According to RUSAL's website, Bogatyr Komir plans to increase its coal output to 58 million tonnes through the Severny field reconstruction that is expected to increase the mine capacity to 18 million tonnes per year by 2020. The facility also intends to modernize the Bogatyr mine and switch it to an automated conveyer use. The mine is also currently implementing a number of projects to reduce its impact on the environment. Among other things, the facility is introducing an underground waste disposal system. One dump storage area will remain in the facility, down from seven in the year 2000.[2]

The main consumers of coal from Bogatyr Komir mines is the Ekibastuz-1 power station and Reftinskaya GRES power station, the share of shipments to which is more than 45%.[3]
