CONSOL Energy Inc. is the largest producer of high-Btu bituminous coal in the United States. CONSOL Energy has 20 bituminous coal mining complexes in six states. In addition, the company is a majority shareholder in one of the largest U.S. producers of coalbed methane, CNX Gas Corporation.

Through expansion and acquisitions, CONSOL Energy has evolved from a single-fuel mining company into a multi-energy producer of coal, gas and electricity. CONSOL produces both high-Btu coal and gas, which collectively fuels two-thirds of all U.S. power generation, from reserves located mainly east of the Mississippi River. CONSOL Energy is a major fuel supplier to the electric power industry in the northeast quadrant of the United States. In addition, CONSOL Energy has expanded the use of its vast property holdings by brokering various industrial and retail development projects and overseeing timber sale and forestry management activities both in the U.S. and abroad. Consol Energy also maintains the largest private research and development facilities devoted exclusively to coal and energy utilization and production.
