CONSOL Energy is an American energy company based in Cecil Township, Pennsylvania. It is considered to be the leading producer of high-BTU bituminous coal in the US.
The company is publicly listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), under the stock ticker symbol ‘CNX’.
It is primarily active in Appalachia (Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, Ohio, and Tennessee).
The company has stated that its current focus is on the development of its Marcellus Shale acreage (where it has the rights to extract natural gas in 446,000 net acres) and the exploration and development of its Utica Shale acreage (where it controls approximately 109,000 net acres).
CONSOL Energy is comprised of two primary business divisions: coal mining and oil/gas exploration and production (E&P).
The E&P business segment focuses on the production, processing and acquisition of natural gas properties and oil in the Appalachian Basin.
