17:08 EDTCNXCONSOL Energy to lay off 147 workers
CONSOL Energy has issued notice under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act 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 on December 14. 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, 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.

06:55 EDTCNXCONSOL reports Q4 Coal Division production 8M tons
During Q4, CONSOL's Coal Division produced 8.0M tons, which was in-line with previous quarter's guidance, despite a roof fall on a longwall at Bailey Mine and continued geological conditions at Enlow Fork, which ultimately resulted in 10 days of reduced production. The Bailey Mine produced 2.7M tons in Q4, compared to 2.8M tons produced in the year-earlier quarter. The Enlow Fork Mine produced 2.6M tons in Q4, which is flat when compared to the year-earlier quarter. Despite difficult geological conditions, Enlow Fork managed to record total unit costs of $38.25 per ton, which is the lowest unit cost across the Coal Division. Enlow Fork's 2014 annual production was 10.6M tons. The Harvey Mine produced 1.1M tons in Q4. The Harvey Mine started longwall operations in late March of 2014, and CONSOL expects normal levels of longwall production moving forward. The Buchanan Mine continued to operate on a reduced schedule of two shifts per day and produced 1M tons during Q4, compared to 1.2M tons produced in the year-earlier quarter. The reduced schedule allowed the mine to optimize its cost structure for decreased levels of production, which is reflected in much lower all-in unit costs during Q4 of $53.96 per ton, compared to $66.60 per ton in the year-earlier quarter. The Buchanan Mine is able to quickly ramp up to the full production capacity rate of 5.0M tons per year when market conditions warrant. During the quarter, and in conjunction with the reduced operating schedule, CONSOL has continued maintenance work on the production shaft, which is on-track for completion by late 2015, or early 2016.
