Patriot Coal Corp. has relocated its headquarters from St. Louis to West Virginia.
The company says in a news release that its operations office in Scott Depot became the company's headquarters effective Jan. 1.
Patriot Coal says the move will reduce administrative costs and put the headquarters closer to its mining operations and customers.
The transition began in November and is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2015.
Patriot Coal has eight mining complexes in West Virginia and two in western Kentucky.
