About Us

As the coal industry’s first publicly traded master limited partnership (NASDAQ ticker symbol ‘ARLP’), Alliance is the 2nd largest coal producer in the eastern United States.

We are a diversified natural resource company that generates income from coal production and oil & gas mineral interests located in strategic producing regions across the United States. The primary focus of our business is to maximize the value of our existing mineral assets, both in the production of coal from our mining assets and the leasing and development of our oil & gas mineral ownership. We believe that ARLP's diverse and rich resource base will allow ARLP to continue to create long-term value for unitholders..

We are currently the second-largest coal producer in the eastern United States with seven underground mining complexes in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia as well as a coal-loading terminal in Indiana on the Ohio River. We manage and report our coal operations primarily under two regions, Illinois Basin and Appalachia. We market our coal production to major domestic and international utilities and industrial users.

We currently own both mineral and royalty interests in approximately 1.5 million gross acres in premier oil & gas producing regions in the United States, primarily the Permian, Anadarko, and Williston Basins. While we own both mineral and royalty interests, we refer to them collectively as mineral interests throughout our discussions of our business as the majority of our holdings are mineral interests. We market our mineral interests for lease to operators in those regions and generate royalty income from the leasing and development of those mineral interests. Reserve additions and the associated cash flows are expected to increase from the development of our existing mineral interests and through acquisitions of additional mineral interests.

In addition, we provide terminal services for the transloading of coal, and develop and market industrial and mining technology products and services.

ARLP, a Delaware limited partnership, completed its initial public offering on August 19, 1999 and is listed on the NASDAQ Global Select Market under the ticker symbol "ARLP." We are managed by our sole general partner, MGP, a Delaware limited liability company, which holds a non-economic general partner interest in ARLP.
