Wyoming Coal Production Nears Record Low

Coal Production continues to fall in Wyoming, hitting a nearly record low in 2016. For the first time in almost 20 years, the state’s coal production fell below 300 million tons, with Wyoming’s Powder River Basin producing its lowest coal total since 1998. Production in the Powder River Basin fell by approximately 22% when compared to levels in 2015. The decline represents the largest ever-single year drop in production for the basin.
