Besides Matt and myself, there are several other members of the management team who will be available to assist in the Q&A session. For today’s agenda, I will start off with a high-level review of performance, key accomplishments and business highlights for the quarter. We will then turn it over to Matt to review the Partnership’s consolidated financial results, segment results and other financial matters for the Partnership. Matt will also review key financial matters related to Targa Resources Corp. Following Matt’s comments, I will provide additional updates on some of our ongoing activities, and we will then take your questions at the end. You may recall that Targa had a press release on October 19, which provided an update on selected projects and provided some explanation of our financial outlook given modern moving pieces in our businesses. Today’s earnings release, the third quarter 10-Qs and our current outlook for the business are consistent with the press release.
