Consol Energy Inc. lost $24.9 million, or 11 cents per share, during the past three months, the Cecil-based company reported today. That widens the loss from $12.5 million, or 5 cents per share, during the second quarter last year.
The company continued to grow its oil and gas production and decrease what it costs Consol to drill a Marcellus Shale well. Production of shale gas more than doubled since the same time last year.
Revenue for the quarter was $937 million, up from $828 million during the comparable period in 2013.
The company’s president and CEO, Nick DeIuliis, said the company is planning to sell $1 billion worth of non-core assets in the next five years.
