Good morning. My name is Devon, and I will be your conference operator today. At this time, I would like to welcome everyone to the Noble Corporation Third Quarter 2018 Earnings Conference Call. All lines have been placed on mute to prevent any background noise. After the speakers' remarks, there will be a question-and-answer session. (Operator Instructions) I would now like to turn the call over to Jeff Chastain, VP of IR. Mr. Chastain, you may begin your conference.
Okay, thank you, Devon, and welcome everyone to Noble Corporation's third quarter of 2018 earnings conference call. We appreciate your interest in the company. A copy of Noble's earnings report was issued last evening along with all supporting statements and schedules. And you can find that on Noble's website. And again, that's noblecorp.com. (Forward-Looking Cautionary Statements) Also note, we are referencing non-GAAP financial measures in today's call. You'll find the required supplemental disclosure for these measures, including the most directly comparable GAAP measure, and an associated reconciliation on the Noble website. And finally, consistent with our quarterly disclosure practices, once our call has concluded, we will post our -- to our website a summary of the financial guidance covered on today's call. And that will review fourth quarter and full year of 2018 figures. So with that, I'll now turn the call over to Julie Robertson, Chairman, President and CEO of Noble.
