Jeff Beyersdorfer - SVP & Treasurer
We will move on to our next presentation. Coming up next we have Jeff Beyersdorfer, Senior Vice President and Treasurer of Western Refining. Jeff, I will turn it over to you.
Alright thanks Craig. So I am going to walk around and interact with the crowd since we've got such a small crowd here. We just lost one. So sorry a [clicker] or will you? Thank you. Okay, three things I want to do today, just quickly describe the asset base and within embedded in those comments is going to be some comments around the Midland/Cushing differential because it is a new phenomena and I've got a couple of maps in here, I will describe that phenomena and talk about how it affects our operations. Secondly talk about some of the projects that we are doing this year, some of the initiatives we have going on and particularly the uses of cash and then finally I want to talk about the balance sheet because there have been some lingering issues with respect to the balance sheet over time and we work pretty hard on rectifying those and want to share with you some of those things we’ve done and some additional initiatives we have around the balance sheet.
