5.1 General


(a) Buyer shall make or cause to be made all necessary arrangements with third

parties to effectuate (i) delivery to Operator of LNG at the Cove Point

terminal, and (ii) receipt by downstream transporters of Natural Gas, all such

arrangements consistent with the operation of this Rate Schedule and the GT&C of

this Tariff.


(b) All discharging, storage and vaporization of LNG at the Cove Point terminal

shall be carried out in strict conformity with all operating and safety rules

and procedures of Operator, as may be amended from time to time, and with all

federal, State and local laws, rules and regulations pertaining, but not limited

to, operational, environmental, health and safety which may be applicable to the

services provided herein.


5.2 LNG Tankers


(a) Unless otherwise agreed to by Operator, Operator shall only provide LNG

discharging service for Buyer's LNG tanker(s) having specifications and

characteristics as set forth in Section 5.3(a) of this Rate Schedule LTD-1.

Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, Operator shall be obligated to receive LNG

from an LNG tanker not meeting the specifications set forth in Section 5.3(a) if

in Operator's sole judgment, reasonably exercised, the tanker is otherwise

compatible with the Cove Point terminal facilities. Except for changes required

for legal, safety or regulatory reasons, Operator will not file for any change of

the specifications in this Section 5.3 without agreement of the majority of LTD-1

Buyers (based upon capacity entitlement). Operator will provide Buyer at least

three (3) months notice of changes to the specifications unless shorter notice is

required for legal safety or regulatory reasons. Nothing in this section is

intended to prevent any LTD-1 Buyer who has not agreed to such proposal from

opposing such change before the Commission.
