"Our Partnership saw positive results across multiple segments during the first quarter. This included strong performance in the wholesale butane division of our Natural Gas Services segment. The market remained strong as the gasoline blending season carried over from the fourth quarter. In our Sulfur Services segment, we benefited from another strong quarter from our fertilizer division. In the Terminalling and Storage segment, our second consecutive quarter with an integrated lubricant packaging platform showed great results and is ahead of planned cash flow year to date. We continue to be excited about the potential growth of our lubricant packaging business and are committed to its success. Lastly, we believe our Marine Transportation segment is also currently well-positioned. While inland demand remains strong, utilization is currently also strong in our offshore division, which has historically had more volatile cash flow."Also, the first quarter 2013 was the first full operational quarter under contract for our Corpus Christi crude oil terminal facility. Throughput to date at the terminal has exceeded plan on the first six tanks and generated strong cash flow. Currently, we are making progress securing a contract for the final 300,000 barrels of storage for which construction will commence soon. The additional storage is anticipated to be operational in early 2014.
