Westmoreland Coal confirmed it will be converting its Jewett lignite operation in Texas to a reclamation phase after utility NRG Texas Power opted to cancel its supply agreement with the mine two years early. Multiyear reclamation at the 35,000-acre surface operation southeast of Dallas will commence once the deal terminates on December 31. NRG officials told Bloomberg they will be moving to a cleaner burning coal from the Powder River Basin (PRB) in Wyoming.
