Background

The East Ural coal terminal was initially used to ship fertilizers, and began operations in 1998. The terminal began handling coal in 2012. After switching from fertilizer to coal, the terminal's cargo volumes increased dramatically, from 400,000 tonnes in 2012 to 3.8 million tonnes in 2015. Coal is supplied to the terminal from the Yakut and Kuzbass mines and is exported to South Korea (48%), Malaysia and Taiwan (33%), Japan (12%), China (5%) and other countries of the Asia-Pacific region.[1] The port is operated by LLC Vostochno-Uralskiy Terminal, which is majority owned by OOO Transhimexport.[2]

The East Ural coal terminal is one of the few terminals in the Nakhodka and Vostochny region that uses a closed coal shipment process. The terminal constructed storage warehouses when it was handling fertilizer, and continued to use the warehouses after shipping to coal.[3] Nevertheless, the terminal was found to be in violation of several environmental regulations in 2021.[4]

In 2019, the terminal handled 4.5 million tonnes of coal.[5]
