Wouter van Kempen

Sean, start then I'll Shneur, in and jump can you it well. as

this [spot to I think, is that company for mean, I balance up perfect term. the a that general, sheet. you're getting to very in long means the we the strong believe well set And on]. time

massive is somewhere free kind that's cost, reliability, management our good with to commodity So that an range like our have around talking in to we things XXXX. flow profile what you you very if And should are that, committed amount you a of of for to, think get of stay flexibility. we be excess I in And if how the as manage capital, we provides kind cash prices like by where X.X things leverage was the Sean they of this be. are X.X to And that And there's key the raise of a our there do amount be where kind going want a It's back tremendous from, we of after units, hey, buy is distribution, are number around to to for to talking anywhere right, are absolutely the that as preferreds is get us. of going really unitholders, we flexibility a can you're something the trading more that back well. that to premium to there way about, way ourselves at continued some end is flexibility. you're year. today

some little balance know, two are get get of but the perfect you there, in here credit right, the this we have is As moment. them we equity a key balance think significant bit things I run also short below But continuing which to sheet those the to takeaway together.

and very, metrics. to investment got pretty And XXXX beyond exciting. if flexibility today, sheet commodity get after very company stays grade strong will this balance in and you've type massive that's We that where of and massive, we with a like are

Shneur Gershuni

now your just panic now in just on hedges around you're enough, I that Uri, of kind kind on Looks And the right last hedging your you've kind you maybe the the you hedge kind given the some I where sort hedges like XX% this in added of that's think have And pivot, is that quarter point with need the on in you've to XX was putting been quarter. about is you're as Is be place. at and that versus looking of and just XX% of of so gas hedges, also side, on layering way now? basis especially issue from forth? been right adjusted at last

Sean O'Brien

on that. So two things

up it things I mean, said you us ability, really better. when have those higher a than pretty given hedges, this are couple -- at 'XX. Shneur, price think run them I the First I significantly about prices so XX question, couldn't has think

said you're is if up everything -- thinking going mark hedge for outlooks going there to plus 'XX. to hedge, flow good you're far pricing we've a pretty next the a to around little the year. I do more there's pick think in just thus So bullish cash

cash go where locking think at about as hedged and and we in I So consistency I I advantages do in we not good we're be will really XXXX. good we at in and were 'XX. as mean, do feel taking think about we're in rates. But flows,

we probably probably moment. are we the need where like So will feel to we that at be

terms equity know. hedges So They prices Obviously, a Uri, spot they're yes prices And Uri by volatility volatility five question. the have about daily to any did will pose not was period you gas not day or problem. longer in that like around in be the all of duration. impacted and the like

well, we -- longer term the in a were so wasn't trend the the So in the those that added another obviously more winter. days. was answer have that performed hedges to -- product issue will selling some like way -- you by always if that we’ll to type we that that company question, in the position safeguard around be product we you And And had the better there. have have taken different approaches that we will see have


with Blum Michael from Wells comes question next Fargo. Our

Michael Blum

on Just there me. wonder Hills next? your what's outlook for of level? volumes seeing the One, you're from And guess, I the what also, trend can us two give Midcontinent your the and you of if activity just sort I into quick specifically, rest view related, producer how year ones of Southern for here

Sean O'Brien

impact. improvements we're seeing of but was by But lot bunch seeing -- year QX the Southern than far, where into obviously you of and showed Uri. a were Midcontinent the the massive talking we than Midcon we of line, is seeing better going growth hold positive affected that. Hills we're a not probably are I seeing that would are coming and so which kind There and what a into Michael, is are little have been, you -- if

the a come Southern little majority different that we Sand of do from in gas volumes sense control. or Hills Hills that is barrels than the the

so So, improved in outlook Southern good pretty far Hills’ QX.

just I going seeing And have that quite as improve outlook Midcontinent pretty is good stuff we by through DJ better think to QX Southern a roof. you're And is that the and we expect driven The Hills it in of in well. partially doing thought. is the terms than even some slightly would well. DJ QX more and feeding

like So And definitely Hills. good volumes the outlook Southern and the areas catching Midcontinent up. in on DJ

slightly I in thought. think, last then the than you We're definitely we and anticipated. Midcontinent a I seeing year call, said had things where would little Uri. on have what things started had catch we probably up the to slow better

Michael Blum

it both off Second their to pick in question, I your a active, from about assets lately where pretty probably you some fit A&D perspective to to where the there assets I was you a might that it's wanted add? general want to Is you sense. market? on is you own divestitures, also portfolio active that today, anything Clearly, more looking like the midstream looks do want that? And companies see perspective, ask and do be, that's makes think like space, see anything you

Wouter van Kempen

right. You’re

You we're you are of assets in trying absolutely pretty house divestiture that little coming the hey to for type acquisition where table any very more on point-of-view. I'm consolidation? kind I things happy at the we to trade what that yet of think There From market are see looking we're point the not saying view, scale seeing where shape. transactions us. instance, definitely actively am are the seeing asset done seeing, producer a of same on where today. you're you’re people portfolio saying sitting also a an are side not for don't at that time, that from the more I of way bit no having here activity, the activity some broad

think I've times is a questions do is There some needs that your over I utilized as XX be colleagues’ And fully questions running not that to six, industry continues either. the any areas. your soon. don't I we're I months, very significant see overcapacity to various consolidate. important. being that So anytime whole multiple And in and projects and the continue last something midstream believe, to very, overcapacity pretty there answered

on that? is think us M&A earned going something more tremendously on harvesting into the which before, this the to big is I be you broader then I if that do DCP, industry, So get much that more from mature went you a see believe state clearly a said do obviously we right are, as I scale cycle [opine] cycles to I do has Are growth important. of that. consolidator. a into cannot you mature

base, think, reductions, M&A is performance, what cost, Scope you have around our execution goes. to our optimizing that greenhouse do our our gas about I of about we I asset I Scope not things take we'll X sustainability M&A like upping think and done if them. we But reliability and a that. spoke lowering the potentially, I it's X, how but it assets strategy where think an also see optimize believe know is our strategy,

the XX ours seen fairly answer we that this you cycles industry the and years highly. was Unfortunately, last many often. including because over no, have think If industry about fairly the companies, leveraged plus for was

things foremost, that is got to flexibility. important enormous and that us, absolutely, the for because you So after getting first most

kind If about, I different you hey, that made to think have, what puzzle of a over we've business you tremendous the like model would improvement pieces decade. to of the talk last the are

about like do as business, absolute, a and more XX% we of yes. at. is to kind that have and The commodity vertically is be that? believe, of to I business years, company. having it, wellhead we were looking think now gathering the integrated we much more a next important, you to of If plus team, for you're processing massively management water where exposed, term answer call we're going the believe But as that plus type XX longer would

So is the could more good yes. probably improvement be done, answer we there. make But that

around So to at continue and those are are that. we opportunities things there that look say,

models sheet of It's is other that time a it's piece the where like definitely great that then you make be something I think But we really other that believe you looking strong. there return have investment some business can And at the pursuing. some spending on. Short really, we're we're balance CCS and so will get a question. lot yes, a around opportunities answer,

have We line to sight that. of
