1.4                               SPMT may consider contractual arrangements with third party customers for services at the Terminal, provided such arrangements do not prevent SPMT from fulfilling its obligations to PES hereunder. Nothing herein shall be deemed to provide PES with exclusive rights to services at the Terminal. SPMT shall have the right to determine which storage tanks to use for crude oil storage; provided, however, that, other than in an event of an emergency, SPMT shall not commingle or permit the commingling of any crude oil delivered for the account of PES or its designees with products of any other Person.

 

1.5                               Without limiting the generality of Section 2.1, SPMT shall operate and maintain the Terminal in accordance with, and PES shall comply with the terms of, the port manual covering operations at the Terminal (such manual, as in effect from time to time, the “Operations Manual”). A copy of the Operations Manual in effect as of the Effective Date is attached hereto as Attachment 1. SPMT shall have the right to amend the Operations Manual from time to time; provided, however, that: (a) the Operations Manual shall at all times (i) pertain exclusively to operational requirements at the Terminal, (ii) apply equally to all Persons utilizing the Terminal, and (iii) include operating requirements and conditions that are generally consistent with those governing operations at other similar facilities owned and operated by SPMT and its Affiliates taking into account differences in operations at the facilities; and (b) SPMT shall provide PES with reasonable advance notice of the effective date of any such amendments.

 

2.                                      Maintenance of Terminal.

 

2.1                               SPMT shall operate and maintain the Terminal and the Facilities in good working order in accordance with Prudent Industry Practice and applicable law. For purposes of this Agreement, “Prudent Industry Practice” means, as of the relevant time, those lawful practices, methods and acts generally engaged in or approved by the pipeline and terminaling industries (as applicable) in the United States that, in the exercise of reasonable judgment in light of the circumstances known at the time of performance, would have been expected to accomplish the desired result at a reasonable cost consistent with functionality, reliability, safety and expedition with due regard for health, safety, security and environmental considerations. Prudent Industry Practice is not intended to be limited to the optimum practices, methods or acts to the exclusion of others, but rather is intended to include acceptable practices, methods and acts generally engaged in or approved by the pipeline and terminaling industries (as applicable) in the United States.

 

2.2                               SPMT shall conduct maintenance at the Terminal in such a manner as to avoid or reasonably minimize any disruptions in service to PES. SPMT shall provide PES with as much advance notice as may be reasonably practicable of any maintenance that will affect PES’s operations.

 

3.                                      Services to be Performed by SPMT.

 

3.1                               SPMT shall receive deliveries of Petroleum into the Terminal by vessel and pipeline, and store and handle such Petroleum for PES in and through the Terminal as described in this Agreement.

 

** Certain information in this document has been omitted and filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Confidential treatment has been requested with respect to the omitted portions.

SPMT shall have no obligation to receive or handle cargoes with crude oil properties other than those specified above. Any deviations from the specifications above require a minimum 30 day notice to, and review with, SPMT prior to agreement to schedule such a delivery. SPMT may, in its sole discretion, elect to receive and handle non-conforming crude oil cargoes in accordance with general industry practice, subject to the physical limitations of the Terminal. In no event, however, shall SPMT be required to receive into tanks at the Terminal any crude oil with properties which would result, in SPMT’s sole opinion, in SPMT’s non-compliance with federal, state, or local law or regulatory requirements. All requests for SPMT to handle non-conforming crude oil will be documented by a Special Movement Request Form (attached as Exhibit A and incorporated herein) and forwarded to, and approved by, SPMT Terminal Operations Supervisor. In addition, Exhibit B attached sets forth previously approved crude types with their associated restrictions.

 

3.3                               In addition to crude oil, SPMT will receive, store and handle bunker fuel, marine diesel fuel, naphtha, vacuum gas oil/residual fuel, reformate, raffinate and various gasoline components. Should PES desire SPMT to move Petroleum through the Terminal that has not historically been handled by the Terminal, PES shall request SPMT handle such Petroleum using the Special Movement Request Form, to be sent to, and approved by, the SPMT Terminal Operations Supervisor.

3.4                               SPMT shall deliver Petroleum out of the tankage and into connecting pipelines or onto vessels in accordance with PES’s reasonable instructions, subject to scheduling and any other operational limitations at the Terminal as set forth in the Operations Manual.

 

3.5                               Four crude oil tanks and two bunker fuel tanks at the Terminal and included in Section 1.1 are equipped with heating coils. SPMT shall provide heat to maintain the Petroleum in these tanks at the temperature at which SPMT received the Petroleum (but in no case higher than 115° F), the cost of which is included in the throughput fees stipulated in Section 7. If SPMT receives any Petroleum which has a temperature less than 115° F and PES desires SPMT to heat the Petroleum to a higher temperature, SPMT shall do so, to the extent the Facilities are capable at the time, and thereafter SPMT shall be entitled to charge PES a steaming charge of $[**] per hour or any portion thereof for such steaming until the higher temperature requested by PES is achieved, which charge shall be paid by PES. In the event that the Facilities become incapable of heating Petroleum to temperatures in excess of the temperature at which SPMT received delivery of such Petroleum, SPMT shall, to the extent that SPMT determines it to be commercially reasonable to do so, repair or replace that portion of the Facilities necessary to enable SPMT to heat the Petroleum to temperatures in excess of the temperature at which SPMT received delivery of such Petroleum.

 

3.6                               In the event that SPMT enters into a contractual agreement with a third party at the Terminal, SPMT will ensure that the equipment and procedures are in place to preserve PES Petroleum quality and minimize Petroleum losses, consistent with Prudent Industry Practice.

 

4.                                      Marine Fuel.

 

4.1                               As part of the Section 3 services for Petroleum, SPMT shall receive, store and deliver bunker fuel (i.e., IFO 380, IFO 180, Bunker C) and MDO (collectively, “Marine Fuel”) at the Terminal and/or the Facilities in the manner set forth herein. The term “Petroleum” as used herein shall include Marine Fuel, except where such Marine Fuel is expressly excluded from that definition. Specifically, SPMT agrees to: (1) unload barges and vessels transporting Marine Fuel (referred to in this Section 4 as “Delivery Vessels”) for storage; (2) deliver Marine Fuel to barges, tugs, and ships which use the Terminal to supply crude oil and petroleum product to SPMT; and (3) deliver Marine Fuel to certain tugs and barges which use the Terminal for the sole purpose of being supplied with Marine Fuel. The vessels referenced in clauses (2) and (3) of the preceding sentence shall be referred to as “Receiving Vessels”.

 

4.2                               SPMT is willing to handle Marine Fuels at the Terminal in the manner described in this Section 4 and in Section 3, provided that SPMT’s crude oil operations are not, in the reasonable discretion of SPMT, adversely effected by such activities.

 

4.3                               SPMT agrees to permit Delivery Vessels and Receiving Vessels to dock at the Terminal for the purposes of unloading, storing, throughputting and loading Marine Fuel associated with PES’s throughput. Twenty four hour minimum notice is to be given by PES to SPMT prior to any unloading, storing, throughputting or loading Marine Fuel. Such activity shall be subject to SPMT’s reasonable scheduling requirements as set forth in the Operating Manual. SPMT may permit vessels, not associated with PES’s throughput, to use the Terminal.

 

** Certain information in this document has been omitted and filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Confidential treatment has been requested with respect to the omitted portions.

4.4                               PES’s throughput of Marine Fuel at the Terminal shall be limited to a total of [**] Delivery Vessels per month. PES may have additional Delivery Vessels dock at the Terminal provided SPMT grants its prior approval for such additional Delivery Vessels on a vessel-by-vessel basis, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.

 

4.5                               At the request of PES, SPMT shall deliver Marine Fuel from the Terminal to Receiving Vessels. SPMT shall provide labor, pumps, and power within the Terminal necessary for all discharge, storage, throughput, transferring, blending, loading, and gauging operations, the charge for which is included in the throughput fees detailed in Section 6 hereof. SPMT shall charge the Terminal’s standard line handling and hose connection fees for all Delivery Vessels and Receiving Vessels.

 

4.6                               PES shall maintain a minimum inbound bunker fuel pump rate of 4,000 barrels per hour and a minimum inbound MDO pump rate of 3,000 barrels per hour (when using the ten inch (10”) hose). SPMT shall maintain maximum outbound bunker fuel pump rate of 3,000 barrels per hour and outbound MDO pump rates of: (1) 1,500 barrels per hour on the ten inch (10”) discharge hose, and (2) 357 barrels per hour on the six inch (6”) discharge hose. Delivery Vessels shall maintain product a temperature of 100° F at the vessel’s rail.

 

4.7                               For the current configuration of the Terminal, PES agrees that the Marine Fuel delivered and stored hereunder shall have a level of H2S not to exceed 50 PPM by weight in the fuel delivered to the Terminal. Should the level of H2S exceed the limits set forth herein upon inspection of the cargo tanks, PES shall not be permitted to unload any such Delivery Vessel unless approved by SPMT. If, during the Term of this Agreement, PES and SPMT agree to modify the configuration of the Terminal, PES agrees that the engineering and installation of additive equipment placed at the Terminal at PES’s request shall be subject to SPMT’s approval, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, and to observation and inspection by SPMT for the treatment of hydrogen sulfide in the Marine Fuel.

 

4.8                               Unless SPMT agrees in writing to the contrary, such additive equipment shall be the property of PES, and PES shall pay for, operate, and maintain such items and, upon termination of this Agreement, remove such items and restore the facilities to their condition prior to the installation of such items, normal wear and tear excepted. Upon completion of the installation of such equipment, SPMT shall be permitted to discharge Marine Fuel in excess of the above provided stated limits. However, in no event shall SPMT be required to unload and treat Marine Fuel with a level of H2S in excess of 500 PPM by weight in the fuel provided that the head space H2S concentration does not exceed 50 PPM by volume in the head space or ambient environment after treatment.

 

4.9                               If the level of H2S is found to exceed the above stated limits, PES shall additize the Marine Fuel upon inspection of the cargo with an additive reasonably acceptable to SPMT. Whenever a cargo of Marine Fuel may require treatment with an additive as described herein, PES agrees to notify SPMT prior to cargo inspection so that SPMT employees shall be advised of the necessity to wear personal protective equipment.

 

4.10                        Subject to the limitation of damages set forth herein, PES’s failure to notify SPMT about excessive H2S content of a cargo, or failure to treat the Marine Fuel so that

 

** Certain information in this document has been omitted and filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Confidential treatment has been requested with respect to the omitted portions.

the level of H2S is below the above stated limits, shall result in PES being liable for all damages resulting therefrom and PES agrees to indemnify SPMT for any loss, damage, and expense suffered by SPMT as a result of PES’s failure to notify or treat as described herein.

 

5.                                      Marine Dock Procedures.

 

5.1                               PES shall not permit a Delivery Vessel or Receiving Vessel to be left unmanned while it is moored at the Facilities. SPMT assumes no responsibility for the seaworthiness of any Delivery Vessel or Receiving Vessel.

 

5.2                               Following each bunkering operation, SPMT shall displace the line with air or nitrogen. Only in emergency situations shall SPMT have the right to use Petroleum as line flush.

 

5.3                               PES shall comply with, and shall cause all Delivery Vessels and Receiving Vessels to comply with, all rules and regulations, including environmental, safety, and health rules and regulations, set forth in the Operations Manual.

 

5.4                               SPMT shall provide tank-to-tank blending services for Petroleum at the Terminal. Transfers of Petroleum between the storage tanks (i.e., Tanks No. 866 and No. 867) will be permitted a maximum of twice per week. PES will pay a fee of $[**] for each additional transfer.

 

5.5                               SPMT agrees to comply with PES’s blending instructions, but in no way shall SPMT warrant the fitness of the Petroleum for any particular use or purpose, nor shall SPMT warrant the merchantability of the blended Petroleum. PES is responsible for meeting all ASTM D975 requirements for Petroleum delivered into the Terminal. Petroleum with low conductivity shall require a conductivity / lubricity additive in accordance with ASTM D975. Additization of Petroleum will be the responsibility of PES. Additization of Petroleum will typically occur prior to offload at the Terminal. However PES may additize at the Terminal or into a vessel with sufficient notice to SPMT and approval by SPMT, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.

 

5.6                               SPMT SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGES RESULTING FROM AN ACCIDENT OCCURRING IN ANY FEDERALLY MAINTAINED WATERWAY. SPMT SHALL HAVE NO DUTY TO SCAN OR SURVEY FEDERALLY MAINTAINED WATERWAYS OR ANY CHANNEL EXTENDING FROM THE FEDERALLY MAINTAINED WATERWAY TO ANY BERTH AT THE FACILITIES FOR THE PURPOSE OF ATTEMPTING TO LOCATE SUBMERGED OBJECTS THAT COULD POTENTIALLY INTERFERE WITH NAVIGATION.

 

6.                                      Annual Volume.

 

6.1                               During the Term of this Agreement, PES will deliver an average of at least 300,000 barrels per day of Petroleum to the Terminal per Contract Year (“Minimum Volume Commitment”). The Minimum Volume Commitment shall be reduced to the extent that PES is unable to deliver Petroleum due to the inability or failure of SPMT to receive, store, handle or

 

** Certain information in this document has been omitted and filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Confidential treatment has been requested with respect to the omitted portions.

 

7



 

deliver Petroleum at the Terminal for any reason other than (i) any failure by PES to follow the nomination or other procedures set forth in the Operations Manual, (ii) lack of capacity to receive the Petroleum if PES delivers such Petroleum in excess of the available shell capacity for such specific grade of Petroleum and such lack of capacity is not due to a failure of SPMT’s equipment or tanks, or (iii) a breach of this Agreement by PES.

 

6.2                               Marine Fuels will not be credited toward the volume commitment in Section 6.1.

 

7.                                      Fees.

 

7.1                               PES will pay SPMT a throughput fee of $[**] per barrel of Petroleum (excluding Marine Fuel) received at the Terminal. These per barrel fees, together with the fees set forth in Section 3.5 and Section 5.4, will escalate at the rate equal to the CPI-All Urban Consumers-Philadelphia (rounded to the nearest one-hundredth of one cent) on January 1 of each year commencing January 1, 2013, not to exceed [**]% per annum.

 

7.2                               In addition to the fees set forth in Section 7.1, should PES determine to deliver Petroleum to the Terminal during any Contract Year that requires SPMT to provide heat, and operate its boiler system at the Terminal, PES will pay a fee of $[**] per barrel for Petroleum requiring heating services.

 

7.3                               Except as provided in this Agreement, PES shall not be subject to any charges or fees, including for mooring and unmooring of ships, independent inspection, laboratory testing, demurrage or extraordinary matters unless such fees are set forth and applicable pursuant to: (a) the then current Operations Manual; or (b) the Fee Schedule — Letter to Agents (the “Fee Schedule”), a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit C. SPMT shall have the right to amend the Fee Schedule from time to time, but no more frequently than once each year; provided, however, that: (a) any change to the fees must (i) be based on changes in SPMT’s out-of-pocket costs to provide the relevant services at the Terminal, which shall be passed through to PES with a commercially reasonable mark-up consistent with past practice, and (ii) apply equally to all Persons utilizing the Terminal; and (b) SPMT shall provide PES with reasonable advance notice of the effective date of any amendment to the Fee Schedule.

 

7.4                               Any crude oil having characteristics requiring abnormal handling, flushing, heating, cleaning etc. shall be treated as an abnormal delivery and all applicable fees associated with such delivery would be in addition to the normal delivery rates due to SPMT.

 

8.                                      Invoicing. SPMT shall submit invoices by facsimile or other electronic means to PES as follows:

 

8.1                               SPMT shall submit an invoice to PES by the 5th business day of each month for the net amount due under the terms of this Agreement for the previous month, and shall include the calculation of such amount and reasonably detailed supporting information upon which such amount was calculated.

 

8.2                               Payment for invoices sent to PES in accordance with Section 7 and this Section 8 are due by wire transfer in full to SPMT fifteen (15) business days after PES’s receipt

 

** Certain information in this document has been omitted and filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Confidential treatment has been requested with respect to the omitted portions.

 

8



 

of the invoice, provided that PES shall have the right to withhold any payments (other than a Deficiency Payment) disputed in good faith.

 

8.3                               Even if PES disputes any portion of an invoice, PES must timely pay the undisputed portion of the invoice. PES shall promptly notify SPMT in writing of any portion of an invoice which it disputes, and SPMT shall promptly work with PES to resolve such dispute. If PES fails to pay any disputed amount within thirty (30) days after the date on which the Parties have finally resolved or settled such dispute, via negotiation, or payment has been finally adjudicated or otherwise resolved, SPMT, in addition to other remedies it may have, may suspend service under this Agreement until such amount is paid.

 

8.4                               Should a Party fail to pay any undisputed amounts due hereunder, or any disputed amounts upon resolution of such dispute, such Party shall owe the other Party interest on such unpaid amounts at the rate of [**] per annum over the prime lending rate publicly announced from time to time by Citibank N.A. of New York, NY on ninety day loans to substantial and responsible commercial borrowers, but not to exceed any applicable interest criteria imposed by law on the unpaid principal balance, from the date payment was due until it is received (“Interest Rate”). A Party shall reimburse the other Party for all actual costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs) incurred by such other Party to collect overdue and unpaid amounts, including late payment charges, whether or not suit is brought.

 

9.                                      Deficiency Payments.

 

9.1                               As soon as practicable following the end of each Contract Year under this Agreement SPMT shall deliver to PES a written notice (the “Deficiency Notice”) detailing any failure of PES to meet the Minimum Volume Commitment for that Contract Year. The Deficiency Notice shall (1) specify in reasonable detail the nature of any deficiency (including identifying which provision of the Agreement has not been satisfied) and (2) specify the approximate dollar amount that SPMT believes would have been paid by PES to SPMT if PES had throughput the Minimum Volume Commitment (the “Deficiency Payment”). PES shall pay the Deficiency Payment to SPMT within 10 days of its receipt of the Deficiency Notice. For avoidance of doubt, the Parties acknowledge and agree that any failure of PES to throughput the Minimum Volume Commitment set forth herein, directly resulting from an event of Force Majeure declared by PES or SPMT or a breach of this Agreement by SPMT, shall not constitute a failure of PES to meet its obligations hereunder nor shall the same be included in the Deficiency Notice or Deficiency Payment.

 

9.2                               If PES disagrees with the Deficiency Notice, then following the payment of the Deficiency Payment to SPMT, appropriate, authorized representatives of PES and SPMT shall meet or communicate by telephone at a mutually acceptable time and place, and thereafter as often as they reasonably deem necessary and shall negotiate in good faith to attempt to resolve any difference that they may have with respect to matters specified in the Deficiency Notice. During the 30-day period following the payment of the Deficiency Payment, PES shall have access to the working papers of SPMT relating to the Deficiency Notice. If it is finally determined pursuant to this Section 9 that PES is not required to make any or all of the Deficiency Payment (the “Refund”), SPMT shall promptly pay to PES the Refund in immediately available funds including interest accrued at the Interest Rate.

 

** Certain information in this document has been omitted and filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Confidential treatment has been requested with respect to the omitted portions.

9.3                               To the extent that (i) a Deficiency Payment is made with respect to a Contract Year and (ii) there is throughput in excess of the Minimum Volume Commitment in the immediately following Contract Year (“Excess Throughput”), then PES will receive a credit for such Excess Throughput in an amount up to the amount of the Deficiency Payment relating to the immediately prior Contract Year.

 

10.                               Gauging.

 

10.1                        PES shall have the right to engage an independent inspector, at its sole expense, to determine the quantity of Petroleum delivered to, stored at, or redelivered from the Terminal hereunder. In the event that such an independent inspector determines such quantity, the results of such an inspection shall be final and binding on SPMT and PES. All such inspections shall be performed in accordance with API standards, Prudent Industry Practice and, if applicable, the Operations Manual. In lieu of the use of an independent inspector, PES shall have the right to have Petroleum quantities determined by the Terminal’s tank gauging system. Should PES choose not to engage an independent inspector, the quantity determinations through the use of the Terminal’s tank gauging system shall be binding on the Parties.

 

10.2                        Prior to each receipt and delivery of Marine Fuel, an independent inspector shall perform a physical wet gauge on all shore tanks and vessel tanks. The measurements made by the independent inspector shall be deemed to be the official volume of Marine Fuel received and/or delivered. Such determination shall not be made until any and all volume measurement discrepancies are identified, brought to the attention of and resolved by SPMT’s Terminal Operations Group and the vessel personnel.

 

11.                               Term of the Agreement.

 

11.1                        Unless earlier terminated in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, the term of this Agreement shall be ten (10) years (the “Term”), commencing on September 8, 2012 (the “Commencement Date”) and expiring on September 7, 2022. As used herein, “Contract Year” means a calendar year that commences on the Commencement Date or any anniversary thereof.

 

11.2                        A Party shall be in default under this Agreement if: (a) it fails to perform a material obligation; (b) such failure continues for a period of sixty (60) days after notice thereof or, if such failure cannot reasonably be cured within such sixty (60) day period, such longer period (not to exceed one hundred twenty (120) days) so long as such Party is diligently and continuously engaged in curing such failure.

 

11.3                        In the event a Party is in default of this Agreement pursuant to Section 11.2, the non-defaulting Party may terminate this Agreement upon notice to the defaulting Party.

 

12.                               Force Majeure.

 

12.1                        The term Force Majeure as used herein shall mean any cause not reasonably within the control of the Party claiming Force Majeure and which by the exercise of reasonable due diligence such Party is unable to prevent or overcome, which might include (under the appropriate circumstances) but shall not be limited to any of the following: acts of

God, strikes, lockouts, or other industrial disturbances, acts of the public enemy, wars, blockades, insurrections, terrorist activities, riots, storms, floods, port closures, perils of the sea, hurricanes, tornadoes, washouts, arrests of vessels, the order of any court or local, state, or federal governmental agency or authority having jurisdiction while the same is in force and effect, civil disturbances, explosions, breakage, breakdowns or accidents to facilities, machinery, equipment, chemical plant units or lines of pipe or inability to obtain or unavoidable delay in obtaining material, equipment, right of way easements, franchises, or permits.

 

12.2                        In the event either Party is rendered unable by an event of Force Majeure, in whole or in part, to perform its obligations under this Agreement (other than the obligation to make payment of amounts accrued hereunder when due), the obligations of such Party, so far as they are affected by such Force Majeure event, shall be suspended during the continuance of any inability so caused, but for no longer. The affected Party shall verbally notify the other Party of the occurrence of a Force Majeure event and the effects thereof as soon as is reasonably practicable, which verbal notice shall be followed up by a written notice confirming same, also as soon as is reasonably practicable. The affected Party shall use all commercially reasonable efforts to remedy the Force Majeure event, except that no Party shall be compelled to resolve any strikes, lockouts, or other industrial disputes other than as it shall determine to be in its best interests. The affected Party shall promptly notify the other Party in writing when the event of Force Majeure has terminated.

 

12.3                        If, during the Term of this Agreement, SPMT is unable to perform its obligations hereunder, PES shall be excused from its obligations (including its payment obligations and its Minimum Volume Commitment) to the extent relating to SPMT’s non-performance. In the event of a casualty affecting the Terminal or any Facilities, SPMT may, at its option, rebuild and reconstruct the Terminal or such Facilities; provided, however, that SPMT shall use all commercially reasonable efforts to substitute comparable storage facilities on an interim basis pending any such rebuilding or reconstruction. SPMT shall provide notice in writing of its intent (or not) to rebuild or reconstruct the Terminal or Facilities within sixty (60) days of the casualty event. If SPMT elects not to so rebuild and reconstruct, or if, despite SPMT’s commercially reasonable efforts, it is unable to provide comparable substitute facilities then, subject to PES’s Purchase Option (as defined below), either Party may terminate this Agreement without further obligation hereunder (other than obligations arising prior to such termination) upon ten (10) days written notice to the other Party.

 

13.                               New Regulations or Changes Thereto.

 

13.1                        In the event that any applicable existing laws, codes or regulations are amended or new laws, codes or regulations are enacted or promulgated after the Effective Date that require a capital investment in Facilities required to provide service to PES hereunder (a “Change in Law”), SPMT shall act reasonably and in good faith to secure a waiver from, exception to, or extension of the time to comply with such Change in Law for the remaining Term of this Agreement. If, despite such efforts, SPMT would incur incremental, out-of-pocket capital costs to comply with the Change in Law and satisfy its obligations to PES under this Agreement, SPMT may, by written notice to PES, request to negotiate an adjustment in the Throughput Fee or other fees and charges paid hereunder to cover PES’s share (taking into

consideration PES’s portion of the total throughput utilizing the affected Facilities) of the reasonable, incremental, costs SPMT would incur to comply with the Change in Law.

 

13.2                        If SPMT requests to negotiate an adjustment in fees and charges pursuant to Section 13.1: (a) SPMT shall provide PES with access to relevant information and documentation regarding such proposed adjustment, including the nature and cost of the contemplated improvements, SPMT’s reasoning as to the means of complying with the Change in Law if alternatives exist and the manner in which PES’s share of such costs are determined; and (b) the Parties shall be obligated to negotiate in good faith to agree to an adjustment as described in Section 13.1.

 

13.3                        If, despite good faith negotiations, the Parties are unable to agree to an adjustment pursuant to Section 13.1 in sufficient time for SPMT to take such action as shall be necessary to comply with the Change in Law, SPMT may, subject to PES’ Purchase Option (as defined below), terminate this Agreement without liability other than liabilities arising prior to such termination. In that event, the Parties shall reasonably cooperate to reach agreement on a schedule for terminating service hereunder.

 

14.                               Miscellaneous.

 

14.1                        PES agrees to allow SPMT to board PES’s delivery vessels, at SPMT’s risk and expense, during discharge or loading to observe operations. The term “delivery vessels” or ‘‘vessels” as used in this Section 14 shall include the Delivery Vessels included in Section 4.

 

14.2                        The Terminal is regulated by applicable laws and regulations under the auspices of relevant governing authorities including but not limited to the Maritime Transportation Security Act (“MTSA”), with an approved security plan conforming to the MTSA in place under the auspices of the Captain of the Port (“COTP”), Philadelphia, United States Coast Guard (“USCG”).

 

15.                               Audit Rights.

 

15.1                        PES shall have the right, reasonably exercised (1) to observe and verify SPMT’s performance of its services hereunder, and (2) to have ingress and egress to, from and within the Terminal to the extent required for the purposes of this Agreement and (3) to review and audit all of SPMT’s records related to the performance of this Agreement and make copies thereof, at reasonable times and at PES’s expense. None of these rights shall be exercised by PES in any way which will materially interfere with or diminish SPMT’s control over or its operation of the Terminal and PES shall be subject to reasonable rules and regulations promulgated by SPMT.

 

15.2                        Following any audit as provided above, any mutually agreed adjustment charge or credit to PES will be issued by SPMT within thirty (30) days after a copy of the completed audit is furnished to SPMT.

16.                               Taxes and Fees.

 

16.1                        PES shall pay, or cause to be paid, all taxes, import duties, license fees and other governmental charges, if any, levied on the Petroleum received, stored, delivered or otherwise handled by SPMT for PES hereunder. PES shall pay, or cause to be paid, all governmental charges imposed on the transfer of Petroleum from water borne carriers. PES shall indemnify and reimburse SPMT for all costs or expenses incurred and paid by SPMT in association with the foregoing taxes, expenses, fees or costs; provided, however, that PES shall not be responsible for any such taxes, duties, fees or charges based on SPMT’s income or earnings.

 

17.                               Customs Arrangements.

 

17.1                        SPMT shall not be responsible for making broker and customs arrangements in connection with Petroleum movements into and out of the Terminal hereunder. All charges resulting therefrom shall be for the account of PES.

 

18.                               Title and Responsibility.

 

18.1                        Title to Petroleum delivered to the Terminal pursuant to this Agreement shall remain always with PES or not more than one designee of PES, subject only to any lien(s) described in Section 18.2. Risk of loss of any such Petroleum shall remain always with PES or its designee(s); provided, however, that nothing in this Section 18 shall be deemed to bar recovery of amounts owed pursuant to this Agreement (including under an indemnity or as a result of SPMT’s breach hereof). SPMT’s custody of the Petroleum shall commence when it enters the flange connection of SPMT’s receiving line at the discharge line of the Delivering Vessel or pipeline and will terminate when it passes the flange connection of the Receiving Vessel or SPMT’s delivering pipeline.

 

18.2                        In no event shall SPMT have a lien or security interest on PES’s or its designees’ Petroleum stored or handled at the Terminal unless PES has failed to pay SPMT any fees for services (and not any other payments which may become due) described in this Agreement, including any exhibit, which are not disputed in good faith and such failure to pay has continued without being remedied for a period of thirty (30) days following receipt by PES of a written notice of such non-payment issued by SPMT.

 

18.3                        SPMT acknowledges and agrees that title to Petroleum delivered to the Terminal pursuant to this Agreement may be held by Persons other than PES (although not more than one Person at any one time). SPMT acknowledges and agrees that PES intends to enter into one or more intermediation agreements with third parties that will utilize the services provided, and have title to some or all of the Products handled, by SPMT hereunder. In consideration of PES’s execution of this Agreement with SPMT, SPMT hereby agrees that at the request of PES, it shall execute and deliver to any such intermediator, a Consent Agreement in the form of Exhibit D. Such Persons other than PES that hold title to Petroleum and such third parties who have entered into intermediation agreements with PES, together, shall be referred to herein as “Other Parties.”

18.4                        PES agrees and acknowledges that notwithstanding ownership of Products by Other Parties, SPMT shall enjoy all of the rights and remedies under this Agreement against PES as if PES were the owner of such Products. As provided in the Consent Agreement, SPMT will comply with lawful directions or instructions of Other Parties. PES acknowledges that in the event that SPMT receives conflicting directions or instructions from PES and Other Parties, PES acknowledges that SPMT will follow the directions or instructions of the Other Parties in accordance with the Consent Agreement.

 

19.                               Right of First Refusal.

 

In the event SPMT determines to sell the Terminal or any material portion thereof (the “ROFR Assets”), PES shall have a right of first refusal (“ROFR”) to purchase the ROFR Assets as follows:

 

19.1                        Upon execution of an agreement to sell any ROFR Assets, SPMT shall provide PES with a full and accurate copy of its executed agreement to sell the ROFR Assets (the “Third Party PSA”).

 

19.2                        SPMT shall provide PES and its designees with access to such information regarding the ROFR Assets as shall be reasonable and customary for PES to conduct due diligence on assets such as the ROFR Assets, including all such information provided in connection with the process associated with the Third Party PSA. PES shall have a period of not less than thirty (30) days to evaluate such information.

 

19.3                        PES shall have thirty (30) days from receipt of a full and accurate copy of the Third Party PSA (such period, the “ROFR Period”) to notify SPMT in writing of its intention to execute an agreement to purchase the ROFR Assets upon terms that are materially the same (except those terms which are clearly not applicable in the context of a sale to PES) as those in the Third Party PSA, including the price and payment terms contained therein.

 

19.4                        If PES does not notify SPMT of its intention to purchase the ROFR Assets within the ROFR Period, or notifies SPMT that it does not intend to exercise its ROFR with respect to such ROFR Assets, SPMT shall have the right, for a period of ninety (90) days following the expiration of the ROFR Period or PES’s notice to SPMT that it does not intend to exercise the ROFR, to close on the sale of such ROFR Assets in accordance with the terms of the Third Party PSA. If SPMT does not close on the sale of the ROFR Assets in accordance with the terms of the Third Party PSA within such period, PES’s rights pursuant to this Section 17 shall apply to any subsequent sale of any ROFR Assets.

 

19.5                        If PES notifies SPMT of its intention to purchase the ROFR Assets within the ROFR Period, SPMT shall provide PES with a purchase agreement executed by SPMT with the same terms as those included in the Third Party PSA (except for non-material deviations identified by PES in its notice of intent to exercise its ROFR and the deletion of any terms which are clearly not applicable in the context of a sale to PES). PES shall have ten (10) business days from receipt of such an agreement to countersign and deliver it to SPMT. Failure to execute such agreement within ten (10) business days shall be deemed notification by PES of its intent not to purchase the ROFR Assets.

20.                               Purchase Option.

 

20.1                        During the Term of this Agreement, PES shall have the right to purchase the Terminal (the “Terminal Purchase Option”) pursuant to the terms hereof. Such Terminal Purchase Option may be exercised by PES in connection with: (i) a sale by PES of all or substantially all of the assets or operations of the Philadelphia Refinery to a bona fide, unaffiliated third party; (ii) an underwritten public offering for cash as evidenced by the retention of an investment bank and the commencement of the preparation of a registration statement with an intention to file upon completion with the Securities and Exchange Commission; or (iii) a public debt financing of not less than $200 million occurring at any time on or after March 31, 2013, the proceeds of which financing are intended to restructure the capital structure of PES (and not for the purpose of capital improvements or expansion) (each, a “Trigger Event”). The terms of the Purchase Option shall be as follows:

 

(a)                                 At any time PES desires to exercise its Terminal Purchase Option, it shall provide written notice (a “Terminal Option Notice”) to SPMT stating that a Trigger Event is occurring or is reasonably contemplated in good faith by PES. Promptly upon receipt of such Terminal Option Notice, SPMT shall provide PES and its designees with access to such information regarding the Terminal as shall be reasonable and customary for PES to conduct due diligence on an asset such as the Terminal. PES shall have a period of not less than ninety (90) days to evaluate such information.

 

(b)                                 SPMT and PES shall, for a period of thirty (30) days following completion of PES’s due diligence, negotiate in good faith to reach agreement on the terms for a purchase of the Terminal by PES; provided, however, that the Parties agree that: (A) the purchase price shall be paid at closing in cash; (B) SPMT shall not be obligated to make any representations as to the condition of the Terminal; (C) PES shall be required to purchase the real property on which the Terminal is located or, if not feasible, as determined by SPMT in its reasonable judgment, SPMT shall otherwise grant a lease, easement(s) and/or other interests in real property necessary for PES to reasonably own, operate, maintain, repair and replace the Terminal; (D) SPMT shall convey all operating and maintenance records reasonably necessary for the operation of the Terminal; and (E) SPMT shall convey the Terminal free and clear of any charge, claim, community property interest, covenant, equitable interest, equitable servitude, lien, option, pledge security interest, right of first refusal, or other restriction of any kind, including any restriction on use, transfer, receipt of income, or exercise of any other attribute of ownership. For avoidance of doubt, SPMT shall not be obligated to provide an indemnity against any pre-existing environmental liabilities on, at or under the Terminal.

 

(c)                                  The purchase price to be paid for the Terminal shall be: (A) for any sale consummated pursuant to a Terminal Option Notice delivered on or before December 31, 2013, the product obtained by multiplying (X) the average EBITDA for the Belmont Rack for calendar years 2009, 2010 and 2011 by (Y) [**]; or (B) for any other sale, the fair market value of the Terminal, as determined

by three (3) investment banks (the “Appraisers”) which the Parties hereby agree shall be Barclays, Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley unless one or more of such designated investment banks is unable or unwilling to serve as an Appraiser, in which case the Parties shall mutually agree on one or more replacement investment bank(s). In determining the fair market value of the Terminal, the Appraisers shall consider all relevant factors, including comparable sales in the pipeline and terminaling industries and the terms and conditions of the sale of the Terminal. The fair market value of the Terminal shall be the average of the fair market values as determined by the three Appraisers.

 

(d)                                 To the extent the Parties are unable to reach agreement on any non-price term or condition of sale of the Terminal, such terms and conditions shall be determined by a single Appraiser (the “Designated Appraiser”) selected from among the Appraisers. The Designated Appraiser shall, except with respect to terms expressly provided herein, base the terms and conditions of sale on those that are reasonable and customary for the sale of an industrial asset such as the Terminal.

 

(e)                                  The fees of the Appraisers will be split equally between SPMT and PES. Any tank cleaning and freeing of storage tanks (or, alternatively, decommissioning) required as a result of the exercise of the Terminal Purchase Option shall be paid by [**].

 

(f)                                   Commencing as of the date the purchase price and terms and conditions of sale of the Terminal are determined, PES will have the right, but not the obligation, for a period of ninety (90) days (such period, the “Terminal Option Period”) to purchase the Terminal at such price and on such terms and conditions. PES shall notify SPMT, in writing delivered during the Terminal Option Period, of its intention to purchase the Terminal. Failure to provide such notice within the Terminal Option Period shall be deemed to constitute a decision by PES not to exercise its Terminal Purchase Option.

 

(g)                                  If PES notifies SPMT in writing during the Terminal Option Period of its intention to exercise its Terminal Purchase Option, both Parties shall be obligated to enter into an agreement incorporating the terms and conditions either agreed to by the Parties or determined by the Appraisers (as to price) or the Designated Appraiser (as to other terms). If PES fails to execute and deliver such an agreement within thirty (30) days of expiration of the Terminal Option Period, PES’s Terminal Purchase Option shall be deemed to have expired (with no effect on its ROFR).

 

(h)                                 If a Trigger Event is not consummated within nine (9) months of the closing of the purchase of the Terminal under this Section 20.1, then PES shall promptly pay to SPMT an additional amount equal to [**] of the purchase price paid by PES at the closing of the Terminal Purchase Option.

20.2                        In the event that PES purchases the Terminal pursuant to the Terminal Purchase Option and thereafter determines to sell or contribute to a joint venture the Terminal or any material portion thereof in a transaction that does not include a sale or conveyance of all or substantially all of the Philadelphia Refinery, SPMT shall have a right of first refusal to repurchase the Terminal. The terms of SPMT’s right of first refusal pursuant to this Section 20.2 shall be as follows:

 

(a)                                 SPMT’s right of first refusal shall be subject to the same terms and conditions as PES’s ROFR pursuant to Section 19, except that all references to SPMT therein shall be deemed to refer to PES and all references to PES therein shall be deemed to refer to SPMT.

 

(b)                                 The provisions of this Section 20.2 shall remain in effect following the date of this Agreement, regardless of the earlier termination of this Agreement. If, during such period, PES sells the Terminal pursuant to any transaction that does not permit SPMT to exercise its right of first refusal pursuant to this Section 20.2, PES shall cause the purchaser of the Terminal to assume PES’s obligations under this Section 20.2.

 

(c)                                  In the event PES enters into a transaction that permits SPMT to exercise its right of first refusal pursuant to this Section 20.2 and SPMT fails to exercise such right in accordance with the terms hereof, all of its rights pursuant to this Section 20.2 shall automatically terminate.

 

20.3                        In the event that PES purchases the Terminal pursuant to the Terminal Purchase Option and thereafter the operation of the Terminal is no longer conducted in connection with refining operations at the Philadelphia Refinery, SPMT shall have an option to repurchase the Terminal at its fair market value at the time of sale. The terms of SPMT’s repurchase option pursuant to this Section 20.3 shall be as follows:

 

(a)                                 SPMT’s purchase option shall be subject to the same terms and conditions as the Terminal Purchase Option pursuant to Section 20.1, except that: (i) all references to SPMT therein shall be deemed to refer to PES and all references to PES therein shall be deemed to refer to SPMT; (ii) the price described in Section 20.1(c)(A) shall not apply; and (iii) the non-price terms and conditions shall be identical to the terms and conditions that applied when PES exercised its Terminal Purchase Option other than reversing the references to the Parties.

 

(b)                                 The provisions of this Section 20.3 shall remain in effect for [**] years following the date of this Agreement, regardless of the earlier termination of this Agreement. If, during such period, PES sells the Terminal pursuant to any transaction that does not permit SPMT to exercise its right of first refusal pursuant to this Section 20.3, PES shall cause the purchaser of the Terminal to assume PES’s obligations under this Section 20.3.

PREFACE

 

This Port Manual (the “Manual”) provides information to Owners, Charters, Ships’ Masters, Barge Tankerman, Operators and Agents of vessels loading and/or unloading at the Fort Mifflin Terminal or Hog Island Wharf (the “Terminal”) in Tinicum, PA owned and operated by Sunoco Partners Marketing &Terminals LP (“SPMT”). It describes the conditions on use of the Terminal, services provided by SPMT at the Terminal, facilities located at the Terminal, and regulations of SPMT to which all users of the Terminal are subject. The material in this Manual supplements, but does not supersede, any information provided by, or any law or regulations enacted by, state, federal, or other governmental agencies.

 

It is the policy of SPMT that in the conduct of its activities it will strive to protect and promote the health and safety of its employees, customers, contractors, visitors, and others who may be affected by these activities, and to limit adverse affects on the physical environment in which its activities are carried out. It is essential that anyone coming through the facility to the docks follow the safety procedures as specified in Section 7 - B. Safety Regulations.

 

The information supplied in this Manual is furnished from available records which are believed to be accurate. SPMT, however, makes no representations or warranties regarding the accuracy of this information, and disclaims any liability or responsibility for damage or injury that may arise from use of this information. SPMT strongly recommends that any information contained herein involving vessel operations be independently confirmed.

 

Every vessel calling at the Terminal will be liable for all cleanup charges relating to spills that occur as a result of such vessel’s operations, the negligence of its owner, crew or operator, or equipment failure. All damage caused to the Terminal’s docks or other facilities due to the failure of a ship to control its speed or approach in accordance with this Port Manual will be the responsibility of the owner and operator of such ship, including damages resulting from an accident occurring in a federally maintained waterway. Such damages shall include, but shall not be limited to, fringe benefits and overhead. In addition, the terminal operator has no duty to scan or survey federally maintained waterways for the purpose of attempting to locate submerged objects that could potentially interfere with navigation. The terminal operator also has no duty to scan or survey for submerged objects any channel extending from the federally maintained waterway to the berth.

 

Most importantly, this Manual covers the SPMT regulations that all vessels must follow, along with applicable governmental requirements, to avoid accidents

and prevent oil spills. Nothing in this manual should be interpreted to relieve the Ship’s Master, Barge Tankerman, Barge Captain or the designated Person in Charge of their responsibilities to operate their vessel in a safe and seaworthy manner. Vessels are required to comply with all applicable laws and regulations including the Port and Tanker Safety Act of 1978, OPA-90 and Industry accepted standards. Every regulation in this manual applies to both ships and tugs and barges unless otherwise noted. The term “vessel” is used for both ships and tugs and barges. Vessels which do not comply with all the requirements of this manual may not be permitted to dock or may be required to immediate cease operations, disconnect and leave the berth.

F.       WEATHER

 

The local weather includes average temperatures ranging between 31o F. and 85o F. The U.S. Coast Guard radio stations make special weather broadcasts as the situation requires on FM channel 22A.

 

·                  Inclement Weather - SPMT reserves the right during inclement weather (i.e. lightning, high winds, etc.), to suspend discharge operations for any vessels until such weather condition clears and SPMT management, at its sole discretion, has determined that discharge operations may safely resume. See Appendix VII Severe Weather.

 

Port Closure — In the event the U.S. Coast Guard issues a port closure due to an impending Tropical Storm or Hurricane, all vessels are required to immediately cease discharge operations and vacate docks. In no event will a vessel be allowed to stay at SPMT docks during a Tropical Storm or Hurricane, including anchorage layberths. Prior to any significant weather event, all vessels will be asked to leave the facility. If U.S. Coast Guard utilizes Force Majeure on any SPMT berth, all vessels will be required to supply Indemnity Agreement to SPMT. SPMT will advise all customers when the U.S. Coast Guard has reopened the port and SPMT is ready to resume operations.

2.         TERMINAL SECURITY

 

Access to the Terminal is strictly limited to Sunoco Logistics personnel, government officers, and other visitors, contractors and customers with a valid reason for entry who have been pre-approved for Terminal access.

 

The Terminal is considered a MTSA facility and federal regulations generally require every person to have a valid TWIC Card in order to have unescorted access to the Terminal. Possession of a TWIC itself does not, on its own, guarantee access to the Terminal. An individual must also have a valid reason to access the Terminal as determined by Terminal Security personnel.

FORT MIFFLIN / HOG ISLAND WHARF MARINE

TERMINAL

 

NOMINATING PROCEDURE AND VESSEL SCHEDULING

The official language at the Terminal is English. Therefore, responsible personnel must be aboard at all times who can effectively communicate in English with Terminal personnel.

 

A.       NOMINATING PROCEDURE — SHIPS

The ship nomination procedure is a three step process:

 

1.              Schedule dock window

 

2.              Cargo quality and quantity

 

3.              Vessel Vetting

 

The minimum advance notice prior to the estimated time of arrival that must be submitted to the Terminal by SPMT’s customer shall constitute the ship’s “Nomination” and must be supplied according to the following window schedule shown in Figure 11 below unless otherwise provided by contractual agreement. The Terminal will have the sole discretion to determine the amount of nomination it can accept based on operational considerations including, but not limited to, dock availability, cargo crude type, vessel vetting, etc. Special provisions and arrangements with the dock may be needed during inclement weather events.

 

DOCK WINDOW

 

No more than three (3) business days after receipt of the nomination, SPMT shall either advise customer that the window of each vessel is accepted, or request that customer accept available dates or re-nominate with a different date range. No more than three (3) days after receipt of a request from SPMT for a different date range, customer shall nominate a vessel within that available date range or reach agreement with SPMT with respect to another date range.

 

Date range allowed for arrivals are: Five (5) days at the time of nomination. The vessel, or its agent, when fifteen (15) days from the expected arrival date, shall notify SPMT and designate a three (3) day date range within the original date range. Within seven (7) days of arrival, the vessel or its agent must narrow the range to a two (2) day window and provide daily updates. Failure to comply with the nomination process could result in loss of right to dock a vessel within the agreed upon date range.

CARGO QUALITY AND QUANTITY

 

Customer will provide the cargo name, properties and quantity for review and approval by SPMT. All cargo types require a cargo assay and/or current load port analysis to be approved by SPMT for discharge at the Terminal. The cargo assay must be current (not more than 3 years old) and representative of the cargo that is to be discharged. A cargo assay must include the following properties:

 

·                  Gravity - API degree

 

·                  Viscosity - SUS @ 100 F and SUS @ 60 F

 

·                  Read Vapor Pressure - psi

 

·                  Hydrogen Sulfide content - ppm (in liquid and vapor phase)

 

·                  Sulfur content - percent weight (required on all shipments)

 

·                  Pour Point - degree F

 

·                  Corrosion - Copper strip of 1B or better, NACE of B+ or better

 

SPMT reserves the right to request a cargo assay or load port analysis on previously approved cargo types to determine if cargo properties are within contractual limits. The following cargo types are subject to SPMT approval and may be require additional discharge conditions:

 

·                  High viscosity cargoes (as defined in customer terminal agreement) may require a cargo blend plans and/or line flush.

 

·                  High Pour Point cargoes may require injection of pour point depressant during discharge operations.

5.       DELIVERY PROVISIONS

 

A.     GENERAL

 

It is the intent of both customer and SPMT to minimize the total in-port time of the delivering vessel as well as to minimize the usage of the Terminal’s docking facilities by the delivering vessel.

 

The purpose of this section is to define acceptable norms for in-port vessel time and berth occupancy time in order to provide a means of compensation for the other party when either the vessel or SPMT exceeds these norms.

 

The Terminal’s docks are maintained so that vessels having a length overall and beam up to a maximum of the individual capabilities as described in Appendix I — Dock Restrictions are able to proceed thereto, lie thereat, and depart therefrom safely afloat, provided a channel fresh water depth of 40’ mean low tide. CUSTOMER RECOGNIZES AND AGREES THAT SPMT’S RESPONSIBILTY TO MAINTAIN SAFE BERTH APPLIES EXCLUSIVELY TO THE TERMINAL’S BERTHING AREA AND DOES NOT EXTEND TO CHANNELS OR ANCHORAGE AREAS MAINTAINED BY FEDERAL OR OTHER ENTITIES.

 

The customer shall instruct vessel or vessel’s respective agent to report to SPMT by email and telephone 7 days, 4 days, 3 days, 2 days, and again 1 day prior to arrival stating the expected date and hour of arrival at Big Stone. However, if the vessel loads less than seventy-two (72) hours prior to arrival at

 

** Certain information in this document has been omitted and filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Confidential treatment has been requested with respect to the omitted portions.

 

22



 

Big Stone, customer shall instruct vessel agent to contact the Marine Scheduler by telephone to determine dock availability as aforesaid promptly upon sailing for the Terminal.

 

Upon arrival at Big Stone, the Vessel’s Master or Respective Agent will advise SPMT of the Notice of Readiness to unload cargo by email. The vessel shall be deemed ready to unload within the meaning of this clause whether it arrives during or outside of usual business hours, berth or no berth.

 

B.       LAY TIME

 

Lay time shall be allowed to SPMT for the unloading of the cargo and is herein defined as the greater of (a) 36 hours or (b) 4 hours plus the time resulting from dividing the cargo by 10,000 bph, provided that the vessel maintains 100 psig at SPMT’s dock manifold. Lay time shall commence when the vessel is All Fast to the dock and shall end upon disconnection of the cargo arms or hoses.

 

Expectations with respect to Lay time calculations are as follows:

 

1)             Lay time shall not commence until the vessel is All Fast. Vessels shall be berthed on a first come first serve basis in accordance with section 4.

 

2)             Any delay in unloading due to the vessel’s condition or breakdown or inability of the vessel to unload cargo within allowed laytime shall not count as used lay time.

 

3)             Time used for measuring and sampling the vessel’s cargo shall not count as used lay time.

 

4)             If the vessel’s owner or charterer prohibits unloading or movement of the ship at any time after berthing, the time so lost shall not count as used laytime.

 

If the berthing of the customer vessel prior to the commencement of its date range would interfere with, or cause a delay to, another vessel which is running on schedule but which has not tendered Notice of Readiness, SPMT may defer the berthing of the customer vessel to permit said other vessel to berth. If the other vessel has not arrived at Big Stone and tendered Notice of Readiness before 0001 on the first day of the customer vessel’s date range, the customer’s vessel shall have prior right to berth.

 

If the customer vessel tenders Notice of Readiness prior to the commencement of its date range, lay time shall not commence until the vessel is All Fast.

 

If the vessel arrives at Big Stone and tenders Notice of Readiness after the expiration of its date range, SPMT shall use its reasonable efforts to berth it as promptly as possible provided, however, that SPMT may defer the berthing of

 

** Certain information in this document has been omitted and filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Confidential treatment has been requested with respect to the omitted portions.

 

23



 

the vessel if it would interfere with, or cause a delay, to another vessel which is within scheduled date range. If berthing of the late customer vessel is delayed by another customer vessel running on schedule, allowed lay time shall not commence until the late customer vessel is all fast alongside SPMT Dock. If berthing of the late customer vessel is delayed by something other than a customer vessel running on schedule, allowed lay time shall commence forty-eight (48) hours after tendering the Notice of Readiness or when the late customer vessel is all fast alongside SPMT Dock, whichever is earlier.

 

Flexible connections for unloading shall be furnished by SPMT. All vessels will be equipped with permanent discharge connections located midship.

 

C.       FREE TIME

 

Free time as used herein shall be defined as the normal minimum time allowed by SPMT to Customer’s owned or controlled vessels to perform Customer’s functions.

 

SPMT and Vessel’s Master shall consult prior to the beginning of discharge to determine the projected unloading. In situations where vessels are awaiting berth, SPMT shall be entitled to have vessels vacate the berth immediately after completion of free time subject to considerations of the safety of the vessel. Bunkering ex-pipe and ballasting shall take place concurrent with discharge at SPMT’s discretion, during allowed free time, or at an anchorage. Vacating the berth prior to the completion of allowed free time shall be negotiated by SPMT and the Vessel’s Master. Such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld by customer.

 

As allowed free time, vessels shall be allowed the lesser of (a) 36 hours or (b) 4 hours plus the time resulting from dividing the total cargo by an average unloading rate of 10,000 barrels per hour. In the event a vessel exceeds the allowed free time that results in the vessel missing the next available outbound window the customer will be assessed a lay berth (dock) fee, see Section 8 Current Fee Schedule. The lay berth (dock) fee period is defined as starting after expiration of free time until the vessel has completed discharge operations and the loading arms are disconnected.

 

Note: Additional dock time will only be authorized if it will not interfere with, or cause a delay to, another vessel and must be arranged through SPMT’s Marine Scheduler.

 

Used free time shall commence when the vessel is All Fast and shall end All Fast when the last line ashore is off.

 

If unloading is restricted or prevented by lack of ullage, SPMT shall not be obligated to maintain guaranteed minimum unloading rates and time at the

 

** Certain information in this document has been omitted and filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Confidential treatment has been requested with respect to the omitted portions.

 

24



 

dock shall count as free time regardless of the unloading rate while so restricted.

 

Exceptions to free time calculations are as follows:

 

Time lost by reason of fires, explosion or by strike, picketing, labor difficulties or disturbance or breakdown of machinery in or about the Terminal, severe weather delaying operations after the vessel is berthed, any action of a government authority or any other condition causing delay beyond the control of SPMT, shall not count as free time.

 

If SPMT restricts unloading at any time to a value less than the maximum pressure represented in Section below, free time as described above shall be extended based on the amount of time that the vessel is restricted by terminal.

 

If the vessels nominated by customer are unable to complete unloading within the free time thereby delaying another vessel or vessels through no fault of SPMT, SPMT shall have the right to terminate discharging and direct the vessel to vacate the berth provided, however, that an arrangement shall be reached with SPMT as to re-berthing of the vessel at the Terminal dock so as to complete unloading.

 

If the vessel is delayed at the berth beyond the allowed free time herein provided through no fault of SPMT and a waiting vessel or vessels are delayed as a result, customer’s obligation hereunder is limited to the demurrage costs SPMT pays to said vessel or vessels as a result of said vessel’s delay plus $500.00 per hour for each hour the berth is unavailable to the next waiting vessel which is on schedule. The maximum allowable discharge pressure from vessel shall not exceed 150 psig at SPMT’s Dock Manifold. The cargo shall be pumped out of the vessel at the expense, risk and peril of the vessel until passed to SPMT’s custody at the vessel’s permanent hose connections.

 

The vessel shall be free of wharf, dock, or quay dues at the Terminal. Contracted services required in connection with mooring and unmooring the vessel (tie up and untie), and if required, handling of spill boom, at the Terminal will be arranged for by customer’s respective agent, however, the charges for said contracted services will be for the account of customer. Customer shall be advised in advance of any unique or extraordinary contracted services.

 

D.       BARGE LAY TIME AND FREE TIME (MOORING AND UNMOORING)

 

Barge lay time and free time shall commence when the vessel is all fast. Laytime will end when hoses are disconnected and free time shall end with the last line ashore is off. Time allowed for lay time and free time shall be three

 

** Certain information in this document has been omitted and filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Confidential treatment has been requested with respect to the omitted portions.

 

25



 

(3) hours for hookup and gauging plus the number of hours resulting from dividing the total cargo by 5,000.

 

The barge’s minimum pumping rate shall be 6,000 barrels per hour against a maximum back pressure at SPMT’s Dock Manifold of 150 psig.

 

Barge dock mooring and unmooring shall include connection and disconnection of loading arm and/or hose.

E.    MAXIMUM TEMPERATURES & PRESSURE LIMITS

 

Maximum temperatures and pressure limits shall also be determined at the pre-cargo transfer conference. Maximum cargo temperature is 115 degrees Fahrenheit for cargo transfers.

 

F.    LINE PRESS PROCEDURE

 

If customer requests or agree to a line press (line displacement) to be conducted at the beginning of vessel discharge, see Appendix VII - Line Press Procedure.

 

G.    LOADING — STANDBY & NORMAL SHUTDOWN

 

See Appendix I - Dock Restrictions for Load rates and vapor restrictions.

 

Vessel may request slowdown at any time. For convenience, slowdowns should be in increments of 5,000, 10,000 bbl. per hour, etc or in pressure reduction increments to create a resultant slowdown. Approximately 5 minutes minimum should be allowed for any requested slowdown.

 

Initial standby for shutdown should be given at minimum of one hour. Secondary notification shall be given 15 minutes prior to the anticipated shutdown. At this time, the terminal operator will stand by near the shutdown button at the pump house. Pump shutdown will occur simultaneously with pushing of the shutdown button; however, oil can continue into the vessel until the shore valves are closed (approximately 3 minutes).

 

Vessel loading officer must keep the above in mind when making stops. Upon the completion of oil movement, hoses and/or loading arms are normally blown back to vessel with nitrogen; refer to Appendix VI - Blowback Procedure.

H.      EMERGENCY LOADING SHUTDOWN

 

The vessel PIC will be supplied with a radio set to the communications channel for the terminal. Radio communication will be made to the terminal for emergency shutdown. The facility PIC will depress the emergency shutdown to turn off the pumps and then manually close the shore valves. No prior notice is required for requesting an emergency shutdown.

 

I.        ANCHORS

 

Anchoring is NOT allowed at SPMT’s docks.

 

J.      GANGWAY

 

SPMT will provide gangways at each of the docks. Vessels will be required to install safety nets beneath gangways. The vessel is liable for any damage to the Terminal gangway due to any negligence of the vessel’s crew. SPMT shall not be liable for the safety of gangways. If the facility gangway does not fit appropriately the vessel courtesy gangway can be used.

 

K.    SHIP MOVEMENT

 

Vessel lines must be kept taut and secure at all times. The vessel Deck Watch must stay continually alert for vessel movement off spot. If the vessel moves more than two (2) feet away from the dock or in either direction along the dock, the vessel PIC must radio shore and all cargo transfer operations shall stop immediately and proper manifold valves shall be closed by vessel deck watch and terminal dockworker. Operations must not resume until the situation is corrected and the SPMT lead operator agrees that the situation has been corrected and it is safe to resume the transfer.

7.      SAFETY & ENVIRONMENT

 

A.        PRINCIPLES

 

When a vessel is berthed at a Terminal dock, SPMT expects the vessel’s Master to give top priority at all times to safety and efficiency, and to comply with all safety regulations mandated by various governmental agencies, as well as those included in this Manual.

 

All cargo-handling operations on the vessel are the responsibility of the vessel’s Master. To assist in ship-to-dock communications, a radio pack set (Walkie-Talkie) which will enable the Deck Watch or the person in charge of cargo transfer to communicate with the Terminal Dock Operator will be provided.

 

The radio battery packs are intrinsically safe for use in a hazardous location. If a vessel disregards any of the following safety regulations, SPMT personnel are authorized to stop cargo-transfer operations and require the vessel to leave its berth. The vessel’s Master has the right to shut down cargo transfer if dock operations are believed to be unsafe, provided the vessel’s Master gives adequate advance notice to the Terminal Dock Operator.

 

Please refer to Section 1, F. Weather for special provisions during weather events.

 

B.        SAFETY REGULATIONS

 

The provisions of Part 35, “Operations”, of the Rules and Regulations for Tank Vessels, Subchapter D (DG-123) published by the United States Coast Guard, are in force at the Terminal and must be observed.

 

The following regulations must be observed AT ALL TIMES while berthed at the Terminal’s docks:

 

Boiler Tube Blowing - Do not blow boiler tubes, and take every precaution to prevent sparks from escaping from the stack. If vessel safety is at stake, stop transfer operations before blowing the tubes.

 

Cargo Tank Tops - Before berthing, all tank tops, ullage plugs, and sighting ports must be closed and dogged down unless the Vessel’s Master certifies that the tanks are gas-free and all ballast in such tanks is clean.

 

Cargo and bunker tank tops must be kept closed. This also applies to permanent ballast tanks.

 

Ship Manifold Connections, Unused - Unused cargo and bunker connections will be blinded. All blind flanges must meet current U.S. Coast Guard requirements.

Engines - Keep the engines ready and the vessel trimmed so it can leave the docks under short notice. If the engines become inoperable, keep two tugboats of adequate size standing by until emergency repairs are made.

 

Fire Fighting - Fire fighting equipment must be available as per applicable U.S. Coast Guard regulations.

 

FIRE ALARM - In the event of fire on board vessel, however minor it my be, the Fire Alarm shall be given immediately, as follows: Rapid and continuous ringing of vessel’s bell, together with succession of long blasts on vessel’s whistle or siren.

 

Gas Venting - Ullage Holes - Keep all ullage or sighting ports completely closed (not secured) except for intermittent periods needed to ullage or sight vessel’s tanks.

 

Flame Arrestors - When open, all ullage ports must be protected by clean, well-fitted flame arrestors of wire-gauze screens; these must be of an approved type and have no defects.

 

Gas Freeing and Tank Cleaning - Do not gas-free or clean any tanks at berth without prior approval of the Terminal Superintendent.

 

Gangways - Tend the gangway and keep it safely secured. Vessel will provide safety net under gangway.

 

Mooring Lines - A minimum of 16 lines are required. Tend mooring lines to keep them taut and keep the vessel in position. See that tension winches are on manual brake. Since vessels may have a tendency to drift away from the dock, tend the mooring lines with special care when vessels pass. The Dock Operator has the authority to shut down cargo transfer if lines are not kept taut.

 

Portholes - Portholes facing the cargo transfer area must remain closed.

 

Repairs - While at berth, repair work, hot work, or maintenance work is not permitted.

 

Radio - At all times in port, keep your radio transmitter and aerials switched off and grounded. Portable radios (walkie-talkies) that are certified intrinsically safe may be used.

 

Sea Suction and Bilge Valves - All of the vessel’s sea, bilge, and overboard discharge valves connected to the cargo system must be tightly closed, latched and sealed in accordance with U.S. Coast Guard Regulation 33 CFR 155. The

seals are not to be broken while berthed except in the presence of the Dock Operator or in case of emergency.

 

Sewage Discharge - No facilities for sewage discharge are available at the Terminal.

 

Smoking - Smoking on board is allowed only in places which the Vessel’s Master has personally approved. There is to be NO SMOKING ON THE DOCK OR OPEN DECK OF THE VESSEL AT ANY TIME.

 

Stern Discharge Line - Keep the stern discharge line, if any, blanked at all times.

 

Suspension of Operations - Transfers, ballasting, crude washing, etc., may be suspended at the discretion of the Vessel’s Master or the Dock Operator as set forth in this Manual or during events where suspension would be prudent.

 

Communications Breakdown - In the event a breakdown of communications between the vessel and SPMT occurs during loading operations, and it should be necessary to shut off the flow of cargo to the vessel, an emergency signal consisting of a continuous sounding of the vessel’s whistle shall be given. This signal shall not be discontinued until the flow of cargo has been shut off.

 

Communication - Ship/Shore - Station a responsible English-speaking member of the crew on the loading deck by the transfer connections to maintain communication or remain in visual contact with the Dock Operator at all times. The Terminal Dock Operator must be notified when changes in rates are required, using radio pack sets or voice contact.

 

Doors - See that all external doors facing the cargo transfer deck remain closed.

 

Electrical Lights and Cables - Use only vapor-proof electric lights of an approved type on the open deck. Disconnect portable electrical equipment on the open deck unless certified for use in hazardous areas.

 

Galley Fires - No galley fires are permitted without approval from the Terminal Operations Shift Supervisor.

 

Hand Lanterns (Flashlights) - All hand lanterns used during cargo transfer must meet U.S. Coast Guard regulations.

 

Hoses - Inspect all cargo-loading hoses or arms to see that they are in good condition, fully bolted, and properly connected before transfer. The hose or arm-to-riser connections must have U.S. Coast Guard approved drip pans under

them. When cargo transfer has concluded, each hose/arm is to be drained and blank-flanged before being removed from the vessel.

 

Scuppers - Plug and cement the scuppers. Do not remove the plugs until vessel has departed, except when necessary to drain off rain water. In such cases, supervise the drainage closely and replace the plugs immediately. Install splash boards (on dock side) over scuppers. Cement is to be supplied by the vessel.

 

Special Stock Hazards

 

Static-Ignition Hazards - Some kinds of stock require special precautions because of the static they accumulate. Review the instructions by owners/charterer for handling such static stock and discuss during pre-cargo-transfer inspection.

 

Hydrogen-Sulfide Hazards - Some kinds of crude may contain dissolved hydrogen sulfide in concentrations which could be hazardous if inhaled. Review the instruction by owners/charterer about hydrogen sulfide hazards. If concentration of hydrogen sulfide exceeds 100 ppm in the vapor space of vessel’s tanks, notification must be made in writing to the Marine Scheduler and Operations Shift Supervisor at least 24 hours prior to vessel’s estimated time of arrival.

 

Aromatic-Stock Hazards - Special precautions are required for toxic cargos such as aromatics. Review the instructions by owners/charterer about toxic chemical hazards.

 

Valve Shutoff - Many new vessels have motor-operated valves, operated from a central location. Never operate these valves to close off against full oil-delivery rates.

 

Emergency Shutdown - Radio communication is the primary mode of emergency shutdown. The dock is equipped with emergency shutdown buttons to turn of the tank farm pumps. It will not close any shore valves. No prior notice is required to operate the emergency shutdown system. Under no circumstances should the vessel’s valves be closed against shore loading lines. The lines through which a vessel loads are clearly marked on the dock. If necessary the Terminal Dock Operator must be called upon to close these lines.

 

Ventilators - Keep ventilators suitably trimmed with regard to tank vents and prevailing wind conditions to prevent entry of flammable vapors.

 

Air Intakes and Air Conditioning Units - Close any central air-conditioning or fresh-air intakes which might take in gas. Close all intakes within a combined total of 100 ft. vertically and horizontally of cargo tank openings and venting

points. External window-type air-conditioning units that face the cargo transfer area must be kept disconnected.

 

Lifebuoys - Lifebuoys should be available in loading manifold area, and at points of entry, and exit from vessels, e.g., at Pilot ladder and gangway.

 

Attending Vessels - SPMT safety measures prohibit any vessel, motor boat, tug or barge from coming alongside vessels at berth during loading or discharging operations, except by special permission of the Operations Shift Supervisor.

 

Emergency Towing Cable - All vessels moored at the Terminal docks must have the eye of a steel hawser laid out to sea level and securely made fast, on board on the offshore box and quarter, to be of sufficient strength to enable tugs to take the vessel to a place of safety.

 

Anchors - Do not use anchors while moored to the dock.
