As outlined in our earnings release yesterday the same quarter of 2018 was a very best overall quarter in Matador`s history, both operationally and financially. I want to take a moment and personally acknowledge the Matador staff for all their achievements and to recognize them, I think, for their extraordinary teamwork this past year where the teamwork among the different departments and within the departments have continued to improve and this quarter was a real example of how everybody pushed on the raw, land and legal combined to make an $80 million acquisition yesterday, production and the midstream have combined and worked together as a team. So, were not flaring any gas and just over and over the teamwork with our Maxcom program with our drilling program has been extraordinary. And so from the executive staff is that I block a shout out to the guys in the field who have really been connecting wells, working in tough weather conditions and making it all happened.
So, some very pleasing to us
