Welcome to the Teekay Offshore Partners second quarter 2012 earnings results conference call. During the call, all participants will be in a listen-only mode. Afterwards, you will be invited to participate in a question-and-answer session. (Operator Instructions) As a reminder, this call is being recorded. Now, for opening remarks and introductions, I would like to turn the call over to Mr. Peter Evensen, Teekay Offshore Partners’ Chief Executive Officer. Please go ahead, sir.
Before Mr. Evensen begins I would like to direct all participants to our website at www.teekayoffshore.com where you will find a copy of the second quarter of 2012 earnings presentation.
Mr. Evensen will review this presentation during today's conference call. Please allow me to remind you our discussion today contains forward-looking statements. Actual results may differ materially from results projected by those forward-looking statements. Additional information concerning factors that could cause actual results to materially differ from those in the forward-looking statements is contained in the second quarter of 2012 earnings release and earnings presentation available on our website. I will now turn the call over to Mr. Evensen to begin.
