      behalf of each of Industrial, Ventspils, Semichlaus, Oxford and Energetic

      Industrial's, Ventspils', Semichlaus', Oxford's and Energetic's
      obligations (as the case may be) under the Finance Documents.

14   SECURITY COVER

14.1 MINIMUM REQUIRED SECURITY COVER. Clause 14.2 applies if the Lender notifies
     the Borrowers that the Asset Cover Ratio is below:

(a)  at any time on or prior to 30 June 2009, 1.25 to 1; and

(b)  at all times thereafter, 1.3 to 1.


                                       38



14.2 PROVISION OF ADDITIONAL SECURITY; PREPAYMENT. If the Lender serves a notice
     on the Borrowers under Clause 14.1, the Borrowers shall, within 1 month
     after the date on which the Lender's notice is served, either:

(a)  provide, or ensure that a third party provides, additional security which,
     in the reasonable opinion of the Lender, has a net realisable value at
     least equal to the shortfall in the Asset Cover Ratio and is documented in
     such terms as the Lender may approve or require; or

(b)  prepay such part (at least) of the Loan as will eliminate the shortfall in
     the Asset Cover Ratio.

14.3 VALUATION OF SHIPS. The market value of a Ship at any date is that shown by
     the arithmetic average of two valuations, each prepared:

(a)  as at a date not more than 14 days previously;

(b)  by an independent sale and purchase shipbroker which the Lender has
     approved or appointed for the purpose;

(c)  with or without physical inspection of the Ship (as the Lender may
     require);

(d)  on the basis of a sale for prompt delivery for cash on normal arm's length
     commercial terms as between a willing seller and a willing buyer, free of
     any existing charter or other contract of employment; and

(e)  after deducting the estimated amount of the usual and reasonable expenses
     which would be incurred in connection with the sale.

14.4 VALUE OF ADDITIONAL VESSEL SECURITY. The net realisable value of any
     additional security which is provided under Clause 14.2 and which consists
     of a Security Interest over a vessel shall be that shown by a valuation
     complying with the requirements of Clause 14.3.

14.5 VALUATIONS BINDING. Any valuation under Clause 14.2, 14.3 or 14.4 shall be
     binding and conclusive as regards the Borrowers, as shall be any valuation
     which the Lender makes of any additional security which does not consist of
     or include a Security Interest.

14.6 PROVISION OF INFORMATION. The Borrowers shall promptly provide the Lender
     and any shipbroker or expert acting under Clause 14.3 or 14.4 with any
     information which the Lender or the shipbroker or expert may request for
     the purposes of the valuation; and, if the Borrowers fail to provide the
     information by the date specified in the request, the valuation may be made
     on any basis and assumptions which the shipbroker or the Lender (or the
     expert appointed by it) considers prudent.

14.7 PAYMENT OF VALUATION EXPENSES. Without prejudice to the generality of the
     Borrowers' obligations under Clauses 19.2, 19.3 and 20.3, the Borrowers
     shall, on demand, pay the Lender the amount of the fees and expenses of any
     shipbroker or expert instructed by the Lender under this Clause and all

     contemplated by this Agreement); and

     York City (SWIFT address: CHASEUS33) or to such other account with such
     other bank as the Lender may from time to time notify to the Borrowers.

15.2 PAYMENT ON NON-BUSINESS DAY. If any payment by any Borrower under a Finance
     Document would otherwise fall due on a day which is not a Business Day:

(a)  the due date shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day; or

(b)  if the next succeeding Business Day falls in the next calendar month, the
     due date shall be brought forward to the immediately preceding Business
     Day,

     and interest shall be payable during any extension under paragraph (a) at
     the rate payable on the original due date.

15.3 BASIS FOR CALCULATION OF PERIODIC PAYMENTS. All interest and any other
     payments under any Finance Document which are of an annual or periodic
     nature shall accrue from day to day and shall be calculated on the basis of
     the actual number of days elapsed and a 360 day year.

15.4 LENDER ACCOUNTS. The Lender shall maintain an account showing the amounts
     advanced by the Lender and all other sums owing to the Lender from the
     Borrowers and each Security Party under the Finance Documents and all
     payments in respect of those amounts made by the Borrowers and any Security
     Party.

15.5 ACCOUNTS PRIMA FACIE EVIDENCE. If the account maintained under Clauses 15.4
     shows an amount to be owing by a Borrower or a Security Party to the
     Lender, that account shall be prima facie evidence that that amount is
     owing to the Lender.

16   APPLICATION OF RECEIPTS

16.1 NORMAL ORDER OF APPLICATION. Except as any Finance Document may otherwise
     provide, any sums which are received or recovered by the Lender under or by
     virtue of any Finance Document shall be applied:

(a)  FIRST: in or towards satisfaction of any amounts then due and payable under
     the Finance Documents (or any of them) in such order of application and/or
     such proportions as the Lender may specify by notice to the Borrowers and
     the Security Parties;

(b)  SECONDLY: in retention of an amount equal to any amount not then due and
     payable under any Finance Document but which the Lender, by notice to the
     Borrowers and the Security Parties, states in its opinion will or may
     become due and payable in the future and, upon those amounts becoming due
     and payable, in or towards satisfaction of them in accordance with the
     provisions of this Clause; and

(c)  THIRDLY: any surplus shall be paid to the Borrowers or to any other person
     appearing to be entitled to it.


                                       40



16.2 VARIATION OF ORDER OF APPLICATION. The Lender may, at its reasonable
     discretion, by notice to the Borrowers and the Security Parties, provide
     for a different manner of application from that set out in Clause 16.1
     either as regards a specified sum or sums or as regards sums in a specified
     category or categories.

16.3 NOTICE OF VARIATION OF ORDER OF APPLICATION. The Lender may give notices
     under Clause 16.2 from time to time; and such a notice may be stated to
     apply not only to sums which may be received or recovered in the future,
     but also to any sum which has been received or recovered on or after the
     third Business Day before the date on which the notice is served.

16.4 APPROPRIATION RIGHTS OVERRIDDEN. This Clause 16 and any notice which the
     Lender gives under Clause 16.2 shall override any right of appropriation
     possessed, and any appropriation made, by any Borrower or any Security
     Party.

17   APPLICATION OF EARNINGS

17.1 PAYMENT OF EARNINGS. Each Shipowner undertakes with the Lender to ensure
     that, throughout the Security Period:

(a)  (subject only to the provisions of the General Assignments to which that
     Shipowner is a party), all the Earnings of the Ship owned by it are paid to
     the Earnings Account; and

(b)  all payments by the Lender to a Borrower under each Transaction are paid to
     the Earnings Account.

17.2 APPLICATION OF EARNINGS. Each Shipowner undertakes with the Lenders that
     money from time to time credited to, or for the time being standing to the
     credit of, the Earnings Account shall, unless and until an Event of Default
     or Potential Event of Default shall have occurred (whereupon the provisions
     of Clause 16.1 shall be and become applicable), be available for
     application in the following manner:

(a)  in or towards meeting the costs and expenses from time to time incurred by
     or on behalf of the relevant Shipowner in connection with the operation of
     the Ship owned by it;

(b)  in or towards making payments of all amounts due and payable by the
     Borrowers under this Agreement other than the payments of principal and
     interest pursuant to Clauses 7.1 and 4.1;

(c)  in or towards making the transfers to the Retention Account required
     pursuant to Clause 17.3; and

(d)  as to any surplus from time to time arising on the Earnings Account
     following application as aforesaid, to be paid to the relevant Shipowner or
     to whomsoever it may direct.

17.3 MONTHLY RETENTIONS. The Borrowers undertake with the Lender to ensure that,
     on the date falling one month after the date on which the final Drawdown
     Notice is served and on the same day in each subsequent month throughout
     the Security Period, there is transferred to the Retention Account out of
     the Earnings received in the Earnings Account during the preceding month:

(a)  one-third of the amount of the repayment instalment falling due under
     Clause 7 on the next Repayment Date; and

(b)  the relevant fraction of the aggregate amount of interest on the Loan which
     is payable on the next due date for payment of interest under this
     Agreement.


                                       41



     The "RELEVANT FRACTION" is a fraction of which the numerator is 1 and the
     denominator the number of months comprised in the then current Interest
     Period (or, if the period is shorter, the number of months from the later
     of the commencement of the current Interest Period or the last due date for
     payment of interest to the next due date for payment of interest under this
     Agreement).

17.4 SHORTFALL IN EARNINGS. If the aggregate Earnings received in the Earnings
     Account are insufficient in any month for the required amount to be
     transferred to the Retention Account under Clause 17.3, the Borrowers shall
     make up the amount of the insufficiency on demand from the Lender; but,
     without thereby prejudicing the Lender's right to make such demand at any
     time, the Lender may permit the Borrowers to make up all or part of the
     insufficiency by increasing the amount of any transfer under Clause 17.3
     from the Earnings received in the next or subsequent months.

17.5 APPLICATION OF RETENTIONS. Until an Event of Default or a Potential Event
     of Default occurs, the Lender shall on each Repayment Date and on each due
     date for the payment of interest under this Agreement apply in accordance
     with Clause 15.1 so much of the balance on the Retention Account as equals:

(a)  the repayment instalment due on that Repayment Date; or

(b)  the amount of interest payable on that interest payment date,

     in discharge of the Borrowers' liability for that repayment instalment or
     that interest.

17.6 INTEREST ACCRUED ON RETENTION ACCOUNT. Any credit balance on the Retention
     Account shall bear interest at the rate from time to time offered by the
     Lender to its customers for Dollar deposits of similar amounts and for
     periods similar to those for which such balances appear to the Lender
     likely to remain on the Retention Account.

17.7 RELEASE OF ACCRUED INTEREST. Interest accruing under Clause 17.6 shall be
     released to the Borrowers on each Repayment Date unless an Event of Default
     or a Potential Event of Default has occurred or the then credit balance on
     the Retention Account is less than what would have been the balance had the
     full amount required by Clause 17.3 been transferred in that and each
     previous month.

17.8 LOCATION OF ACCOUNTS. Each Borrower shall promptly:

(a)  comply with any requirement of the Lender as to the location or re-location
     of the Earnings Account and the Retention Account (or either of them); and

(b)  execute any documents which the Lender specifies to create or maintain in
     favour of the Lender a Security Interest over (and/or rights of set-off,
     consolidation or other rights in relation to) the Earnings Account and the
     Retention Account.

17.9 DEBITS FOR EXPENSES ETC. The Lender shall be entitled (but not obliged)
     from time to time to debit the Earnings Account without prior notice in
     order to discharge any amount due and payable to it under Clause 19 or 20
     or payment of which it has become entitled to demand under Clause 19 or 20.

17.10 BORROWERS' OBLIGATIONS UNAFFECTED. The provisions of this Clause 17 (as
      distinct from a distribution effected under Clause 17.5) do not affect:

(a)  the liability of the Borrowers to make payments of principal and interest
     on the due dates; or


                                       42

     under any Finance Document.

     notice served under paragraph (a) or (b), the Lender is entitled to take
     under any Finance Document or any applicable law.

18.3 TERMINATION OF COMMITMENT. On the service of a notice under Clause 18.2(a)
     the Commitment, and all other obligations of the Lender to the Borrowers
     under this Agreement, shall terminate.

                                       45



18.5 MULTIPLE NOTICES; ACTION WITHOUT NOTICE. The Lender may serve notices
     Clauses 18.2(a) and (b) simultaneously or on different dates and it may

     simultaneously with or at any time after the service of both or either of
     such notices.

18.6 EXCLUSION OF LENDER LIABILITY. Neither the Lender nor any receiver or
     manager appointed by the Lender, shall have any liability to a Borrower or
     a Security Party:

(a)  for any loss caused by an exercise of rights under, or enforcement of a
     Security Interest created by, a Finance Document or by any failure or delay
     to exercise such a right or to enforce such a Security Interest; or

(b)  as mortgagee in possession or otherwise, for any income or principal amount
     which might have been produced by or realised from any asset comprised in
     such a Security Interest or for any reduction (however caused) in the value
     of such an asset,

     except that this does not exempt the Lender or a receiver or manager from
     liability for losses shown to have been caused directly and mainly by the
     dishonesty or the wilful misconduct of the Lender's own officers and
     employees or (as the case may be) such receiver's or manager's own partners
     or employees.

     amount, or aggregate amount, is due shall be prima facie evidence that the

20   INDEMNITIES

20.1 INDEMNITIES REGARDING BORROWING AND REPAYMENT OF LOAN. The Borrowers shall
     fully indemnify made or brought against the Lender on its demand in respect
     of all claims, expenses, liabilities and losses which are incurred by the
     Lender, or which the Lender reasonably and with due diligence estimates
     that it will incur, as a result of or in connection with:

(a)  an Advance not being borrowed on the date specified in the Drawdown Notice
     for any reason other than a default by the Lender;

(b)  the receipt or recovery of all or any part of the Loan or an overdue sum
     otherwise than on the last day of an Interest Period or other relevant
     period;

(c)  any failure (for whatever reason) by the Borrowers to make payment of any
     amount due under a Finance Document on the due date or, if so payable, on
     demand (after giving credit for any default interest paid by the Borrowers
     on the amount concerned under Clause 6);

(d)  the occurrence and/or continuance of an Event of Default or a Potential
     Event of Default and/or the acceleration of repayment of the Loan under
     Clause 18,

     and in respect of any tax (other than tax on its overall net income) for
     which the Lender is liable in connection with any amount paid or payable to
     the Lender (whether for its own account or otherwise) under any Finance
     Document.

20.2 BREAKAGE COSTS. Without limiting its generality, Clause 20.1 covers any
     claim, expense, liability or loss, including a loss of a prospective
     profit, incurred by the Lender:

(a)  in liquidating or employing deposits from third parties acquired or
     arranged to fund or maintain all or any part of the Loan and/or any overdue
     amount (or an aggregate amount which includes the Loan or any overdue
     amount); and

(b)  in terminating, or otherwise in connection with, any interest and/or
     currency swap or any other transaction entered into (whether with another
     legal entity or with another office or department of the Lender) to hedge
     any exposure arising under this Agreement or a number of transactions of
     which this Agreement is one.

20.3 MISCELLANEOUS INDEMNITIES. The Borrowers shall fully indemnify the Lender
     on its demand in respect of all claims, expenses, liabilities and losses
     which may be made or brought against or incurred by the Lender, in any
     country, as a result of or in connection with:


                                       47



(a)  any action taken, or omitted or neglected to be taken, under or in
     connection with any Finance Document by the Lender or by any receiver
     appointed under a Finance Document;

(b)  any other Pertinent Matter,

     other than claims, expenses, liabilities and losses which are shown to have
     been directly and mainly caused by the dishonesty or wilful misconduct of
     the officers or employees of the Lender.

     Without prejudice to its generality, this Clause 20.3 covers any claims,
     expenses, liabilities and losses which arise, or are asserted, under or in
     connection with any law relating to safety at sea, the ISM Code, the ISPS
     Code or any Environmental Law.

20.4 CURRENCY INDEMNITY. If any sum due from any Borrower or any Security Party
     to the Lender under a Finance Document or under any order or judgment
     relating to a Finance Document has to be converted from the currency in
     which the Finance Document provided for the sum to be paid (the
     "CONTRACTUAL CURRENCY") into another currency (the "PAYMENT CURRENCY") for
     the purpose of:

(a)  making or lodging any claim or proof against any Borrower or any Security
     Party, whether in its liquidation, any arrangement involving it or
     otherwise; or

(b)  obtaining an order or judgment from any court or other tribunal; or

(c)  enforcing any such order or judgment,

     the Borrowers shall indemnify the Lender against the loss arising when the
     amount of the payment actually received by the Lender is converted at the
     available rate of exchange into the Contractual Currency.

     In this Clause 20.4, the "AVAILABLE RATE OF EXCHANGE" means the rate at
     which the Lender is able at the opening of business (London time) on the
     Business Day after it receives the sum concerned to purchase the
     Contractual Currency with the Payment Currency.

     This Clause 20.4 creates a separate liability of the Borrowers which is
     distinct from their other liabilities under the Finance Documents and which
     shall not be merged in any judgment or order relating to those other
     liabilities.

20.5 APPLICATION OF MASTER AGREEMENT. For the avoidance of doubt, Clause 20.4
     does not apply in respect of sums due from the Borrowers to the Lender
     under or in connection with the Master Agreement as to which sums the
     provisions of Section 8 (Contractual Currency) of the Master Agreement
     shall apply.

20.6 CERTIFICATION OF AMOUNTS. A notice which is signed by 2 officers of the
     Lender, which states that a specified amount, or aggregate amount, is due
     to the Lender under this Clause 20 and which indicates (without necessarily
     specifying a detailed breakdown) the matters in respect of which the
     amount, or aggregate amount, is due shall be prima facie evidence that the
     amount, or aggregate amount, is due.

21   NO SET-OFF OR TAX DEDUCTION

21.1 NO DEDUCTIONS. All amounts due from the Borrowers under a Finance Document
     shall be paid:

(a)  without any form of set-off, cross-claim or condition; and


                                       48



(b)  free and clear of any tax deduction except a tax deduction which a Borrower
     is required by law to make.

21.2 GROSSING-UP FOR TAXES. If a Borrower is required by law to make a tax
     deduction from any payment:

(a)  that Borrower shall notify the Lender as soon as it becomes aware of the
     requirement;

(b)  that Borrower shall pay the tax deducted to the appropriate taxation
     authority promptly, and in any event before any fine or penalty arises; and

(c)  the amount due in respect of the payment shall be increased by the amount
     necessary to ensure that the Lender receives and retains (free from any
     liability relating to the tax deduction) a net amount which, after the tax
     deduction, is equal to the full amount which it would otherwise have
     received.

21.3 EVIDENCE OF PAYMENT OF TAXES. Within one month after making any tax
     deduction, the Borrower concerned shall deliver to the Lender documentary
     evidence satisfactory to the Lender that the tax had been paid to the
     appropriate taxation authority.

21.4 EXCLUSION OF TAX ON OVERALL NET INCOME. In this Clause 21 "TAX DEDUCTION"
     means any deduction or withholding for or on account of any present or
     future tax except tax on the Lender's overall net income.

21.5 APPLICATION OF MASTER AGREEMENT. For the avoidance of doubt, Clause 21 does
     not apply in respect of sums due from the Borrowers to the Lender under or
     in connection with the Master Agreement as to which sums the provisions of
     Section 2(d) (Deduction or Withholding for Tax) of the Master Agreement
     shall apply.

22   ILLEGALITY, ETC

22.1 ILLEGALITY. This Clause 22 applies if the Lender notifies the Borrowers
     that it has become, or will with effect from a specified date, become:

(a)  unlawful or prohibited as a result of the introduction of a new law, an
     amendment to an existing law or a change in the manner in which an existing
     law is or will be interpreted or applied; or

(b)  contrary to, or inconsistent with, any regulation,

     for the Lender to maintain or give effect to any of its obligations under
     this Agreement in the manner contemplated by this Agreement.

22.2 NOTIFICATION AND EFFECT OF ILLEGALITY. On the Lender notifying the
     Borrowers under Clause 22.1, the Commitment shall terminate; and thereupon
     or, if later, on the date specified in the Lender's notice under Clause
     22.1 as the date on which the notified event would become effective the
     Borrowers shall prepay the Loan in full in accordance with Clause 7.

22.3 MITIGATION. If circumstances arise which would result in a notification
     under Clause 22.1 then, without in any way limiting the rights of the
     Lender under Clause 22.3, the Lender shall use reasonable endeavours to
     transfer its obligations, liabilities and rights under this Agreement and
     the Finance Documents to another office or financial institution not
     affected by the circumstances but the Lender shall not be under any
     obligation to take any such action if, in its opinion, to do would or
     might:

(a)  have an adverse effect on its business, operations or financial condition;
     or


                                       49



(b)  involve it in any activity which is unlawful or prohibited or any activity
     that is contrary to, or inconsistent with, any regulation; or

(c)  involve it in any expense (unless indemnified to its satisfaction) or tax
     disadvantage.

23   INCREASED COSTS

23.1 INCREASED COSTS. This Clause 23 applies if the Lender notifies the
     Borrowers that it considers that as a result of:

(a)  the introduction or alteration after the date of this Agreement of a law or
     an alteration after the date of this Agreement in the manner in which a law
     is interpreted or applied (disregarding any effect which relates to the
     application to payments under this Agreement of a tax on the Lender's
     overall net income); or

(b)  complying with any regulation (including any which relates to capital
     adequacy or liquidity controls or which affects the manner in which the
     Lender allocates capital resources to its obligations under this Agreement)
     which is introduced, or altered, or the interpretation or application of
     which is altered, after the date of this Agreement,

     the Lender (or a parent company of it) has incurred or will incur an
     "INCREASED COST".

23.2 MEANING OF "INCREASED COST". In this Clause 23, "INCREASED COST" means:

(a)  an additional or increased cost incurred as a result of, or in connection
     with, the Lender having entered into, or being a party to, this Agreement
     or having taken an assignment of rights under this Agreement, of funding or
     maintaining the Commitment or performing its obligations under this
     Agreement, or of having outstanding all or any part of the Loan or other
     unpaid sums; or

(b)  a reduction in the amount of any payment to the Lender under this Agreement
     or in the effective return which such a payment represents to the Lender or
     on its capital;

(c)  an additional or increased cost of funding all or maintaining all or any of
     the advances comprised in a class of advances formed by or including the
     Loan or (as the case may require) the proportion of that cost attributable
     to the Loan; or

(d)  a liability to make a payment, or a return foregone, which is calculated by
     reference to any amounts received or receivable by the Lender under this
     Agreement,

     but not an item attributable to a change in the rate of tax on the overall
     net income of the Lender (or a parent company of it) or an item covered by
     the indemnity for tax in Clause 20.1 or by Clause 21.

     For the purposes of this Clause 23.2 the Lender may in good faith allocate
     or spread costs and/or losses among its assets and liabilities (or any
     class of its assets and liabilities) on such basis as it considers
     appropriate.

23.3 PAYMENT OF INCREASED COSTS. The Borrowers shall pay to the Lender, on its
     demand, the amounts which the Lender from time to time notifies the
     Borrowers that it has specified to be necessary to compensate it for the
     increased cost.

23.4 NOTICE OF PREPAYMENT. If the Borrowers are not willing to continue to
     compensate the Lender for the increased cost under Clause 23.3, the
     Borrowers may give the Lender not less than 14 days' notice of their
     intention to prepay the Loan at the end of an Interest Period.


                                       50



23.5 PREPAYMENT. A notice under Clause 23.4 shall be irrevocable; and on the
     date specified in the Borrowers' notice of intended prepayment, the
     Commitment shall terminate and the Borrowers shall prepay (without premium
     or penalty) the Loan, together with accrued interest thereon at the
     applicable rate plus the Margin.

23.6 APPLICATION OF PREPAYMENT. Clause 7 shall apply in relation to the
     prepayment.

(a)  apply any balance (whether or not then due) which at any time stands to the
     credit of any account in the name of a Borrower at any office in any
     country of the Lender in or towards satisfaction of any sum then due from
     that Borrower to the Lender under any of the Finance Documents; and

(b)  for that purpose:

     (i)  break, or alter the maturity of, all or any part of a deposit of that
          Borrower;

          balance into Dollars; and

     (iii) enter into any other transaction or make any entry with regard to the
          credit balance which the Lender considers appropriate.

24.2 EXISTING RIGHTS UNAFFECTED. The Lender shall not be obliged to exercise any
     of its rights under Clause 24.1; and those rights shall be without
     prejudice and in addition to any right of set-off, combination of accounts,
     charge, lien or other right or remedy to which the Lender is entitled
     (whether under the general law or any document).

24.3 NO SECURITY INTEREST. This Clause 24 gives the Lender a contractual right
     of set-off only, and does not create any equitable charge or other Security
     Interest over any credit balance of the Borrower.

25   TRANSFERS AND CHANGES IN LENDING OFFICE

25.1 TRANSFER BY BORROWERS. No Borrower may, without the consent of the Lender
     transfer any of its rights or obligations under any Finance Document.

     under or by virtue of the Finance Documents shall be entitled to recover
     damages by reference to the loss incurred by that assignee as a result of
     the breach or misrepresentation irrespective of whether the Lender would
     have incurred a loss of that kind or amount.

25.4 SUB-PARTICIPATION; SUBROGATION ASSIGNMENT. The Lender may sub-participate
     all or any part of its rights and/or obligations under or in connection

                                       51



     manner and terms agreed by it, all or any part of those rights to an
     insurer or surety who has become subrogated to them.

     or sub-participant any information which the Lender has received in

     waive, suspend or limit any provision of a Finance Document, or the
     Lender's rights or remedies under such a provision or the general law, only

     the Borrowers and the Lender and, if the document relates to a Finance
     Document to which a Security Party is party, by that Security Party.

26.2 EXCLUSION OF OTHER OR IMPLIED VARIATIONS. Except for a document which
     satisfies the requirements of Clause 26.1, no document, and no act, course
     of conduct, failure or neglect to act, delay or acquiescence on the part of
     the Lender (or any person acting on its behalf) shall result in the Lender
     (or any person acting on its behalf) being taken to have varied, waived,
