(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

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.

(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.
