Development and Reform Commission: accelerate the release of high-quality coal production capacity
Recently, the National Development and Reform Commission issued the ''Notice on Doing a Good Job in the Guarantee of Coal, Electricity, Oil and Gas Transportation during the Peak Summer in 2018 ''. The notice pointed out that the situation of coal, electricity, oil and gas transportation guarantee during the peak summer this year is severe, and the regional nature during the peak summer period The tight supply and demand situation still exists. We should speed up the release of high-quality coal production capacity, do a good job of stable power generation and supply, and pragmatically promote the coal-power joint venture.
The notice pointed out that during the peak summer period this year, the supply and demand of coal, electricity, oil and gas transportation was generally stable, but as my country's economy and society entered a stage of high-quality development, the people's growing needs for a better life continued to increase, and it was proposed to ensure the supply of coal, electricity, oil and gas transportation. With higher requirements, regional and time-based tight supply and demand will still appear. In terms of coal, the demand for thermal coal increased significantly during the peak summer period, and there may be tight supply and demand in some areas and individual periods. In terms of electricity, the electricity consumption of the whole society has maintained a relatively high growth rate this year. During the peak summer period, the supply and demand in parts of North China, East China, and Central China are tight during peak hours, and there may be a power supply gap in some areas. In terms of natural gas, affected by factors such as the continued high demand for industry and power generation, the supply and demand of natural gas is not weak in the off-season. During the peak summer period, in order to ensure the supply of gas in winter and increase the injection of gas storage in summer, local supply is still difficult to fully meet the rapid growth of demand.
The notice pointed out that, first, to accelerate the release of high-quality coal production capacity. We will conscientiously implement the requirements for reduction and replacement linked to increase or decrease, speed up the construction progress and formalities of coal mines with high-quality production capacity, implement technological transformation and reduction and reorganization in an orderly manner, and realize the production of coal mines in accordance with laws and regulations as soon as possible. Encourage production coal mines with good storage conditions, guaranteed safety, and high level of mechanization, re-approve production capacity through capacity replacement, continue to increase effective supply, and provide as many medium and long-term contract resources for thermal coal as possible. To carry out the classification and disposal of coal mines with work stoppage, for the conditions in strict accordance with the procedures to resume production, for long-term work stoppage, resume production and construction hopeless "zombie enterprises", speed up the reorganization and integration and market clearance. The second is to do a good job of stable power supply. It is necessary to sign more medium-and long-term contracts for thermal coal and strictly perform them, strengthen equipment operation, maintenance and management, and ensure stable supply of units. The third is to increase the organization of oil transportation. Four is to promote natural gas reserves and infrastructure construction. Fifth, coordinate and guarantee the transportation of key materials. Efforts will be made to increase the railway capacity to Qinhuangdao and other major coal transit ports to ensure that the coal stock in the port is at a high level. Six is to ensure the security of supply. At the same time, it is necessary to strengthen the construction of peak shaving capacity, promote the dynamic balance of supply and demand, strengthen the construction of natural gas peak shaving capacity, use gas in a reasonable and orderly manner, strengthen the construction of power system peak shaving capacity, and implement the coal inventory management system to ensure the supply of thermal coal.
The notice stressed that it is necessary to pragmatically promote the joint venture of coal and electricity. All regions and enterprises should fully understand the significance of coal power joint venture in solving the problem of "coal power top cow", and further promote it at all levels. It is necessary to combine the reform of state-owned enterprises, the development of mixed ownership, coal production capacity reduction and mergers and reorganizations, encourage coal companies to run power plants, power generation companies to run coal mines, and coal and power generation companies to participate in each other and exchange shares to develop coal-power joint ventures. Relevant regions and departments should effectively implement the relevant support policies for coal and electricity joint venture projects, give priority to planning approval, release of high-quality production capacity, give priority to the arrangement of capacity, give priority to the implementation of debt disposal and financing support policies, and give priority to the relevant policy support pilot.
