Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for standing by, and welcome to the PAA and PNG Second-Quarter Results Conference Call. (Operator instructions) At this time, I will turn the conference call over to your host, Director of Investor Relations, Mr. Roy Lamoreaux. Please go ahead, sir.
Good morning and welcome you to the Plains All American Pipelines and PAA Natural Gas Storage’s Second-Quarter 2012 Results Conference Call. The Slide presentation for today’s call is available in the Conference Call tab of the Investor Relations section of our website at paalp.com and pnglp.com.
I would mention that throughout the call we will refer to the companies by their New York Stock Exchange ticker symbols of PAA and PNG respectively. As a reminder, Plains All American owns a 2% general partner interest in all the [intended] distribution rights and approximately 62% as a limited partner in PNG, which accordingly is consolidated into PAA’s results.
In addition to reviewing recent results, we’ll provide forward-looking comments on the partnership’s outlook for the future. In order to avail ourselves with the Safe Harbor precepts that encourage companies to provide this type of information, we direct you to the risks and warnings set forth in the partnership’s most recent and future filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
