ac1 Gosh, you mean you are going to double the amount of shares in OPG that you have never held in the first place. How astute.

TC an interesting report by the EIA. The facts supports the main thrust of my post 4402 -growing demand for electricity and the failure to mine adequate supplies of native coal for its power stations. Whilst the quality of the coal may not be as good as coal from Indonesia, clearly the majority of generating plants in India use the former; why else would it have a target of producing one billion tons of the stuff by 2020. The importing of coal from the USA is particularly interesting. Given the much shorter distances involved, I am surprised India does not import coal from Africa. Given the inevitable fall in oil prices in the years ahead, part of the billions of dollars India will save importing it, could be used to finance establishing the supporting infrastructure for EV. This in turn, would further drive down the amount of oil imported and drastically reduce the air pollution in cities across the country.

From the US Energy Information Administration: Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO) July 2018 U.S. coal exports to Asia, particularly to India, remain strong. Exports to India for the first four months of 2018 were almost 7 MMst, up from 3 MMst in the first quarter of 2017. In 2016, exports to India for the whole year totaled 6 MMst. Several factors could keep exports to India high in the near term. Increased electricity demand, combined with lower hydro generation, has led India’s power ministry to recommend that state governments and private power companies import coal. India’s domestic coal production is currently unable to meet the growing demand in the power sector. India is also proposing a national ban on using petroleum coke as a fuel. The proposal follows a ban ordered by India’s Supreme Court last October on burning petroleum coke in the region around New Delhi. The new ban would still allow petroleum coke to be used in the limestone and cement industries. However, these factors supporting coal exports are expected to diminish. hTTps://www.eia.gov/outlooks/steo/pdf/steo_text.pdf

I suspect recent buying is due to investors taking a second look at the Q4 2018 numbers posted 5/6/2018.

Well to be fair Flowerpothead it'd be good if you could produce some proper analysis instead of bunkum around EVs and lighting up villages. All very well for you to ask but as you are yet to produce any sort of analysis it seems a little rich!

The moron's memory fails him, the share price hit 110p at its high, which he should know if he had access to the data on OPG performance over the years, which has served me handsomely. oil prices are falling, and in the next five years if not less, could hit $50 barrel as EV production takes hold across the world.

Turbo man I absolutely do not have a soft spot for that moron who has been peddling his tripe on OPG for years, all the way from £1 if memory serves me. The latest bulge on EVs takes his bilge to a whole new level of inanity. I’m suffering with you lot and I kick myself for backing this. The new CFO is much better but Gupta is useless and seems to think paying himself £1m a year - on a mkt cap of £55m - is ok!! It just isn’t. Anyhow, it’s a small holding in the grand scheme, I’m off to San Francisco for the rest of the summer so maybe by the time I get back it’ll be MBO’d at 20p. I’ll use some of the proceeds to send Gupta a dead dog!

This has been dropping for 4 years. I’m not even exaggerating. It’s got to turn. My 18p average feels painful enough. It’s been 48p in the last 12 months!

I get the feeling our man in the darkened room has, in reality, a soft spot for our resident optimist and purveyor of flowers. Mind you, these exchanges do help to break the monotony of waiting for some sort of upward action of the OPG share price...

The non holder of shares in OPG speaks from his darkened room, mixing a few words of hope with bigger lumps of pessimism. His suggestion of OPG going private reminds me of those talking out the backs of their heads on the SPL thread, who were promising the same thing. Whilst the latter is fairing very badly, like most things in life its all about timing; I got out when tne share price was over 70p. OPG is a far superior company in a market where demand for its product is ever increasing. The PM has set his coal minister a target of producing 1Bn tons of coal by 2019.

India has the 4th largest coal reserves in the world. What it lacks is modern technology to produce adequate supplies and an efficient rail system to deliver coal to electricity generating plants. Many of the plants are themselves inefficient and run at a loss. OPG operates the most modern and efficient plants, designed to run on coal mined in India and Indonesia. With EV vehicles only being produced in India by 2030, OPG will be ideally placed to meet a growing demand for electricity by industry, a growing population and mass production of EV.

Just noticed coal spiking up again - just done a little digging and here we have the answer - China.Jozohttps://www.spglobal.com/platts/en/market-insights/latest-news/coal/071318-chinese-h1-2018-coal-imports-hit-3-year-high-of-146-million-mtChinese H1 2018 coal imports hit 3-year high of 146 million mtSingapore - China imported 146 million mt of coal and lignite in the first half of 2018, up 9.9% from the previous year and a three-year high, according to preliminary data released Friday by the General Administration of Customs.In June China imported 25.5 million mt of coal, up 17.9% on the year and 14% on the month from 22.3 million mt in May, the data showed.This rebound in coal demand is underpinned by tight supply stemming from ongoing safety and environmental checks at major coal mines amid firm summer electricity demand, ANZ research analysts said in a note Friday."We see the tighter environmental regulations on mining and smelting should keep imports firmer in H2," ANZ analysts said. "However, rising trade tensions could weigh on sentiment."The General Administration of Customs will release the finalized June import data July 23.--Yuchen Huo, huo.yuchen@spglobal.com--Edited by Jonathan Loades-Carter, jonathan.carter@spglobal.com
