Proved reserves - Quantities of oil, natural gas, and NGLs which, by analysis of geological and engineering data, can be estimated with reasonable certainty to be economically producible from a given date forward, from known reservoirs, and under existing economic conditions, operating methods and government regulations prior to the time at which contracts providing the right to operate expire, unless evidence indicates that renewal is reasonably certain, regardless of whether deterministic or probabilistic methods are used for the estimation.
Proved developed reserves - Proved reserves which can be expected to be recovered through existing wells with existing equipment and operating methods.
Proved undeveloped reserves (PUDs) - Proved reserves that can be estimated with reasonable certainty to be recovered from new wells on undrilled proved acreage or from existing wells where a relatively major expenditure is required for completion.
Reservoir - A porous and permeable underground formation containing a natural accumulation of producible natural gas and/or oil that is confined by impermeable rock or water barriers and is separate from other reservoirs.

CNX RESOURCES CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Dollars in thousands, except per share data)

NOTE 1—BASIS OF PRESENTATION:

The accompanying Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for future periods.

The Consolidated Balance Sheet at December 31, 2017 has been derived from the Audited Consolidated Financial Statements at that date but does not include all the notes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. For further information, refer to the Consolidated Financial Statements and related notes for the year ended December 31, 2017 included in CNX Resources Corporation's ("CNX," the "Company," "we," "us," or "our") Annual Report on Form 10-K as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 7, 2018.

Certain amounts in prior periods have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation. On November 28, 2017, the Company spun-off the coal operations previously held by CNX, which were comprised of the Pennsylvania Mining Complex, Baltimore Marine Terminal, its direct and indirect ownership interest in CONSOL Coal Resources LP, formerly known as CNXC Coal Resources LP, and other related coal assets. The financial position, results of operations and cash flows of the coal operations are reflected as discontinued operations for all periods presented through the date of the spin-off. See Note 5 - Discontinued Operations for further details regarding the spin-off.

The Consolidated Balance Sheet at June 30, 2018 reflects the full consolidation of CNX Gathering LLC's assets and liabilities as a result of the acquisition by CNX Gas Company LLC (CNX Gas), an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of CNX of NBL Midstream, LLC's interest on January 3, 2018 (See Note 6 - Acquisitions and Dispositions for more information). The purchase accounting remains preliminary as contemplated by Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and, as a result, there may be upon further review future changes to the value, as well as allocation, of the acquired assets and liabilities, associated amortization expense, goodwill and the gain on the previously held equity interest. These changes may be material.

NOTE 2—EARNINGS PER SHARE:

Basic earnings per share are computed by dividing net income attributable to CNX shareholders by the weighted average shares outstanding during the reporting period. Dilutive earnings per share are computed similarly to basic earnings per share, except that the weighted average shares outstanding are increased to include additional shares from stock options, performance stock options, restricted stock units and performance share units, if dilutive. The number of additional shares is calculated by assuming that outstanding stock options and performance share options were exercised, that outstanding restricted stock units and performance share units were released, and that the proceeds from such activities were used to acquire shares of common stock at the average market price during the reporting period. CNX Midstream Partners LP's (CNXM) dilutive units did not have a material impact on the Company's earnings per share calculations for the period from January 3, 2018 through June 30, 2018.

The table below sets forth the share-based awards that have been excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per share because their effect would be antidilutive:

NOTE 4—REVENUE FROM CONTRACTS WITH CUSTOMERS:

On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers and all the related amendments (“new revenue standard”) using the modified retrospective method, which did not result in any changes to previously reported financial information. The updates related to the new revenue standard were applied only to contracts that were not complete as of January 1, 2018.

Revenue from Contracts with Customers

Revenues are recognized when control of the promised goods or services is transferred to the Company’s customers, in an amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services. The Company has elected to exclude all taxes from the measurement of transaction price.

Nature of Performance Obligations

At contract inception, the Company assesses the goods and services promised in its contracts with customers and identifies a performance obligation for each promised good or service that is distinct. To identify the performance obligations, the Company considers all of the goods or services promised in the contract regardless of whether they are explicitly stated or are implied by customary business practices.

For natural gas, NGLs and oil, and purchased gas revenue, the Company generally considers the delivery of each unit (MMBtu or Bbl) to be a separate performance obligation that is satisfied upon delivery. Payment terms for these contracts typically require payment within 25 days of the end of the calendar month in which the hydrocarbons are delivered. A significant number of these contracts contain variable consideration because the payment terms refer to market prices at future delivery dates. In these situations, the Company has not identified a standalone selling price because the terms of the variable payments relate specifically to the Company’s efforts to satisfy the performance obligations. A portion of the contracts contain fixed consideration (i.e. fixed price contracts or contracts with a fixed differential to NYMEX or index prices). The fixed consideration is allocated to each performance obligation on a relative standalone selling price basis, which requires judgment from management. For these contracts, the Company generally concludes that the fixed price or fixed differentials in the contracts are representative of the standalone selling price. Revenue associated with natural gas, NGLs and oil as presented on the accompanying Consolidated Statement of Income represent the Company’s share of revenues net of royalties and excluding revenue interests owned by others. When selling natural gas, NGLs and oil on behalf of royalty owners or working interest owners, the Company is acting as an agent and thus reports the revenue on a net basis.

Midstream revenue consists of revenues generated from natural gas gathering activities. The gas gathering services are interruptible in nature and include charges for the volume of gas actually gathered and do not guarantee access to the system. Volumetric based fees are based on actual volumes gathered. The Company generally considers the interruptible gathering of each unit (MMBtu) of natural gas represent a separate performance obligation. Payment terms for these contracts typically require payment within 25 days of the end of the calendar month in which the hydrocarbons are gathered.




12




Transaction price allocated to remaining performance obligations

Accounting Standards Codifiation (ASC) 606 requires that the Company disclose the aggregate amount of transaction price that is allocated to performance obligations that have not yet been satisfied. However, the guidance provides certain practical expedients that limit this requirement, including when variable consideration is allocated entirely to a wholly unsatisfied performance obligation or to a wholly unsatisfied promise to transfer a distinct good or service that forms part of a series.

A significant portion of our natural gas, NGLs and oil and purchased gas revenue is short-term in nature with a contract term of one year or less. For those contracts, we have utilized the practical expedient in ASC 606-10-50-14 exempting the Company from disclosure of the transaction price allocated to remaining performance obligations if the performance obligation is part of a contract that has an original expected duration of one year or less.

For revenue associated with contract terms greater than one year, a significant portion of the consideration in those contracts is variable in nature and the Company allocates the variable consideration in its contract entirely to each specific performance obligation to which it relates. Therefore, any remaining variable consideration in the transaction price is allocated entirely to wholly unsatisfied performance obligations. As such, the Company has not disclosed the value of unsatisfied performance obligations pursuant to the practical expedient.

For revenue associated with contract terms greater than one year with a fixed price component, the aggregate amount of the transaction price allocated to remaining performance obligations was $185,984 as of June 30, 2018. The Company expects to recognize net revenue of $55,304 in the next 12 months and $42,227 over the following 12 months, with the remainder recognized thereafter.

For revenue associated with our midstream contracts, which also have terms greater than one year, we have utilized the practical expedient in ASC 606-10-50-14 exempting the Company from disclosure of the transaction price allocated to remaining performance obligations if the variable consideration is allocated entirely to a wholly unsatisfied performance obligation. Under our midstream contracts, the interruptible gathering of each unit of natural gas represents a separate performance obligation; therefore, future volumes are wholly unsatisfied and disclosure of the transaction price allocated to remaining performance obligations is not required.

Prior-period performance obligations

We record revenue in the month production is delivered to the purchaser. However, settlement statements for certain natural gas and NGL revenue may not be received for 30 to 90 days after the date production is delivered, and as a result, we are required to estimate the amount of production delivered to the purchaser and the price that will be received for the sale of the product. We record the differences between our estimates and the actual amounts received in the month that payment is received from the purchaser. We have existing internal controls for our revenue estimation process and related accruals, and any identified differences between our revenue estimates and actual revenue received historically have not been significant. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, revenue recognized in the reporting period related to performance obligations satisfied in prior reporting periods was not material.

The disaggregated revenue information corresponds with the Company’s segment reporting.

Contract balances

We invoice customers once our performance obligations have been satisfied, at which point payment is unconditional. Accordingly, our contracts with customers do not give rise to contract assets or liabilities under ASC 606. The Company has no contract assets recognized from the costs to obtain or fulfill a contract with a customer.

The opening and closing balances of the Company’s receivables related to contracts with customers were $156,817 and $132,016, respectively. Included in the opening balance are receivables related to the January 3, 2018 acquisition of $9,353 (see Note 6 - Acquisitions and Dispositions for more information).

NOTE 5—DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS:

On November 28, 2017, CNX announced that it had completed the tax-free spin-off of its coal business resulting in two independent, publicly traded companies: (i) a coal company, CONSOL Energy, formerly known as CONSOL Mining Corporation and (ii) CNX, a natural gas exploration and production company. Following the separation, CONSOL Energy and its subsidiaries hold the coal assets previously held by CNX, including its Pennsylvania Mining Complex, Baltimore Marine Terminal, its direct and indirect ownership interest in CONSOL Coal Resources LP, formerly known as CNX Coal Resources LP, and other related coal assets previously held by CNX. As of the close of business on November 28, 2017, CNX's shareholders received one share of CONSOL Energy common stock for every eight shares of CNX's common stock held as of November 15, 2017. The coal business has been reclassified to discontinued operations for all periods presented.

NOTE 6—ACQUISITIONS AND DISPOSITIONS:

On May 2, 2018 CNX closed on an Asset Exchange Agreement (the “AEA”), with HG Energy II Appalachia, LLC (“HG Energy”), pursuant to which, among other things, HG Energy (i) paid to CNX approximately $7,000 and (ii) assigned to CNX certain undeveloped Marcellus and Utica acreage in Southwest Pennsylvania, in exchange for CNX (x) assigning its interest in certain non-core midstream assets and surface acreage and (y) releasing certain HG Energy oil and gas acreage from dedication under a gathering agreement that is partially held, indirectly, by CNX. In connection with the transaction, CNX also agreed to certain transactions with CNXM, including the amendment of the existing gas gathering agreement between CNX and CNXM to increase the existing well commitment by an additional forty wells. The net gain on the sale was $286 and is included in the Gain on Asset Sales line of the Consolidated Statements of Income.

As a result of the AEA, CNX determined that the carrying value of a portion of the customer relationship intangible assets that were acquired in connection with the Midstream acquisition discussed below (see also Note 19 - Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets) exceeded their fair value, and recognized an impairment of approximately $18,650 which is included in the Impairment of Other Intangible Assets line of the Consolidated Statements of Income.
On March 30, 2018, CNX Gas completed the sale of substantially all of its shallow oil and gas assets and certain Coalbed Methane (CBM) assets in Pennsylvania and West Virginia for $89,296 in cash consideration. In connection with the sale, the buyer assumed approximately $196,514 of asset retirement obligations. The net gain on the sale was $4,751 and is included in the Gain on Asset Sales line of the Consolidated Statements of Income.
    
On December 14, 2017, CNX Gas entered into a purchase agreement with NBL Midstream, LLC (Noble), pursuant to which CNX Gas acquired Noble’s 50% membership interest in CONE Gathering LLC (CNX Gathering), for a cash purchase price of $305,000 and the mutual release of all outstanding claims (the "Midstream Acquisition"). CNX Gathering owns a 100% membership interest in CONE Midstream GP LLC (the general partner), which is the general partner of CONE Midstream Partners LP (CNXM or the Partnership), which is a publicly traded master limited partnership formed in May 2014 by CNX Gas and Noble. In conjunction with the Midstream Acquisition, which closed on January 3, 2018, the general partner, the Partnership and CONE Gathering LLC changed their names to CNX Midstream GP LLC, CNX Midstream Partners LP, and CNX Gathering LLC, respectively.

Prior to the Midstream Acquisition, the Company accounted for its 50% interest in CNX Gathering LLC as an equity method investment as the Company had the ability to exercise significant influence, but not control, over the operating and financial policies of the midstream operations. In conjunction with the Midstream Acquisition, the Company obtained a controlling interest in CNX Gathering LLC and, through CNX Gathering's ownership of the general partner, control over the Partnership. Accordingly, the Midstream Acquisition has been accounted for as a business combination using the acquisition method of accounting pursuant to ASC Topic 805, Business Combinations, or ASC 805. ASC 805 requires that, in such business combination achieved in stages (or step acquisition), previously held equity interests are remeasured at fair value and any difference between the fair value and the carrying value of the equity interest held be recognized as a gain or loss on the statement of income.


15




The fair value assigned to the previously held equity interest in CNX Gathering and CNXM for purposes of calculating the gain or loss was $799,033 and was determined using the income approach, based on a discounted cash flow methodology. The resulting gain on remeasurement to fair value of the previously held equity interest in CNX Gathering and CNXM of $623,663 is included in the Gain on Previously Held Equity Interest line of the Consolidated Statements of Income.

The fair values of the previously held equity interests were based on inputs that are not observable in the market and therefore represent Level 3 inputs (See Note 14 - Fair Value of Financial Instruments). These fair values were measured using valuation techniques that convert future cash flows into a single discounted amount. Significant inputs to the valuation included estimates of: (i) gathering volumes; (ii) future operating costs; and (iii) a market-based weighted average cost of capital. These inputs required significant judgments and estimates by management, are still under review, and are subject to change. These inputs have a significant impact on the valuation of the previously held equity interests and future changes may occur.

The estimated fair value of midstream facilities and equipment, generally consisting of pipeline systems and compression stations, were estimated using the cost approach. Significant unobservable inputs in the estimate of fair value include management's assumptions about the replacement costs for similar assets, the relative age of the acquired assets and any potential economic or functional obsolescence associated with the acquired assets. As a result, the estimated fair value of the midstream facilities and equipment represents a Level 3 fair value measurement.

As part of the preliminary purchase price allocation, the Company identified intangible assets for customer relationships with third party customers. The fair value of the identified intangible assets was determined using the income approach which requires a forecast of the expected future cash flows generated and an estimated market-based weighted average cost of capital. Significant unobservable inputs in the determination of fair value include future revenue estimates, future cost assumptions, and estimated customer retention rates. As a result, the estimated fair value of the identified intangible assets represents a Level 3 fair value measurement. Differences between the preliminary purchase price allocation and the final purchase price allocation may change the amount of intangible assets and goodwill ultimately recognized in conjunction with the Midstream Acquisition.
    
The noncontrolling interest in the acquired business is comprised of the limited partner units in CNXM, which were not acquired by the Company. The CNXM limited partner units are actively traded on the New York Stock Exchange, and were valued based on observable market prices as of the transaction date and therefore represent a Level 1 fair value measurement.

Allocation of Purchase Price (Midstream Acquisition)

The following table summarizes the purchase price and estimated values of assets and liabilities assumed based on the fair value as of January 3, 2018, with any excess of the purchase price over the estimated fair value of the identified net assets acquired recorded as goodwill. The preliminary purchase price allocation will be subject to further refinement, which may result in material changes.

During June 2018, a plan amendment was announced that freezes the benefits for the Defined Contribution Restoration Plan effective July 1, 2018. Employees hired after this date will not be eligible for this benefit plan. In addition, current participants will receive no further compensation credits after that date, with the last award year being 2017. Annual interest credits will continue to be made in accordance with the terms of the plan. This amendment triggered a curtailment gain of $416. The curtailment resulted in a plan remeasurement, decreasing the plan liabilities by $2,235 at June 30, 2018.

NOTE 8—INCOME TAXES:

The effective tax rates for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 were (102.7)% and 23.1%, respectively. The effective tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2018 differs from the U.S. federal statutory rate of 21% primarily due to a benefit from the filing of a Federal 10-year net operating loss ("NOL") carryback which resulted in the Company being able to utilize previously valued tax attributes at a tax rate differential of 14%, as well as non-controlling interest. The benefits were partially offset by increases for both state income taxes and state valuation allowances.

The effective tax rates for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 were 32.2% and 25.5%, respectively. The effective rate for the six months ended June 30, 2017 differs from the U.S. federal statutory rate of 35% primarily due to state income taxes and equity compensation.

On December 22, 2017, the United States enacted the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the "Act") which, among other things, lowered the U.S. Federal corporate income tax rate from 35% to 21%, repealed the corporate alternative minimum tax ("AMT"), and provided for a refund of previously accrued AMT credits. The Company recorded a net tax benefit to reflect the impact of the Act as of December 31, 2017, as it is required to reflect the change in the period in which the law is enacted. Largely, the benefits recorded in the period ending December 31, 2017 related to the Act are in recognition of the revaluation of deferred tax assets and liabilities, a benefit of $115,291, and a benefit for the reversal of a valuation allowance previously recorded against a deferred tax asset for AMT credits which are now refundable, a benefit of $154,384.

The net benefits for the Act, as recorded as provisional amounts, as of June 30, 2018 represent the Company's best estimate using information available to the Company as of June 30, 2018. The Company anticipates U.S. regulatory agencies will issue further regulations over the next year which may alter this estimate. The Company is still evaluating, among other things, the application of limitations for executive compensation related to contracts existing prior to November 2, 2017, and provisions in the Act addressing the deductibility of interest expense after January 1, 2018. The Company will refine its estimates to incorporate new or better information as it comes available through the filing date of its 2017 U.S. income tax returns in the fourth quarter of 2018. During the second quarter, the company filed a Federal NOL carryback resulting in a financial statement benefit of $20,000 through the realization of the Federal NOLs at a 35% tax rate as a carryback versus the current 21% tax rate as a carryforward.

The total amount of uncertain tax positions at June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017 were $39,953 and $37,813, respectively. If these uncertain tax positions were recognized, approximately $31,516 and $29,376 would affect CNX's effective tax rate at June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively. There was a $2,140 change to the unrecognized tax benefits during the six months ended June 30, 2018.

CNX recognizes accrued interest related to uncertain tax positions in interest expense. As of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the Company reported an accrued interest liability relating to uncertain tax positions of $814 and $644, respectively, in Other Liabilities on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. The accrued interest liability includes $169 of accrued interest expense that is reflected in the Company's Consolidated Statements of Income for the six months ended June 30, 2018.


18



CNX recognizes penalties accrued related to uncertain tax positions in its income tax expense. As of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, CNX had no accrued liabilities for tax penalties related to uncertain tax positions.
CNX and its subsidiaries file federal income tax returns with the United States and tax returns within various states and Canadian jurisdictions. With few exceptions, the Company is no longer subject to United States federal, state, local, or non-U.S. income tax examinations by tax authorities for years before 2014. The Joint Committee on Taxation concluded its review of the audit of tax year 2015 on March 21, 2018. The audit resulted in a $108,651 reduction to CNX's net operating loss, primarily due to a reduction in the depreciation as an offset to the bonus depreciation taken in the 2010-2013 IRS audit. There was no cash impact from the audit.

Property, Plant and Equipment Held for Sale

CNX is party to an industry participation agreement (referred to as a "joint venture" or "JV") that provided drilling and completion carries for the Company's retained interests. This joint development agreement is with Hess Ohio Developments, LLC (Hess) with respect to approximately 125 thousand net Utica Shale acres in Ohio in which each party has a 50% undivided interest. Under the agreement, as amended, Hess was obligated to pay a total of approximately $335,000 in the form of a 50% drilling carry of certain CNX working interest obligations as the acreage is developed. As of December 31, 2016, Hess' entire carry obligation had been satisfied.
In June 2018, the Company entered into an agreement to sell substantially all of its Ohio Utica joint venture ("JV") assets in the wet gas Utica Shale areas of Belmont, Guernsey, Harrison, and Noble counties, which includes approximately 26,000 net undeveloped acres for net cash proceeds of approximately $400,000. CNX received a deposit from the seller of approximately $40,000 in the second quarter, which was included in Assets Held for Sale on the Consolidated Balance Sheet and Proceeds from Asset Sales within the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flow. As part of the required evaluation under the held for sale accounting guidance, the Company determined that the approximate fair value less costs to sell exceeded the carrying value of the net assets and thus no impairment charge was recorded. The Company anticipates completing the sale of these assets during the third quarter of 2018.
Property, Plant and Equipment Impairment
In February 2017, the Company approved a plan to sell subsidiaries Knox Energy LLC and Coalfield Pipeline Company (collectively, "Knox"). Knox met all of the criteria to be classified as held for sale in February 2017. The potential disposal of Knox did not represent a strategic shift that would have a major effect on the Company's operations and financial results and was, therefore, not classified as discontinued operations in accordance with ASU 2014-08, Presentation of Financial Statements (Topic 205) and Property, Plant and Equipment (Topic 360). As part of the required evaluation under the held for sale guidance, the asset's book value was evaluated and adjusted to the lower of its carrying amount or fair value less cost to sell. The Company determined that the approximate fair value less costs to sell Knox was less than the carrying value of the net assets which resulted in an impairment of $137,865 in February 2017, included in Impairment of Exploration and Production Properties within the Consolidated Statements of Income. The sale of Knox closed in the second quarter of 2017.

NOTE 10—REVOLVING CREDIT FACILITIES:
CNX Resources Corporation (CNX)
On March 8, 2018, CNX amended and restated its senior secured revolving credit facility, which expires on March 8, 2023.
The amended and restated credit facility increased lenders' commitments from $1,500,000 to $2,100,000 with an accordion feature that allows the Company to increase the commitments to $3,000,000. The initial borrowing base increased from $2,000,000 to $2,500,000, and the letters of credit aggregate sub-limit remained unchanged at $650,000. The credit facility matures on March 8, 2023, provided that if the aggregate principal amount of our existing 5.875% Senior Notes due 2022, 8.00% Senior Notes due 2023 and certain other publicly traded debt securities outstanding 91 days prior to the earliest maturity of such debt (such date, the "Springing Maturity Date") is greater than $500,000, then the credit facility will mature on the Springing Maturity Date.

The facility is secured by substantially all of the assets of CNX and certain of its subsidiaries. Fees and interest rate spreads are based on the percentage of facility utilization, measured quarterly. Availability under the facility is limited to a borrowing base, which is determined by the lenders' syndication agent and approved by the required number of lenders in good faith by calculating a value of CNX's proved natural gas reserves.
The facility contains a number of affirmative and negative covenants that include, among others, covenants that, except in certain circumstances, limit the Company and the subsidiary guarantors' ability to create, incur, assume or suffer to exist indebtedness, create or permit to exist liens on properties, dispose of assets, make investments, purchase or redeem CNX common stock, pay dividends, merge with another corporation and amend the senior unsecured notes. The Company must also mortgage 80% of the value of its proved reserves and 80%of the value of its proved developed producing reserves, in each case, which are included in the borrowing base, maintain applicable deposit, securities and commodities accounts with the lenders or affiliates thereof, and enter into control agreements with respect to such applicable accounts.

The facility also requires that CNX maintain a maximum net leverage ratio of no greater than 4.00 to 1.00, which is calculated as the ratio of debt less cash on hand to consolidated EBITDA, measured quarterly. CNX must also maintain a minimum current ratio of no less than 1.00 to 1.00, which is calculated as the ratio of current assets, plus revolver availability, to current liabilities, excluding borrowings under the revolver, measured quarterly. The calculation of all of the ratios exclude CNXM. CNX was in compliance with all financial covenants as of June 30, 2018.

At June 30, 2018, the $2,100,000 facility had $422,000 of borrowings outstanding and $251,342 of letters of credit outstanding, leaving $1,426,658 of unused capacity. At December 31, 2017, the $1,500,000 facility had no borrowings outstanding and $239,072 of letters of credit outstanding, leaving $1,260,928 of unused capacity.

CNX Midstream Partners LP (CNXM)
On March 8, 2018, CNXM entered into a new $600,000 senior secured revolving credit facility that matures on March 8, 2023. The new revolving credit facility replaced its prior $250,000 senior secured revolving credit facility.
The facility includes restrictions on the ability of CNXM, its subsidiary guarantors and certain of its non-guarantor, non-wholly-owned subsidiaries, except in certain circumstances, to: (i) create, incur, assume or suffer to exist indebtedness; (ii) create or permit to exist liens on their properties; (iii) prepay certain indebtedness unless there is no default or event of default under the facility; (iv) make or pay any dividends or distributions in excess of certain amounts; (v) merge with or into another person, liquidate or dissolve; or acquire all or substantially all of the assets of any going concern or going line of business or acquire all or a substantial portion of another person’s assets; (vi) make particular investments and loans; (vii) sell, transfer, convey, assign or dispose of its assets or properties other than in the ordinary course of business and other select instances; (viii) deal with any affiliate except in the ordinary course of business on terms no less favorable to CNXM than it would otherwise receive in an arm’s length transaction; (ix) amend in any material manner its certificate of incorporation, bylaws, or other organizational documents without giving prior notice to the lenders and, in some cases, obtaining the consent of the lenders.

In addition, CNXM is obligated to maintain at the end of each fiscal quarter (x) a maximum total leverage ratio of no greater than between 4.75 to 1.00 ranging to no greater than 5.50 to 1.00 in certain circumstances; (y) a maximum secured leverage ratio of no greater than 3.50 to 1.00 and (z) a minimum interest coverage ratio of no less than 2.50 to 1.00. CNXM was in compliance with all financial covenants as of June 30, 2018.

The facility also contains customary events of default, including, but not limited to, a cross-default to certain other debt, breaches of representations and warranties, change of control events and breaches of covenants. The obligations under the facility are secured by substantially all of the assets of CNXM and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. CNX is not a guarantor under the facility.

At June 30, 2018, the $600,000 facility had $11,000 of borrowings outstanding.

During the six months ended June 30, 2018, CNXM completed a private offering of $400,000 of 6.50% senior notes due in March 2026 less $6,000 of unamortized bond discount. CNX is not a guarantor of CNXM's 6.50% senior notes due in March 2026 or CNXM's senior secured revolving credit facility.

During the six months ended June 30, 2018, CNX purchased $391,375 of its outstanding 5.875% senior notes due in April 2022. As part of this transaction, a loss of $15,635 was included in Loss (Gain) on Debt Extinguishment on the Consolidated Statements of Income.

During the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, CNX purchased $300,000 of its outstanding 8.00% senior notes due in April 2023. As part of this transaction, a loss of $23,413 was included in Loss (Gain) on Debt Extinguishment on the Consolidated Statements of Income.

During the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, CNX purchased $19,069 and $119,025, respectively, of its outstanding 5.875% senior notes due in 2022. As part of this transaction, a loss of $36 and a gain of $786, respectively, were included in Loss (Gain) on Debt Extinguishment on the Consolidated Statements of Income.

NOTE 12—COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENT LIABILITIES:
CNX and its subsidiaries are subject to various lawsuits and claims with respect to such matters as personal injury, wrongful death, damage to property, exposure to hazardous substances, governmental regulations including environmental remediation, employment and contract disputes and other claims and actions arising out of the normal course of business. CNX accrues the estimated loss for these lawsuits and claims when the loss is probable and can be estimated. The Company's current estimated accruals related to these pending claims, individually and in the aggregate, are immaterial to the financial position, results of operations or cash flows of CNX. It is possible that the aggregate loss in the future with respect to these lawsuits and claims could ultimately be material to the financial position, results of operations or cash flows of CNX; however, such amounts cannot be reasonably estimated. The amount claimed against CNX is disclosed below when an amount is expressly stated in the lawsuit or claim, which is not often the case.

The following lawsuits and claims include those for which a loss is probable and an accrual has been recognized:

Hale Litigation: This class action lawsuit was filed on September 23, 2010 in the U.S. District Court in Abingdon, Virginia. The putative class consists of force-pooled unleased gas owners whose ownership of the coalbed methane (CBM) gas was declared to be in conflict with rights of others. The lawsuit seeks a judicial declaration of ownership of the CBM and damages based on allegations that CNX Gas failed either to pay royalties due to conflicting claimants or deemed lessors, or paid them less than required because of the alleged practice of improper below market sales and/or taking alleged improper post-production deductions. On September


21



30, 2013, the District Judge entered an Order certifying the class, and CNX Gas appealed the Order to the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. On August 19, 2014, the Fourth Circuit agreed with CNX Gas, reversed the Order certifying the class and remanded the case to the trial court for further proceedings consistent with the decision. On April 23, 2015, Plaintiffs filed a Renewed Motion for Class Certification, which CNX opposed. On March 29, 2017, the Court issued an Order certifying four issues for class treatment: (1) allegedly excessive deductions; (2) royalties based on purported improperly low prices; (3) deduction of severance taxes; and (4) Plaintiffs' request for an accounting. On April 13, 2017, CNX filed a Petition for Allowance of Appeal with the Fourth Circuit, and on May 22, 2017 the Petition was denied. CNX and plaintiffs’ counsel have reached an agreement in principal to settle the certified class claims. On March 20, 2018, the Court preliminarily approved the class settlement, and on August 23, 2018, the Court will conduct a hearing to consider final approval of the proposed Settlement Agreement and Class Counsels’ request for attorneys’ fees. No class member has opted out of, or objected to, the settlement and the time for doing so has passed. The Company has paid the settlement into an escrow account from which it will be disbursed upon final court approval (or returned to CNX).

At June 30, 2018, CNX has provided the following financial guarantees, unconditional purchase obligations and letters of credit to certain third parties as described by major category in the following table. These amounts represent the maximum potential of total future payments that the Company could be required to make under these instruments. These amounts have not been reduced for potential recoveries under recourse or collateralization provisions. Generally, recoveries under reclamation bonds would be limited to the extent of the work performed at the time of the default. No amounts related to these unconditional purchase obligations and letters of credit are recorded as liabilities in the financial statements. CNX management believes that these commitments will expire without being funded, and therefore will not have a material adverse effect on financial condition.

Excluded from the above table are commitments and guarantees, that relate to discontinued operations, entered into in conjunction with the spin-off of the Company's coal business (See Note 5 - Discontinued Operations). Although CONSOL Energy has agreed to indemnify us to the extent that we are called upon to pay any of these liabilities, there is no assurance that CONSOL Energy will satisfy its obligations to indemnify us in these situations.

NOTE 13—DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS:

CNX enters into financial derivative instruments to manage its exposure to commodity price volatility. These natural gas and NGL commodity hedges are accounted for on a mark-to-market basis with changes in fair value recorded in current period earnings.

CNX is exposed to credit risk in the event of non-performance by counterparties. The creditworthiness of counterparties is subject to continuing review. The Company has not experienced any issues of non-performance by derivative counterparties.

None of the Company's counterparty master agreements currently require CNX to post collateral for any of its positions. However, as stated in the counterparty master agreements, if CNX's obligations with one of its counterparties cease to be secured on the same basis as similar obligations with the other lenders under the credit facility, CNX would have to post collateral for instruments in a liability position in excess of defined thresholds. All of the Company's derivative instruments are subject to master netting arrangements with our counterparties. CNX recognizes all financial derivative instruments as either assets or liabilities at fair value on the Consolidated Balance Sheets on a gross basis.
 
Each of the Company's counterparty master agreements allows, in the event of default, the ability to elect early termination of outstanding contracts. If early termination is elected, CNX and the applicable counterparty would net settle all open hedge positions.

The total notional amounts of production of CNX's derivative instruments at June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017 were as follows:

The Company also enters into fixed price natural gas sales agreements that are satisfied by physical delivery. These physical commodity contracts qualify for the normal purchases and sales exception and are not subject to derivative instrument accounting.

NOTE 14—FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS:

CNX determines the fair value of assets and liabilities based on the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. The fair values are based on assumptions that market participants would use when pricing an asset or liability, including assumptions about risk and the risks inherent in valuation techniques and the inputs to valuations. The fair value hierarchy is based on whether the inputs to valuation techniques are observable or unobservable. Observable inputs reflect market data obtained from independent sources (including NYMEX forward curves, LIBOR-based discount rates and basis forward curves), while unobservable inputs reflect the Company's own assumptions of what market participants would use.
The fair value hierarchy includes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value as described below:
Level One - Quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets.
Level Two - The fair value of the assets and liabilities included in Level 2 are based on standard industry income approach models that use significant observable inputs, including NYMEX forward curves, LIBOR-based discount rates and basis forward curves.
Level Three - Unobservable inputs significant to the fair value measurement supported by little or no market activity.
In those cases when the inputs used to measure fair value meet the definition of more than one level of the fair value hierarchy, the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement in its totality determines the applicable level in the fair value hierarchy.

The following methods and assumptions were used to estimate the fair value for which the fair value option was not elected:

Cash and cash equivalents: The carrying amount reported in the Consolidated Balance Sheets for cash and cash equivalents approximates its fair value due to the short-term maturity of these instruments.

Long-term debt: The fair value of long-term debt is measured using unadjusted quoted market prices or estimated using discounted cash flow analyses. The discounted cash flow analyses are based on current market rates for instruments with similar cash flows.

The carrying amounts and fair values of financial instruments for which the fair value option was not elected are as follows:

Cash and cash equivalents represent highly- liquid instruments and constitute Level 1 fair value measurements. Certain of the Company’s debt is actively traded on a public market and, as a result, constitute Level 1 fair value measurements. The portion of the Company’s debt obligations that is not actively traded is valued through reference to the applicable underlying benchmark rate and, as a result, constitute Level 2 fair value measurements.

NOTE 15—VARIABLE INTEREST ENTITIES:

The Company determined CNXM, of which the company owns approximately 34%, to be a variable interest entity. Upon completion of the Midstream Acquisition (see Note 6 - Acquisitions and Dispositions) through the Company's ownership and control of CNXM's general partner (CNX Midstream GP LLC), the Company has the power to direct the activities that most significantly impact CNXM's economic performance. In addition, through its limited partner interest and incentive distribution rights, or IDRs, in CNXM, the Company has the obligation to absorb the losses of CNXM and the right to receive benefits in accordance with such interests. As the Company has a controlling financial interest and is the primary beneficiary of CNXM, the Company consolidates CNXM commencing January 3, 2018.

The risks associated with the operations of CNXM are discussed in its Annual Reports on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 filed with the SEC on February 7, 2018.

In March 2018, CNXM closed its previously announced acquisition of CNX's remaining 95% interest in the gathering system and related assets commonly referred to as the Shirley-Penns System, in exchange for cash consideration in the amount of $265,000. CNXM funded the cash consideration with proceeds from the issuance of 6.5% senior notes due 2026 (See Note 11 - Long-Term Debt).
Prior to the acquisition of Noble's interest on January 3, 2018, CNX accounted for its interests in CNX Gathering and CNXM as an equity-method investment.

The following is a summary of the Company's Investment in Affiliates balances included within the Consolidated Balance Sheets associated with CNX Gathering and CNXM, respectively:
