Full year 2012 production of 6,303 Boe/d was in line with our public guidance. Fourth quarter 2012 production of 5,935 Boe/d was generally consistent with our internal forecast, albeit slightly lower. An unexpected compressor failure at our Pecos Slope field in late November 2012 negatively impacted fourth quarter production by approximately 35 Boe/d. The compressor was back in service in mid February 2013.
