EIA: "In 2010, Australia was the world's largest coal exporter and fourth-largest liquefied natural gas exporter. Australia is one of the few countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) that is a significant net hydrocarbon exporter, sending abroad about two-thirds of its total energy production. Energy exports accounted for 34% of total commodity export revenues. At $36 billion in 2010, coal represented over half of energy export revenue. Australia produced 449 million short tons (MMst) of coal in 2010—about 40% of U.S. production—making Australia the world's fourth-largest coal producer, after China, the United States, and India. But Australia is the world's largest coal exporter, exporting about 70% of its coal production or nearly 300 MMst in 2010. Australia accounted for almost one-third of bituminous coal exports worldwide in 2010; a large share of this coal consisted of coking coal used for steel manufacture."
