In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year.

CONSOL Energy's Fola Operations progresses on Reclamation Efforts

PITTSBURGH, Dec. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CONSOL Energy Inc. (NYSE: CNX) has issued notice under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) of its intent to complete the idle of its Fola operations near Bickmore, W. Va., resulting in a layoff of 131 surface and office employees and 16 employees at the company's Little Eagle Deep Mine. The layoffs will occur during a 14-day period beginning at 12:01 a.m., on February 14, 2013.  Employees were officially briefed on the situation today.

CONSOL Energy attributed this WARN notice to the expected February completion of coal processing and shipping from its preparation plant and recovery of equipment and infrastructure from the Little Eagle Deep Mine. CONSOL Energy anticipates that accelerated reclamation work will continue through mid-summer. Earlier this year, the company announced it would lay-off 318 employees and reassigned the remaining 147 employees from mining to reclamation work. The only coal produced through that transition occurred on the surface and was incidental to reclamation.    

A combination of market conditions and increasing pressure from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which resulted in both increased costs of surface mining and significant uncertainty for the company's power generation customers related to the continued use of Central Appalachian coal were cited as reasons for the idling.

"The decision to idle our Fola operations is a difficult one, but earlier this year we began the effort to manage our inventory and to balance coal production with expected utility demand and shipping schedules," said Nicholas J. DeIuliis, president. "We transitioned to reclamation during that period."

"Unfortunately, the domestic market for coal remains soft due to weak economic growth and activity and the continued inability of our customers to accept committed coal shipments remains a concern," DeIuliis continued. "We are hopeful that coal markets will normalize in the second half of 2013 and allow us to review the status of our Fola operations."
