Welcome to the BP presentation to the financial community web cast and conference call. I now hand over to Fergus MacLeod, Head of Investor Relations. Fergus MacLeod Hello and welcome to BP's second quarter 2010 results conference call. I'm Fergus MacLeod, and today’s presentation will be by Tony Hayward, our Group Chief Executive, and Byron Grote, our Chief Financial Officer. We are also joined today by our Chairman, Carl-Henric Svanberg, for the first few minutes, and he will make some introductory remarks. Before we start, I'd like to draw your attention to our usual cautionary statement. During today’s presentation, we will make reference to estimates, plans and expectations that are forward-looking statements. Actual outcomes could differ materially due to factors we note on this slide and in our regulatory filings.
