Looking forward, several organic growth initiatives combined with some additional contracting have us well positioned for 2011. Specifically, we expect that planned growth in our Natural Gas Services and our Sulfur Services segments will increase distributable cash flow this year. Also, we recently added incremental fee-based contracts for our prilling capacity within our Sulfur Services segment and renegotiated a contract with a significant sulfur buyer to reduce our exposure to price fluctuation as we continue to achieve our long-stated goal of becoming a more fee-based Partnership. Finally, as previously disclosed, low cost multiple growth projects are underway at our Cross lubricant processing facility that will be completed during calendar 2012."
Due to FASB ASC 850, the Partnership is required to account for the Cross Oil asset contribution as a transfer of net assets between entities under common control. As such, the revenues, earnings and distributable cash flow data for periods prior to the November 2009 contribution date as set forth above and elsewhere herein require adjustment to be viewed on a comparable year over year basis. Before giving effect to the Cross transaction, revenue for the year ended December 31, 2009 would have been $633.8 million, compared to revenues of $1.2 billion for the year ended December 31, 2008. Additionally, net income for the year ended December 31, 2009 would have been $20.5 million compared to net income of $42.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2008. Finally, distributable cash flow for the year ended December 31, 2009 would have been $49.4 million. For a more detailed reconciliation of the Cross asset acquisition, please refer to Item 6. Selected Financial Data in our Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on March 2, 2011.
