Presentation

Operator

Good day, and welcome to Kosmos Energy's First Quarter 2012 Conference Call. Just a reminder, today's call is being recorded. At this time let me turn the call over to Brad Whitmarsh, Vice President of Investor Relations for Kosmos Energy. Thank you, Mr. Whitmarsh. You may begin.

Brad Whitmarsh

Thanks, operator, and thanks to all of you for joining us today. This morning, we issued our first quarter earnings release and later today we will be filing our 10-Q with the SEC. Both items will be available on our website.

Joining me on the call today are Brian Maxted, CEO, Greg Dunlevy, Executive VP and CFO, Darrell McKenna Chief Operating Officer and Paul Dailly, Senior VP of Exploration.

After our prepared remarks, we will have sufficient time for a question-and-answer session. I would ask that you keep your questions to one primary and one follow-up question, so that we can get to all who are on the call today.

Before we get started, I'd like to mention that this conference call includes certain forward-looking statements based on our current and most reasonable expectations. The risks associated with forward-looking statements have been outlined in the earnings release and in our SEC filings.
