Our record sales were driven by a 10% year-over-year increase in liquids volumes, which averaged more than 290,000 barrels per day. During the fourth quarter, approximately 70% of our crude oil volumes received waterborne pricing, resulting in an overall oil price realization of $11 per barrel above WTI. We also benefited from NGL volumes, receiving 59% of WTI pricing through our ability to access Mont Belvieu in the premium Gulf Coast markets.These results demonstrate that our liquids-focused capital allocations are working. At year-end 2011, liquids comprised 43% of our total sales volumes, delivering an incremental 70,000 barrels per day or a 31% increase since 2008, when we began targeting liquids-rich areas of our portfolio. We plan to continue this capital allocation approach that will drive us toward higher liquids production in the years ahead.
