Consol to showcase coal-to-gas move after new U.S. EPA rules

June 11 (Reuters) – As the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency rolls out tough new rules designed to slash power plant
emissions, Consol Energy Inc is showcasing its
transformation from a coal miner to a producer of
cleaner-burning natural gas.

Founded when Abraham Lincoln was president, Consol was once
one of the world’s largest coal producers, with a niche natural
gas operation. Last year it sold five large coal mines to Murray
Energy Corp as part of a plan to flip that dynamic on its head.
