CNX Resources released the following information regarding its Shaw 1G Utica shale well in Washington Township, Westmoreland County, PA:

"As part of our ongoing investigation into a pressure anomaly that was recently observed on the Shaw 1G well, CNX has begun preparations to remediate the well and arrest the subsurface flow of gas.

"We have and continue to work in close coordination with the Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County (MAWC) and all appropriate state and local stakeholders to ensure the situation is addressed in a safe and environmentally compliant manner. There have been no injuries and no impact to the local community or the environment. We immediately activated appropriate resources and continue taking measures to safeguard Beaver Run Reservoir and surrounding communities. Public health and safety are our top priorities.

"Company personnel and specialized consultants are monitoring existing nearby gas wells and are continuing to manage any potential gas communication to those wells.

"All frac operations on the Shaw pad remain suspended. We will provide further updates as appropriate."
