Xinhua News Agency, Taiyuan, June 28 (Reporter Liang Xiaofei) The General Office of the Shanxi Provincial Government recently issued a notice stating that on the basis of safe production, coal production in Shanxi Province will increase by 107 million tons this year compared with 2021, reaching 1.3 billion tons Strive to increase production by another 50 million tons in 2023 compared with this year, reaching 1.35 billion tons in the whole year, giving full play to the role of coal as a bottom-line guarantee and strengthening energy supply.

While consolidating the foundation of existing coal mine production and speeding up the construction progress of coal mines, Shanxi will use market-oriented and legal methods to classify and dispose of 124 long-term suspended coal mines with a total construction scale of 124.3 million tons/year; Promote the resource allocation of 37 consecutive coal mine projects during the “14th Five-Year Plan” period; implement the scale adjustment policy for the 19 coal mines under construction that have been included in the national key supply guarantee list; accelerate the disposal of under-capacity coal mine capacity to make room for the increase in high-quality production capacity ; Speed ​​up the procedures for the overall planning of 12 mining areas and the revision of the planning environmental impact assessment.

The notice requires that all departments at all levels should attach great importance to the safety production of coal mines, coordinately handle the relationship between safety production and increase production and ensure supply, ensure safe investment, further accelerate the intelligent construction and transformation of coal mines, and resolutely put an end to “super-capacity production” Instead of “increasing production and ensuring supply”, the situation of safe production in coal mines will continue to be stable.
