Walter Energy is a producer of coal, coke, and natural gas. We are headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama. We are a leading producer and exporter of metallurgical coal for the global steel industry from mines located in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. We also produce thermal and industrial bituminous coal, anthracite, coke and related products, as well as coal bed methane gas (natural gas).
Our strategy is to focus principally on the development of our metallurgical coal resources. We believe that long term global economic growth supports a growing demand for steel, and for the metallurgical coal needed to make steel. Our North American reserves of metallurgical coal serve both the Atlantic and Pacific markets.
