Once again, I thank you and your team for a tremendous job getting this completed 1 week ahead of schedule and without incident. All that said, this was in the face of 2 leakers which basically cost us 4 days of real production. So, in reality, you finished 11 days ahead of schedule. The city was ecsatic when the road closure came down before the parade. Thank you again for the ooprtunity to work with INTREN.
