Political situation in Mongolia, satisfied 29%

 

Billionaire Oleg Deripaska’s En+ Group Ltd., OAO Russian Railways and Japanese trading companies are bidding for the Tavan Tolgoi coalfield in Mongolia, one of the largest untapped deposits of the steelmaking material.

En+ delivered an offer to the Mongolian government last week to take part in developing the project, which has more than 6 billion metric tons of coal reserves, Andrei Petrushinin, a spokesman for the company in Moscow, said by telephone today.

Russian Railways and Siberian Coal Energy Co., the nation’s biggest producer of coal for power, also bid as part of a group of investors, said people at the companies who declined to be identified in line with internal policy. The group of 11 includes Japan’s Sumitomo Corp., Marubeni Corp. and Itochu Corp., Russian Railways’ press office said by e-mail.

Sumitomo and Marubeni officials didn’t respond to calls to their press departments, while an Itochu official was unable to comment on the matter outside of normal office hours in Tokyo.

Mongolia, a mineral-rich country between China and Russia, is seeking developers to help it feed demand for raw materials from its neighbors, while maintaining control over the deposits. China’s rising coal purchases will mainly come from Indonesia and Mongolia because of cheaper prices, according to David Fang, a director at China Coal Transport and Distribution Association.

Coal imports to China, the world’s largest user, may rise 9 percent to 180 million tons this year, according to the median estimate of seven analysts in a Bloomberg survey conducted between Jan. 26 and Jan. 28. China boosted shipments into the country by 31 percent to a record 165 million tons in 2010.

Vale SA and ArcelorMittal are among bidders for Tavan Tolgoi, Reuters said today, citing an unidentified per. on.
