Good morning. Welcome to Noble Energy's Second Quarter 2012 Earnings Call. I would now like to turn the call over to David Larson, Vice President of Investor Relations. Please go ahead, sir.

Thanks. Good morning, everyone. Welcome to Noble Energy's Second Quarter 2012 Earnings Call and Webcast. On the call today, we have Chuck Davidson, Chairman and CEO; Dave Stover, President and COO; and Ken Fisher, CFO.

Earlier this morning, we issued our earnings release for the second quarter, and it is available on our website. We have also posted a few supplemental operational slides that we hope you will find useful as you review our results today. You may have also noticed in the morning's press release that we have reclassified our North Sea operations as discontinued operations. To assist you with the accounting impact, we provided an additional table to our earnings release.
