Penn Virginia Resource (PVR) engages in the management of coal and natural resource properties and the gathering and processing of natural gas in the U.S. Broadly, its operations are structured into three segments: coal and natural resource management contributing majority of the revenues, and natural gas midstream.

The company recorded total revenue of $253.5 million for the first quarter of 2011, up 22.8% from the year-ago period. Net income for the quarter was reported at $8.2 million, or 17 cents per share.

In the natural gas segment, daily throughput volumes surged 36.4% to 420 million cubic feet (MMcf/d).

The company recently announced the acquisition of a natural gas gathering system and processing facility in the Texas Panhandle area for $11.4 million. The acquired assets comprise of a 20 MMcf/d cryogenic processing facility and an approximate 15-mile gathering system in Lipscomb and Hemphill Counties, both connected to PVRs' existing Panhandle Systems and strategically located to supply active producers in the Granite Wash formation.
