CONSOL Energy Monetizes Additional Non-Producing Assets For $127 Million; Total Asset Sales For 2012 Exceed $350 Million

In the second transaction, effective December 20, 2012, CONSOL Energy agreed to sell its interest in other coal assets, subject to certain conditions, in Alberta, for $24 million. The buyer is Riversdale Resources, headquartered in Sydney, Australia. The primary asset is Grassy Mountain Surface Mine, where CONSOL's share of the recoverable reserves is estimated to be 30 million tons. CONSOL anticipates closing this transaction during the second quarter of 2013.

"These two sales represent a continuation of our successful strategy of pulling value forward and focusing on our near-term opportunity set," commented J. Brett Harvey, CONSOL Energy Chairman and CEO.

The $127 million in cash from these sales, when combined with the previous 2012 asset sales of $224 million, means that CONSOL Energy sold assets in excess of $350 million during the year. None of the assets sold in 2012 generated revenue during the year. The company expects to sell additional non-core assets in 2013.
