Shanxi eyes reform of coal industry, paper says

Shanxi province, the country’s leading coal producer, is exploring ways to reform its coal industry, including optimizing the trading of mining rights and adopting online trading and monitoring systems, the Shanghai Securities News reported Wednesday. The province is also seeking to boost production capacity for coalbed gas to 19.5 billion cubic meters and for coal mine methane to 5.2 billion cubic meters by the end of 2015. The target for coalbed gas will be stretched to 40 billion cubic meters by 2020, with pipelines measuring over 15,000 kilometers and gas supply available to all households in the province, the report said.
