Before I turn the call over to Barry Davis, I want to mention an upcoming Crosstex event that I’m sure you’ll be interested in attending. On November the 28th, we are hosting a West Texas Permian facilities tour for analysts and investors in Midland, Texas. We will be visiting our installations in the Permian Basin, our Deadwood processing plant and our Miski rail terminal.
Our management team will be available for discussion and questions during the event. Apache is scheduled to give an operations presentation as well. We distributed invitations about the tour last week and we urge you to respond quickly as space is limited. If you did not receive an invitation or want more information, please let me now.

Mike will then go into more detail about our quarterly results and guidance. And I will wrap up with an update on the status of our growth projects, including our recent acquisition of Clearfield Energy and review our operational results.
