Travis Campbell

Thank you, and as always thanks for your interest in the company. Today, we are here to discuss the exciting acquisition we announced at the close of business yesterday. As you for sure noticed, we also accelerated the WMB dividend and gave updated guidance for 2011, for 2012, and 2013, as well as provided 2014 guidance for the first time. Alan Armstrong, Don Chappel, and Rory Miller, are here with me this morning. And in a minute, Don and Alan will quickly go through these exciting developments and then we’ll take your questions.

Before I turn it over to Alan, let me remind you that a few of the slides today in today’s presentation that the few slides in today’s presentation are available on the web at williams.com or on williamslp.com. Also you can find there more detailed schedules with the 2012 through 2014 guidance. Also you can find where any non-GAAP numbers have been reconciled back to GAAP numbers. On slide two and three of today’s presentation is our disclaimer on any forward-looking statements. You should review those pages.
