CONSOL Energy's Approach to Powering America: Coal and Gas for the Future
A leading diversified energy company in the United States, CONSOL Energy helps generate two-thirds of the nation's power supply. As the top diversified fuel producer in the eastern United States, CONSOL is responsible for mining more high-quality bituminous coal than any other U.S. producer.
CONSOL is one of the largest independent natural gas exploration, development and production companies in the United States. With the acquisition of the exploration and production business of Dominion Resources, CONSOL has access to over 3.7 trillion cubic feet of clean-burning natural gas reserves, including coalbed methane and shale beds. Today the company has nearly 13,000 net producing wells.
From natural gas and coalbed methane to Marcellus and other shale reserves, CONSOL is at the forefront of providing creative, environmentally-sustainable solutions designed to power the United States. In addition to being a leader in energy production, CONSOL is a leader in industry innovation—from developing techniques in the 1980s to extracting CBM from coal seams, which enhances the safety and productivity of mining operations, to operating the largest private research and development facility devoted exclusively to finding cleaner, more efficient ways of producing energy.
With major projects including coal gasification and carbon sequestration underway, CONSOL is using its technical expertise to help solve our nation's energy issues and move America toward energy independence.
