DENVER, July 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- (Nasdaq: HNRG) -- 2015 brought mild weather and a glut of low priced nat gas.  Most of our customers were surprised by these conditions and purchased too much coal for 2015.  In an effort to assist our customers balance their current needs and to secure long-term fuel supply, we agreed to modify several of our contracts.

To implement these changes, production at our Oaktown Complex will be increased and production at our Carlisle Mine will be decreased.  For the next couple of years, we expect Oaktown to represent more than 90% of our production. Not all changes are finalized, but we anticipate our contracted position through 2020 will be as follows:

A large number of employees will transfer from Carlisle to Oaktown.  Unfortunately, a reduction in force of 175 employees is necessary, effective today.  We thank these employees for their service and dedication.
