I'll comment more on industry and pricing outlook a little later in the call. But first, I'd like to provide you an update on our operations. Our plant in New Zealand, the Motunui plant, continued to operate well and produced 208,000 tons of methanol. I'll comment more on the outlook for these operations and natural gas in that country in just a few moments.In Trinidad, we produced 455,000 tons of methanol, which is a little below capacity for those plants as some cyclical issues led to a short period of unplanned downtime at our Trinidad site during the first quarter. These issues were resolved in late March. And the site has been operating well since that time. However, we are planning a short outage at (inaudible) plant next week to conduct another minor repair.
