(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.
