(A) Shipper's Truck(s) shall be weighed immediately
before and immediately after loading or unloading, as
the case may be. The difference in the two weights

operated and verified in accordance with the
regulations of the Louisiana Bureau of Weights and

shall be the product of the average Btu's per pound

13.2 Measurement of Quantity of LNG Received from, or Delivered
to, Shipper's Vessel(s)
(A) The volume of cubic meters of LNG received or
delivered at the Terminal shall be measured in metric
units by gauging of the liquid in the tanks of the
Shipper's Vessel. TLNG shall cause the first gauging
to be made after the Captain of the Shipper's Vessel
has given his notice of "ready to receive" or "ready
to discharge," and prior to starting the pumps. A
second gauging operation shall take place immediately
after completion of loading or unloading.
Representatives of Shipper and TLNG shall have the
right to be present at such gaugings.
(B) Shipper shall send or cause to be sent to TLNG a
certified copy of the gauging standards for each tank
of each Shipper's Vessel being used to deliver
hereunder, in metric units approved by the U.S.
Bureau of Standards in Washington, (D.C.), as well as
correction charts (list, trim, tanks' contraction,
etc.). Such standards and charts shall be used
throughout the term of the Service Agreement, except
in the case of a physical change in the tanks, in
which case new standards and charts shall be used.
LNG level measuring devices shall be approved by both
TLNG and Shipper. Each tank shall be equipped with
two level-measuring devices of different types.
