Colombian National Resources, which is owned by Goldman Sachs, had to halt coal exports from Colombia after the country introduced a new environmental law which the company cannot yet comply with, reported Reuters, citing a company source. Colombia's coal exports are expected to tumble by a third or more in early part of this year due to the new law, which banned the old crane and barge method of ship loading due to the pollution it causes, the report added.

17:28 EDTCNXSoutheastern Asset reports 21.1% stake in CONSOL
Southeastern said, "While Southeastern applauds many of the actions of the board and management of the company over the last two years, in our view it is now time for the company to accelerate its efforts to build and realize value per share. Southeastern intends to discuss with third parties as well as management and the board of the company a potential monetization of its E&P assets. We believe these assets alone are worth demonstrably more than the Company’s total equity capitalization today, and they are unique qualitatively in comparison to peers given the Company’s fee ownership of many acres. This monetization could take the form of a spinoff or a sale of these assets. Southeastern will also work to help the company realize value for its many other valuable assets: thermal coal, met coal, pipelines and the Baltimore terminal. As a result of the extremely discounted prices of the company’s equity and debt, Southeastern also intends to discuss bond and share repurchase with the Company. To obtain the flexibility to discuss all options, including but not limited to any of the actions or transactions enumerated in clauses a through j of Item 4 of Schedule 13D, with the company’s management, board of directors and/or with third parties, Southeastern is hereby converting its ownership filing on Schedule 13G to a filing on Schedule 13D."
