We'll be adding more frac capacity than we have planned during 2011 of 70,000 in the Spraberry for a total of 300,000 horsepower and that's primarily due to the ramp-up of the horizontal Wolfcamp play. With the recent runoff several weeks ago of WTI, we've added some more oil derivative positions from the years 2012 to 2014.
