NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- CONSOL Energy  (CNX - Get Report) stock is down 9.69% to $10.53 in early afternoon trading on Tuesday as oil prices drop. 

Oil prices are declining after Kuwaiti Oil Minister Anas al-Saleh said the country would only agree to lower oil production if all major oil producers also agreed to the freeze, Reuters reports.

OPEC members are considering a freeze on oil production in order to boost prices. 

"The market has run a little bit too far too fast," Frank Klumpp, oil analyst at Landesbank Baden-Wuerttemberg, told Reuters. "Expectations regarding production cuts are high, and so is the positioning of most traders and hedge funds. The potential for a surprise seems to be on the downside now."

Crude oil (WTI) is falling by 3.35% to $36.63 per barrel this morning and Brent crude is dropping by 2.62% to $39.77 per barrel this afternoon, according to the index.

CONSOL Energy is a Canonsburg, PA-based integrated energy company.

Separately, TheStreet Ratings Team has a "Sell" rating with a score of D on the stock.
