GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
(b) The volume of cubic meters of LNG received at the Receipt Point shall be measured in
metric units by gauging of the liquid in the tanks of Customer's vessel(s). Customer
shall cause the first gauging to be made after the Captain of Customer's vessel has
given his notice of readiness to unload and before starting the pumps. A second gauging
shall take place immediately after completion of unloading. Representatives of Customer
and Southern LNG shall have the right to be present at such gaugings, but the absence
of a representative shall not prohibit any gauging.
(c) Customer shall send or cause to be sent to Southern LNG a certified copy of the gauging
standards, in metric units approved by the United States Bureau of Standards in
Washington, D.C., as well as correction charts (list, trim, contraction, etc.), for
each tank of each of Customer's vessels. Such standards and charts shall be used
throughout the term of the Service Agreement, except in the case of physical change in
the tanks, in which case new standards and charts shall be sent to Southern LNG. LNG
measuring devices shall be approved by both Southern LNG and Customer. Each tank shall
be equipped with two level-measuring devices of different types.
(d) The density of the LNG shall be calculated using the revised Klosek and McKinley
(e) The temperature of the LNG contained in the tanks of any of Customer's vessels shall be
determined by using the arithmetic average of the temperature indicated by special
thermo-couples or resistance thermometers spaced at various locations from top to
bottom of each tank with an accuracy of plus or minus two-tenths of a degree
centigrade. Such temperatures shall be either logged or printed.
