Consol Energy Inc. said Monday it offered voluntary buyouts to 213 salaried employees that have 30 or more years of service with the coal and natural gas producer.

The figure represents 2.3 percent of the Cecil-based company's workforce, spokeswoman Lynn Seay said.

The voluntary separation offer doesn't include employees at coal mines and the Fairmont Supply business. No other details were available.

Consol reported an $11 million loss for the July through September quarter due to coal mines being idled in light of a weaker market, plus conveyor belt problems at two Greene County mines.
