Alpha Natural Resources Inc. Units Win Court Ruling Against Texas Eastern Transmission LP over Emerald Mine Plan

A Pennsylvania judge on Aug. 9 ruled in favor of Alpha Natural Resources Inc. units in a long-running dispute with Texas Eastern Transmission LP, allowing the coal producer to mine a new section at its Emerald operation in southwestern Pennsylvania. President Judge William Nalitz of the Court of Common Pleas of Greene County, Pa., said in his order that Alpha unit Emerald Coal Resources LP can mine the entire D District without leaving any coal to support Texas Eastern pipelines. In a 2011 lawsuit, Emerald alleged that Texas Eastern's pipelines were lacking appropriate subsidence mitigation measures, preventing Emerald from mining coal in the D District. Emerald said its property rights in the subsurface coal estates are first-in-time and superior to any rights of Texas Eastern as it relates to its pipelines. Emerald filed an injunction against Texas Eastern in May in an attempt to force the company to finish pipeline mitigation work in an area above the mine. Emerald said at the time that Texas Eastern knew of the mine plan for six years, and mitigation work needed to be completed before mining could begin in the next area of reserves.
