GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

 

 

8. NATURAL GAS QUALITY (Continued)

 

(i) (ix) Gauging equipment:

 

(1) Buyer shall cause to be supplied, operated, and maintained equipment for

accurately gauging the level of liquid and liquid temperature in the

tanks of Buyer's LNG tanker(s).

 

(2) All measurements and calculations relating to gauging and determination

of the density of the LNG and the testing of the quality and composition

of the LNG shall be performed by Buyer. Representatives of Operator

shall have the right to be present, but the absence of a representative

shall not prohibit any measurement, calculations, or testing.

 

(3) Both parties shall have the right to inspect at all times and be present

at the calibration of the measuring and testing equipment upon reasonable

notice. All testing data, charts, calculations or any other similar

information shall be made available to the parties and preserved for a

period of not less than three years.

 

 

(x) Verification of accuracy:

 

(1) The accuracy of the instruments used shall be verified at the request of

Operator. Such verifications shall be made in the presence of the Party

requesting verification, in accordance with methods recommended by the

manufacturers of the measuring instruments.

 

(2) If, at any time of verification, a measuring instrument is found to

produce errors of one percent of less of unloaded LNG, then such

instrument's previous measurements shall be considered accurate for

purposes of delivery calculations. Such instrument shall be adjusted as

necessary. If, at any time of verification, a measuring instrument is

found to produce errors of more than one percent, then such instrument's

previous measurements shall be brought to a zero difference by comparison

with calibration results, and for any period known definitely or agreed

to have been affected by the error, the calculation of unloading during

this period shall be corrected accordingly. If the period that the error

affected is not definitely known or agreed upon, correction shall be made

for those quantities unloaded during the last half of the period since

the date of the last calibration of the instrument.

 

(xi) The installation and operation of devices for measuring the level of LNG and

temperature in the tanks of Buyer's LNG tanker(s), as well as chromatographs,

shall be carried out to the manufacturer's specifications.
