So, we'll go ahead and get started if everybody's ready and is -- can find a seat. I'd like to say good afternoon, and welcome to those of you in the room, as well as those listening on the web to ConocoPhillips Investor Update. We plan to take the next hour to go over our plans for enhancing returns and growing earnings, as well as shareholder distributions. I'm here today with Jim Mulva, ConocoPhillips Chairman and CEO. And the material that you'll see presented today can be found on ConocoPhillips' website, along with a transcript of the presentation and the question-and-answer session. The Safe Harbor language that you see on this slide is a reminder that we will be making forward-looking comments, as part of the presentation and a part of the Q&A, and actual results may differ materially from the expectations we shared today. Sources of these differences can be found on the slide, as well on our -- as well as our filings with the SEC.
