We achieved a reserve-replacement ratio of 162 percent, before the effects of price revisions, at competitive costs, and we remain on track to meet our goal of 3 billion BOE of proved reserves by the end of 2014.

We delivered a 67-percent success rate in 2012 from our deepwater exploration and appraisal drilling program, where we've had a very strong three-year average success rate of almost 70 percent. The combination of industry-leading deepwater exploration success and strong, capital-efficient operating results gives Anadarko a track record our employees are very proud of and look forward to building upon in 2013."
