.

The government of Indonesia has been publishing a monthly coal reference price (HBA & HPB) since January 2009 to be used by coal producers for all future spot and term contracts. However the full implementation of HBA has started only since September last year.

The price was only valid for the spot price, while as for term price, the average reference price (HPB) of the previous 3 months. (50% of latest available month HPB, 30% of one month prior HPB and 20% of two months prior HPB).

Government also declared reference price for eight brands of Indonesia's coal, which are most commonly traded in the market. Those eight brands are acted as the benchmark and used to calculate other 62 coal types with a quality similar to the coal price markers.

For sales in barge, the reference price is reduced by barging and transshipment costs from barge to vessel.

The coal reference price, which has been established to fulfill the requirement of mining law 04/2009 and latest ministerial decree 17/2010 and also aims to increase government revenue from royalties from coal producers. According to industry, all existing coal supply agreements with Indonesian coal mining companies have  revised to comply with new coal pricing regulation, which was fully implemented on 23 September 2011.

Indonesian government also drafting a regulation to ban coal with calorific value below 5700 kcal/kg on air basis for the export market by 12 January 2014 dried (according to the draft regulation posted on djmbp website). Indonesian coal producers were asked to add value for their product such as washing, crashing, blending and upgrading to have a higher-value product prior to eye on the export market.

Raw coal export will also be restricted once the regulation issued. The government has also issued a regulation (24/2012) which will limit foreign ownership in mines to 49 percent within 10 years of production.

Indonesia also planning to impose a 25 percent export tax on coal and base metals this year, and 50 percent in 2013.

However, we expect this export tax may not be introduced immediately due to the majority of  coal production or exports  (70 - 80 percent of Indonesian total coal production or export) are coming from CCoW holders. Under CCoW agreement which was signed between the coal mine contractors and government was not allowing any new duties or taxes on CCoW holders.

Hence government has to convert CCoW to IUP prior to introduce any new taxes or duties, if government want to enjoy benefits from all the coal exports from Indonesia. However, IUP holders are subject to any new taxes or duties. Hence we expect government will focus first  to convert the CCoW to IUP rather than introducing any new taxes or duties.

The basis for renegotiation is Law No. 4 /2009 on mining, which has changed the mining-concession regime by introducing a new licensing system (IUP). The law replaces mining authorizations (Kuasa Pertambangan or KP) as well as contracts of work (CoWs) and contracts of coal mining work (CCoW or PKP2B).

According to government officials, number of or majority of CCoW holders are willing to convert CCoW to IUP but the discussions are still on the way. The Ministry of Energy & Mineral Resources of Indonesia wants to complete all the conversion by end of this year.

In coming months Indonesian coal industry can see a number of new regulations.
