Shneur Gershuni

too? I with in very made forth. of the board Sean talked much ton guys And of we lower, about capacity then of so to you that if shared progress. for already okay. a costs down even just this that you is can adding expect a come on side year actually with terms and think DCP recognize are in targets, sharing that I And successful mean Are can well talk in there you've wondering you you share more XXXX, that And about target to targets of X.X – that Are us through I you you have part then, efficiencies. opportunities talked there cost there as of terms And efficiencies that? how as VSPs do been synthetically further? some

Sean O'Brien

and some on has of just able efforts been with hey, things X.X really the done - with Shneur, everyone things the the start remind ICC It the good the cost it’s on pipelines. I'll some we've of margin have to can the equation. side around do Sean. side So, shifted I that significantly.

to I they on based. But are also I around way. They right in of has the but you. significant efficiencies. a picking – talked way of are cost it this can efficiency voluntary think to VSP, that program. separation broad, accelerate targets. definitely sort that XXXX up about we're numbers team. the you're That And Wouter share doing. with They're few drive be more set think I it some things was about to targets a

we if the right think where on We into about I the is lower are where now, company are already about XX% year we came – versus headcount.

improvement. substantial would is, that pretty in board tell the I have that's That with you, So goals set the and for the line Wouter company.

XXXX. that In XX% number of our terms longer-term, of around the by to to end be would get reduction goal

the are drivers, we to here focused mix. but that specific of Considerably, think, those giving corporate digitization, and some I'm the a mostly in just while the things, targets We're things, all automating I changing the when those our substantial. operating the through So you were they're things progressing you are remotely operations, goals some processes, assets. adding pretty functions well. are on of but ago, doing

you're You think trends. some I seeing good saw – cost

time will grow benefits we we're remainder and As I the year mentioned that as next the that not excited go year. to through And through year. one continue the into of this reoccur charge

terms go asset as By are we on efficient costs. talked our million, help did assets, obviously the was that'll I'm but these down. a non-core around capital I maintenance million are And the look divestiture if know way, That less assets. These noticed, continue propane capital, but to going I always something divest of $XX capital side we portfolio, to on us get I'm the maintenance the well. reduce our usually maintenance sure as questions mentioned you continues things about QX business. these of in it's that small In We of year-to-date we sales. consolidations, at. to $XXX help

Our from Mizuho. Gabe from next Moreen question is

line now is open. Your

Gabe Moreen

here a Hey, on that on. set GCX outlook come in have question terms I morning. to good now just Guadalupe, is of

be you your So it there expectations leave contracts any around GCX may blow the fills and and there. essentially And as your far volumes that term long-term again guess as or the pipe that happen? over basis that open putting when as I in plan may out medium marketing may up, to as

Sean O'Brien

things, Sean. Guad A record in couple a Hey, had the spreads. QX basis obviously tied Gabe, wide to quarter

– it's Our it's it recently, into the same it Guad still it been A typically we of on hedge portion open. – we’ve obviously a but a portion been future. more strategy the is exaggerated little out of

alluded I the cash think flows I of marketing those right? term those you You know really I more lack deals in duration to that. they've sort some, annuities, been liked those our in some lines. working physical are longer you've on agreements. along worked a for of team's those; think and lock We and on couple

just see half of – GCX a kind diminishing earnings the of our being QX that terms do outlook first coming on the Guad comments position as online. we half the maybe in open QX. That's In with stronger for even Guadalupe you year, second made little We the see in than second half. of and little driven the by

think you On to got the about side, positive it holistically.

And coming a online, what settle on is are in then we've in see so Permian the that increase. very to gas pipeline. got – earnings driving You've start to that the going way that’s prices started start we to we small GCX the

So if is the favorable those half you the think net-net about three company. the of the second to of all of year, things

Guad probably second point a is on half I earnings, true. is the and think diminishes that year your little However, of

Wouter van Kempen

deals number locked the pretty the spreads attractive add quarter. prices. have as we've saw on longer in here to number executed team prices that high multi-year in attractive as been in are the some They of at maybe – second But blowouts the term that as attractive absolutely years. basis of of has very Gabe what we to not there marketing Sean’s may And and for massive a

that’s an of out coming going I that's think other GCX I more annuity it time needed pipelines that same So the out very is Permian. kind of there thing. good point to the there's At of of creating than Sean’s and agrees are – everybody think

start basis able surprised So I opening somewhere that. we take be be XXXX see to and wouldn't then of advantage we that up to will again in

Gabe Moreen

pricing – Got about the sort do it. of let you now XXXX? right but hedging talked what to kind you volumes, bit, versus in things a that for And then given in Wouter. little speaking to they'll follow-up Thanks, to hedging of approach if little NGLs spot a improve now, see extent forward locking want to of curve improving your bit right

Sean O'Brien


of the So in sorry QX the I side half I'm we're the think of year. first actually in hedge little half more the positive the on were second a in we year or than

As been any opportunities. than on have environment a for stronger probably things. look NGL see get for that. telling we that's program. do June. it. the actually We'll We have to conducive the not you're forwards July XXXX on do hedging us hedges We the saw We multiyear and We alluding to little put hasn't just a focus game what bit

positive So at then we’re starting bit us and a to see movement the least the of to little gets stronger. telling forwards QX

We're get year, will on hedges coming always will and analysts of prices hedging very back. is this of a next To the individuals we look if for XXXX And with then the opportunities. that infrastructure believe strengthen. come there those online and some of XXXX try lot and later when and some year, proactive that point

I from we where assets. up that’s ago. up years thing base though, you as five this focus just four, other XX% – The to you do well company year on the That's fee our massively was core the want as three, know on got

XXXX that guidance will not And yet, we're grow. but giving

of the think, projects that are this business to If you online fee portion continue that year was know, this the think grow. grew about substantially. the are last I commodity was about coming said, in down, company QX his hey, later next will Wouter NGL year about down and think versus and year, XX% we where highlighted all remarks based pretty you And

through hopeful So I'm I to we year. as to hedging think strategy pertains for remainder opportunities this continue will of on. in proactively put will a hedges those to NGL look place come have the good it we
