Part 146) (such Product, “FTZ Product”), and the economics of the sale to the Customer is adjusted because the FTZ Product is being sold duty free, a corresponding price adjustment shall be made to the Provisional Price and/or the Final Price payable by MSCG pursuant to Section 9.1. In any case, the Parties intend that the Customer will be responsible for completing the application process or taking any action required to exempt itself from the payment of the relevant customs duty.

 

  4.7.2 ***** agrees to reimburse ***** for any economic adjustment (an “FTZ Adjustment”) for the account of a Customer that purchases Product provided by ***** if such Customer would have purchased duty-free FTZ Product but for the ***** to obtain or maintain FTZ status for the Refinery at the time of *****’s sale to such Customer.

TPSI shall be the producer of the ethanol and gasoline blendstock mixture for purposes of any applicable ethanol blender’s tax credit.

 

  6.5.2 Transfer of RINs by MSCG. For each gallon of ethanol provided by MSCG to TPSI for rack blending as described in Section 6.4.1, MSCG shall transfer to PBF one Gallon-RIN meeting the criteria specified below.

  6.5.3 Remedies in Respect of Invalid RINs. If a Party determines that any Gallon-RINs provided hereunder are invalid pursuant to 40 C.F.R. § 80.1431, then that Party shall notify the other Party in writing within one Business Day of such determination. Within ten Business Days of such written notice, MSCG shall provide to PBF one Gallon-RIN, of the same type and vintage specified in Section 6.4.2, for every Gallon-RIN determined to be invalid.

 

  6.5.4 No Other RINs Contemplated. The Parties acknowledge and agree that MSCG shall be responsible only for providing to PBF the RINs specified herein, notwithstanding the renewable volume obligations imposed on PBF as a refiner of gasoline or diesel fuel pursuant to 40 C.F.R. Part 80, Subpart M.

  6.5.6 Biodiesel Credits and RINs.

 

  6.5.6.1 MSCG agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to establish customer demand for distillates that contain biodiesel (e.g., B5), as to which the mixture or the biodiesel component qualifies for the Biodiesel Tax Credit. For this purpose, “Biodiesel Tax Credit” means any income tax credit or excise tax credit or refund available for the production of biodiesel, renewable diesel or alternative fuels or the creation and sale of biodiesel, renewable diesel or alternative fuels mixtures provided under §§ 40A, 6426 or 6427 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, or any other applicable or successor provision.

 

  6.5.6.2 If MSCG provides biodiesel or similar renewable products for blending with petroleum diesel for sale to TPSI or directly to Customers, and a federal income or excise tax credit or refund exists with respect to the production and sale of the biodiesel mixture, then the Parties shall discuss and mutually agree upon how to handle such credit, including allocation of the value of the credit between them; provided, however, that this Section 6.5.6.2 shall not be interpreted to require the Parties to allocate such credit in any particular manner. The Parties also shall discuss whether any RINs associated with the biodiesel are to be transferred between the Parties.

The Monthly Specialty Premium Adjustment shall be included on the first Finished Products Invoice prepared after determination of such Monthly Specialty Premium Adjustment.

  9.5.1 On each Invoice Day, MSCG shall net the following amounts:

 

  (i) the Final Payment Amount payable by MSCG to PBF on the Final Payment Day occurring on such Invoice Date;

Upon payment to SMT of the Net Finished Products Amount or any portion thereof, MSCG’s obligation to pay PBF

MSCG shall notify PBF of the Net Payment Amount and the Party to whom the Net Payment Amount is payable shall prepare and deliver to the other Party an invoice in respect of such net amount by 11:00 a.m. EPT on each Invoice Day (the “Net Payment Amount Invoice” for such day). The Party owing the Net Payment Amount shall pay such amount to the other Party on or prior to 3:00 p.m. EPT on such day, subject to Section 9.9.

Determinations of any true-up amount set forth in Section 9.6 on an interim basis shall be included in the first Net Payment Amount Invoice delivered following such determination.

 

9.8 Payments. All payments to be made under this Agreement shall be made by wire transfer of same day funds in U.S. Dollars to such bank account at such bank as the payee shall designate in writing to the payor from time to time.

The Parties recognize and acknowledge that the exchange of certain information in a timely manner and subsequent payments based on the information are interrelated, and a reasonable delay in one aspect of the process will not relieve the obligation of a Party to reasonably comply with any response to the information or payment.

 

9.9 Disputed Invoices. If an invoiced Party, in good faith, disputes the accuracy of the amount invoiced, the invoiced Party shall pay such amount as it in good faith believes to be correct and provide written notice stating the reasons why the remaining disputed amount is incorrect, along with supporting documentation. In the event the Parties are unable to resolve such dispute, either Party may pursue any remedy available at law or in equity to enforce its rights hereunder. In the event that it is determined or agreed that the Party that is disputing an invoice must or will pay the disputed amount, then such Party shall pay interest from and including the original payment due date until, but excluding, the date the disputed amount is received by the owed Party, at the Base Interest Rate.

18. TERMINATION EVENTS, DEFAULT AND EARLY TERMINATION

 

18.1 Non-fault Based Early Termination Events.

 

  18.1.1 Change of Law.

Each Party shall make reasonable efforts to monitor proposed Changes of Law which may reasonably be expected to have an impact on such Party’s performance of its obligations under the Transaction Documents or its ability to hedge in a commercially reasonable manner trading positions related to (i) purchases and sales under this Agreement or in contemplation of fulfilling the objectives of this Agreement or (ii) the MSCG Inventory (“Hedging Activities”) and shall promptly notify the other Party upon becoming aware of any such proposed Change of Law. Such notice shall identify the proposed Change of Law and set out, in reasonable detail, the effects the notifying Party anticipates such Change of Law would have upon the Transaction Documents (or such Party’s performance thereunder) or its Hedging Activities if enacted. The Parties shall in good faith meet to discuss what, if any, measures can be taken by either Party (or both) to minimize and/or mitigate the effect of any such proposed Change of Law.

If a Change of Law results or would result in a Party (the “Adversely Affected Party”) incurring incremental damages, losses, costs, expenses, fees, fines, payments, Taxes, liabilities, penalties or other sanctions of a monetary nature (“Losses”) in excess of

 

36


$3,000,000 per annum solely as a result of such Party’s performance of its obligations under the Transaction Documents or as a result of its Hedging Activities, the Adversely Affected Party shall be entitled to request that the Parties meet for purposes of addressing such Change of Law by providing written notice (a “Change of Law Notice”) to the other Party (the “Non-Affected Party”), provided always that the Adversely Affected Party shall use all reasonable efforts to minimize the effects of such Change of Law and/or to mitigate the incremental Losses incurred by such Adversely Affected Party as a result of such Change of Law.

Within seven days of receipt of a Change of Law Notice, the Parties shall meet in good faith with a view to identifying any steps the (“Consequential Steps”) that would alleviate the effects of the relevant Change of Law on the Adversely Affected Party, which may include an agreement between the Parties to share the relevant incremental Losses incurred by the Adversely Affected Party or the amendment of any Transaction Document. In identifying the Consequential Steps, the Parties shall, as far as is reasonably practicable, do so in a manner that preserves the balance of the commercial agreement (including economic benefits, risk allocation, costs and liabilities) existing between the Parties under this Agreement as of the Effective Date.

In the event the Parties cannot reach agreement on the Consequential Steps and on the implementation of the same within 30 days of receipt by the Non-Affected Party of the Change of Law Notice, the Adversely Affected Party may terminate this Agreement, effective as of the earlier of (i) the effective date of the Change of Law and (ii) six months following receipt by the Non-Affected Party of the Change of Law Notice, in accordance with Section 11, and terminate all other Transaction Documents and all other agreements that may then be outstanding between the Parties that relate specifically to this Agreement, each in accordance with its terms.

 

  18.1.2 Change of Control. Upon the occurrence of a Change of Control with respect to PBF, MSCG may, in its sole discretion, accelerate this Agreement and designate a Termination Date, which shall be no earlier than the effective date of such Change of Control event, on which to terminate this Agreement in accordance with Section 11, and terminate all other Transaction Documents and all other agreements that may then be outstanding between the Parties that relate specifically to this Agreement, each in accordance with its terms.

37


  repeated or deemed to have been made or repeated under this Agreement; provided, however, that if such breach is curable, such breach is not cured to the reasonable satisfaction of the other Party (in its sole discretion) within ten Business Days from the date that such Party receives notice that corrective action is needed.

 

  18.2.4 Other than a default more specifically described in this Section 18.2, a Party fails to perform any obligation or breaches a covenant required under this Agreement, which, if capable of cure, is not cured to the reasonable satisfaction of the other Party (in its sole discretion) within five Business Days from the date that such Party receives written notice that corrective action is needed, provided that no grace period will apply to any failure by PBF to notify MSCG of a Change of Control in accordance with the last paragraph of Section 12.4.

Upon the occurrence of such event, PBF shall be deemed to be a Defaulting Party hereunder and MSCG shall be deemed to be the Performing Party.

 

38


  18.2.11 Due to an act or omission of PBF or any of its creditors, MSCG’s first priority Lien in any Products shall cease to exist or shall lose its priority, or any action is taken to impair or negatively impact MSCG’s first priority Lien in any Products, including the assertion by any creditor that MSCG would not be entitled to an exclusive, first priority Lien in any of such Products, and, if it is reasonably likely that such event is capable of cure within three Business Days, such event shall not have been cured by the third Business Day following PBF’s receipt of notice that corrective action is needed.

If PBF elects to terminate this Agreement as a result of a Termination Event for which MSCG is the Defaulting Party, (i) the Transitional Offtake Agreement shall become effective in accordance with its terms on the date this Agreement is terminated, unless PBF has notified MSCG that it does not require the Transitional Offtake Agreement to take effect, (ii) MSCG shall make commercially reasonable efforts to assign to PBF all of MSCG’s rights and obligations under its term Sale Contracts for sales to Customers at the Refinery truck rack, and (iii) during the term of the Transitional Offtake Agreement, MSCG shall, to the extent commercially reasonable, support, and shall take no actions intended to interfere with, PBF’s efforts to establish a customer base for the offtake of Products produced in the Refinery as MSCG transitions out of Refinery offtake. “Transitional Offtake Agreement” means for purposes hereof an agreement to be mutually agreed upon between the Parties after the Effective Date that incorporates the terms of Schedule 14. For the avoidance of doubt, if the Transitional Offtake Agreement becomes effective, to the extent any terms of the Transitional Offtake Agreement conflict with the termination procedures hereunder, the Transitional Offtake Agreement shall control.

 

18.8 Export of Defaults to and Liquidation of Specified Agreements. The occurrence of an Early Termination Date shall constitute a material breach and an event of default, howsoever described, under all Specified Agreements, and the Performing Party may, by giving a notice to the Non-Performing Party, designate an early termination date (which shall be no earlier than the Early Termination Date) for all Specified Agreements and, upon such designation, terminate, liquidate, accelerate and otherwise close out all Specified Agreements that lawfully may be closed out and terminated or, to the extent that in the reasonable opinion of the Performing Party certain of such Specified Agreements may not be liquidated and terminated under Applicable Law on such Early Termination Date, as soon thereafter as is reasonably practicable in which case the actual termination date for such Specified Agreements will be the Early Termination Date. In such event, the Performing Party shall calculate the payments due upon early termination of such Specified Agreements in accordance with the terms set forth in such Specified Agreements, which shall be aggregated or netted to a single liquidated amount (the “Specified Agreement Close-Out Amount”) and paid pursuant to the terms of such agreements, or if no payment date is specified, on the payment date specified in Section 18.10. In determining the Specified Agreement Close-Out Amount, the Performing Party may foreclose upon and apply any collateral provided by or on behalf of the Non-Performing Party under this Agreement or any Specified Agreement.

 

42


18.9 Determination of the Termination Amount in the Event of Early Termination. The amount payable in respect of early termination shall comprise (without duplication) all of the following amounts, which shall be aggregated or netted to a single liquidated amount (the “Termination Amount”) owing from one Party to the other Party:

 

  18.9.1 if MSCG requires PBF to purchase the MSCG inventory pursuant to Section 18.6, the purchase price of the MSCG Inventory located at the Refinery determined in accordance with Section 9.1 as of the date of termination;

 

  18.9.2 the Specified Agreement Close-Out Amount as determined pursuant to Section 18.8;

 

  18.9.3 the amount of any performance assurance, credit support or collateral provided by or on behalf of PBF under this Agreement or any Specified Agreement held by MSCG at the Early Termination Date, which shall be applied as a credit to PBF;

 

  18.9.4 Breakage Costs, including, for avoidance of doubt, the losses and costs (or gains) incurred (or realized) by the Performing Party, if MSCG, in terminating, transferring, or otherwise modifying any outstanding contracts with Customers;

 

  18.9.5 all Unpaid Amounts, including any purchase price for Product that has not yet been paid and any portion of the Provisional Payment Amount that has not been returned to MSCG;

 

  18.9.6 any other amounts or adjustments that are owed one Party by the other Party under this Agreement or any other Transaction Document; and

 

  18.9.7 the applicable Early Termination Fee, if any, as provided in Section 18.5.

In the event of any termination, notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, MSCG shall at all times be bound to make payment under the Payment Direction Agreement in accordance with its terms until performance under the Payment Direction Agreement is suspended pursuant to Section 18.4.6 and the terms thereof or the Payment Direction Agreement is terminated pursuant to the terms thereof.

 

18.10 Payment of Termination Amount. The Performing Party shall notify the Non-Performing Party of the Termination Amount due from or due such Party. If the Non-Performing Party owes the Termination Amount to the Performing Party, the Non-Performing Party shall pay the Termination Amount on the second Business Day after it receives the statement. If the Performing Party owes the Termination Amount to the Non-Performing Party, the Performing Party shall pay the Termination Amount once it has reasonably determined all amounts owed by the Non-Performing Party to it under all Specified Agreements and its rights of close-out and setoff under Section 18.11.

 

18.11

Setoff Rights of Performing Party. If the Performing Party elects to designate an Early Termination Date under Section 18.4.3, the Performing Party shall be entitled, at its option and in its discretion (and without prior notice to the Non-Performing Party), to setoff against the Termination Amount (whether such Termination Amount is payable to the Performing Party or to the Non-Performing Party) any other amounts payable under any agreements between the Non-Performing Party and the Performing Party (whether or not matured or contingent and

 

43


  irrespective of the currency, place of payment or place of booking of the obligation). To the extent that the Termination Amount is so set off, the Termination Amount and other amounts will be discharged promptly and in all respects. The Performing Party will give notice to the other Party of any set-off effected under this Section 18.11.

Notwithstanding the above, MSCG shall at all times be bound to make payment under the Payment Direction Agreement in accordance with its terms until performance under such Payment Direction Agreement is suspended pursuant to Section 18.4.6.

 

18.12 Non-Exclusive Remedies. The Performing Party’s rights under this Section 18 are in addition to, and not in limitation or exclusion of, any other rights of setoff, recoupment, combination of accounts, Lien or other right which it may have, whether by agreement, operation of law or otherwise. No delay or failure on the part of a Performing Party to exercise any right or remedy shall constitute an abandonment of such right or remedy and the Performing Party shall be entitled to exercise such right or remedy at any time after a Termination Event has occurred and is continuing.

 

18.13 Indemnification. The Non-Performing Party shall reimburse the Performing Party for its costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, incurred in connection with the enforcement of, suing for or collecting any amounts payable by the Non-Performing Party. The Non-Performing Party shall indemnify and hold harmless the Performing Party for any damages, losses and expenses incurred by the Performing Party as a result of any Termination Event.

 

19. INDEMNIFICATION AND CLAIMS

 

19.1 To the fullest extent permitted by Applicable Law and except as specified otherwise elsewhere in this Agreement, PBF shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless MSCG, its Affiliates, and their Representatives, agents and contractors for and against any Liabilities which is caused by PBF or its Representatives, agents or contractors, in performing its obligations under this Agreement, except to the extent that such injury, disease, death, or damage to or loss of property was caused by the negligence or willful misconduct on the part of MSCG, its Representatives, agents or contractors.

 

19.2 To the fullest extent permitted by Applicable Law and except as specified otherwise elsewhere in this Agreement, MSCG shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless PBF, its Affiliates, and their Representatives, agents and contractors for and against any Liabilities caused by MSCG or its Representatives, agents or contractors in performing its obligations under this Agreement, except to the extent that such injury, disease, death, or damage to or loss of property was caused by the negligence or willful misconduct on the part of PBF, its Representatives, agents or contractors.

 

19.3 In addition to the indemnification obligations set forth in Sections 19.1 and 19.2 and elsewhere in this Agreement, each Party (referred to as the “Indemnifying Party”) shall indemnify and hold the other Party (the “Indemnified Party”), its Affiliates, and their Representatives, agents and contractors, harmless from and against any and all Liabilities directly or indirectly arising from (i) the Indemnifying Party’s breach of any of its obligations under or covenants made in this Agreement; (ii) the Indemnifying Party’s negligence or willful misconduct; (iii) the Indemnifying Party’s failure to comply with Applicable Law with respect to the sale, transportation, storage, handling or disposal of Product or violation of any Environmental Law caused by the Indemnifying Party or its Representatives, agents or contractors, unless such violation liability results from the Indemnified Party’s negligence or willful misconduct; or (iv) if any of the Indemnifying Party’s representations, covenants or warranties made herein proves to be materially incorrect or misleading when made.

 

44


19.4 The Parties’ obligations to defend, indemnify, and hold each other harmless under the terms of this Agreement shall not vest any rights in any third party (whether a Governmental Authority or private entity), nor shall they be considered an admission of liability or responsibility for any purposes other than those enumerated in this Agreement.

 

19.5 Each Party agrees to notify the other Party as soon as practicable after receiving notice of any suit brought against it within the indemnities of this Agreement, shall furnish to the other the complete details within its knowledge and shall render all reasonable assistance requested by the other in the defense. Each Party shall have the right but not the duty to participate, at its own expense, with counsel of its own selection, in the defense and settlement thereof without relieving the other of any obligations hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, an Indemnifying Party shall not be entitled to assume responsibility for and control of any judicial or administrative proceeding if such proceeding involves a Termination Event by the Indemnifying Party under this Agreement which shall have occurred and be continuing.

 

20. LIMITATION ON DAMAGES

 

20.1 Except for the Parties’ indemnification obligations set forth in this Agreement, or unless otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, the Parties’ liability for damages is limited to direct, actual damages only and neither Party shall be liable for specific performance, lost profits or other business interruption damages, or special, consequential, incidental, punitive, exemplary or indirect damages, in tort, contract or otherwise, of any kind, arising out of or in any way connected with the performance, the suspension of performance, the failure to perform, or the termination of this Agreement. Each Party acknowledges the duty to mitigate damages hereunder.

 

21. INFORMATION AND INSPECTION RIGHTS

 

21.1 Audit Rights. Upon request by either Party, the other Party shall provide the requesting Party with copies of all relevant documents and records in its possession that reasonably relate to compliance with EPA requirements described in Section 4.8 or to the calculation of any formula, invoice, statement or the amount of any payment under this Agreement, except for any documents or pricing information concerning any of MSCG’s proprietary activities that are in the custody or control of MSCG or any other person (whether or not related to this Agreement) or MSCG’s hedging activity or trading positions with any person that may have been utilized in connection with any Sale Contracts.

 

21.2

Right to Physical Inspection. From time to time during the Term, MSCG shall have the right, at its own cost and expense, to have an Independent Inspector conduct surveys and inspections of any of the Tanks or facilities at the Refinery that are used to handle, store or transfer the Product from the Refinery process units to the Tanks, and to observe any Product transfer, handling, metering or related activities; provided that such surveys and inspections shall be made during normal working hours and upon reasonable notice and shall not disrupt the Refinery’s normal operations. Such surveys and inspections shall be in compliance with the Refinery’s prevailing rules and procedures, and the Party undertaking such survey or inspection shall be responsible for its own personnel and representatives. If any dispute between the Parties has not been resolved as of the Early Termination Date or Termination Date, as applicable, MSCG’s inspection rights under this Section 21.2 shall continue for a period that is the later of (i) the date on which all

 

45


  amounts due by one Party to the other Party as a result of termination or expiration of this Agreement are paid as provided in Section 18 and (ii) removal of or transfer of title to the Product owned by MSCG or its consignees or assignees from the Refinery.

 

22. GOVERNANCE COMMITTEE

 

22.1 Approved Representatives. The Parties shall each appoint by written notice to the other Party two senior individuals representing them (the “Approved Representatives”) to be members of a governance committee (the “Governance Committee”) to administer, resolve and determine matters relating to the operation and administration of the Transaction Documents and to keep the Parties appraised of all material aspects of and developments relating to the Transaction Documents. Each Approved Representative must be currently employed by the appointing Party at all times. Either Party may replace one or both of the individuals serving as its Approved Representatives in its discretion from time to time upon written notice to the other Party.

 

22.2 Meetings of the Governance Committee. The quorum for decision making at a meeting of the Governance Committee shall be not less than one Approved Representative appointed by each Party. Meetings of the Governance Committee shall be held quarterly or as required to resolve any matter or dispute or if so requested by either of the Parties.

 

22.3 Decisions of the Governance Committee. If agreement is reached in writing, the Governance Committee shall have such written agreement reflected in a mutually acceptable amendment to this Agreement; provided that revisions to the schedules to this Agreement may be made upon the mutual agreement of the Authorized Representatives in writing (including by an exchange of e-mails or electronic messages) without a formal amendment. The Parties agree that the Governance Committee shall have due regard to the Parties’ goals and objectives that were the basis of entering into this Agreement when making any relevant decisions or making any agreement in respect of any matter referred to it under the Transaction Documents.

 

22.4 Third Party Referee. Without prejudice to any provision of this Agreement that sets out a specific time frame for consideration of a matter by the Governance Committee or for the Parties to have specific rights following the Governance Committee failing to agree on matters referred to it, in the event the Governance Committee cannot reach agreement within 30 Business Days on any matter before it, after consulting in good faith and using all reasonable efforts to reach agreement, such matter or dispute shall be referred to an independent third party for resolution. Such independent third party shall have an expertise in the subject matter and shall be mutually agreed upon by the Parties. Such firm’s determination shall be in the form of a written opinion, as is appropriate under the circumstances, to be delivered within 30 days of submission of the dispute to the firm or as soon thereafter as the firm can reasonably render its decision, and shall confirm that it was rendered in accordance with this Section 22, including that it was arrived at with due regard to the Contract Objectives. The fees and expenses of such firm for its services in resolving such dispute shall be borne equally by the Parties. With respect to any matters before the Governance Committee, the Parties agree that no Party shall take action under Section 23 until the procedures of this Section 22 have been completed provided, however, that any applicable statute of limitations shall be tolled during such period and either party may seek immediate injunctive relief if so required.

23.3 Availability of Remedies. The Parties acknowledge and agree that damages may not be an adequate remedy for a breach of the provisions of this Agreement.

26. NATURE OF THE TRANSACTION AND RELATIONSHIP OF THE PARTIES

 

26.1 Neither this Agreement nor any other Transaction Document or transaction under any of them, nor the performance by the Parties of their respective obligations under this Agreement, any other Transaction Document or any transaction, shall constitute or create a joint venture, partnership or legal entity of any kind between the Parties. It is understood that each Party has complete charge of its employees and agents in the performance of its duties hereunder, and nothing herein shall be construed to make a Party, or any employee or agent of such Party, an agent or employee of another Party. No Party shall have any authority (unless expressly conferred in writing under this Agreement or otherwise and not revoked) to bind another Party as its agent or otherwise.

 

27. CONFIDENTIALITY

 

27.1 This Agreement and all documents related to the foregoing and any information pertaining thereto made available by a Party or its Representatives to the other Party or its Representatives, are confidential (collectively, “Confidential Information”). Each Party shall at a minimum use the same efforts and standard of care with respect to Confidential Information provided by the other Party that it uses to preserve its own confidential information, and in no event less than reasonable efforts. Confidential Information shall not be discussed with or disclosed to any third party by any Party except for such information (i) as may become generally available to the public through no breach of this Section 27.1 or any other agreement between the Parties, (ii) as may be required or appropriate in response to any summons, subpoena or otherwise in connection with any litigation or to comply with any Applicable Law or accounting disclosure rule or standard or request by any supervisory or regulatory authority, (iii) as may be obtained from a non-confidential source that disclosed such information in a manner that did not violate its obligations to the other Party or its credit support provider in making such disclosure, or (iv) as may be furnished to the disclosing Party’s Affiliates or to its Representatives, all of whom are required to keep the information that is disclosed in confidence. This provision shall remain in effect for two years following the termination of this Agreement.

 

27.2 In the case of disclosure covered by clause (ii) of Section 27.1, and if the disclosing Party’s counsel advises that it is permissible to do so, the disclosing Party shall notify the other Party in writing of any proceeding of which it is aware which may result in disclosure, and use reasonable efforts to prevent or limit such disclosure. The Parties may exercise all remedies available at law or in equity to enforce or seek relief in connection with the confidentiality obligations contained in this Agreement.

 

28. MISCELLANEOUS

 

28.1 Joint Parties. (i) The obligations of PBFH and PRC under this Agreement shall be the joint and several obligations of each such entity; (ii) any reference to “Party”, as applied to PBFH and PRC, shall be construed as a joint and several reference to each such entity.

 

28.2 Survival. Termination or expiration of this Agreement shall not affect any rights or obligations that may have accrued prior to termination, including any in respect of antecedent breaches and, for the avoidance of doubt but subject to the terms of this Agreement, any rights or obligations under this Agreement or any of the other Transaction Documents in respect of transactions entered into up to and including the date of termination or expiration of this Agreement. The obligations of each Party that expressly survive termination, are required to take effect on or give effect to termination or the consequences of termination or which by their very nature must survive termination, shall continue in full force and effect notwithstanding termination of this Agreement.

 

49


28.3 Entire Agreement; Amendments. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement of the Parties regarding the matters contemplated herein or related thereto, and no representations or warranties shall be implied or provisions added hereto in the absence of a written agreement to such effect between the Parties after the Effective Date; provided, however, that nothing in this Agreement shall limit, impair or contravene the Parties’ or their Affiliates’ rights as set forth in any Specified Agreement (whether entered into prior to, on or after the Effective Date) regarding the collection and determination of margin and collateral, the exporting or importing of events of default, termination events, or the netting and setting off of amounts due. This Agreement may not be altered, amended, modified or otherwise changed in any respect except in writing duly executed by an authorized representative of each Party and no representations or warranties shall be implied or terms added in the absence of a writing signed by both Parties. No promise, representation or inducement has been made by either Party that is not embodied in this Agreement, and neither Party shall be bound by or liable for any alleged representation, promise or inducement not so set forth.

 

28.4 Severability. If at any time any court of competent jurisdiction declares any provision of this Agreement is or becomes illegal, invalid or unenforceable in any respect under any Applicable Law of any jurisdiction, neither the legality, validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions nor the legality, validity or enforceability of such provision under the Applicable Law of any other jurisdiction will, in any way, be affected or impaired. The Parties will negotiate in good faith with a view to reform this Agreement in order to give effect to the original intention of the Parties and produce as nearly as is practicable in all the circumstances the appropriate balance of the commercial interests of the Parties. The failure to agree upon such provisions for any reason or no reason shall not be considered a breach of this Agreement.

 

28.5 Waiver and Cumulative Remedies. No failure to exercise, nor any delay in exercising, any right, power or remedy under this Agreement or provided by Applicable Law shall operate as a waiver, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right or remedy prevent any further or other exercise or the exercise of any other right or remedy. The rights and remedies provided in this Agreement are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies (provided by Applicable Law or otherwise). Any waiver of any breach of this Agreement shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any subsequent breach.

 

28.6 Time Is of the Essence. Time shall be of the essence for this Agreement with respect to all aspects of each Party’s performance of its obligations under this Agreement.

 

28.7 No Third-Party Beneficiaries. There are no third party beneficiaries to this Agreement and the provisions of this Agreement shall not impart any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim enforceable by any person, firm or organization other than the Parties and their successors in interest and permitted assigns.

 

28.8 Announcements. At no time during the Term of this Agreement, and for a period of two years following its expiration or termination, shall any Party issue any press announcement or public statement regarding this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other Party, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned, except as may be required by Applicable Law or to the extent public disclosure is required under the circumstances described in any relevant confidentiality agreement entered into between the Parties. The issuing Party will:

 

  28.8.1 use all reasonable efforts to notify the other Party of the content of such announcement at least three Business Days prior to such issue (unless otherwise required by Applicable Law or to the extent public disclosure is required under the circumstances described in any relevant confidentiality agreement entered into by the Parties); and

 

50


  28.8.2 take the other Party’s comments on the proposed announcement into account as is reasonable in the circumstances, provided such comments are received within two Business Days of the notification.

 

28.9 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed by the Parties in separate counterparts and all such counterparts shall together constitute one and the same instrument. In the event that any signature is delivered by facsimile transmission, such signature shall create a valid and binding obligation of the Party executing (or on whose behalf the signature is executed) the same with the same force and effect as if such facsimile signature page were an original thereof.

1. SALE AND PURCHASE OF SLURRY INVENTORY

 

1.1 Generally

At a time (the “Inventory Transfer Time”) and on a date (the “Inventory Transfer Date”), both to be mutually agreed between the Parties, MSCG agrees to sell and PBF agrees to purchase all of the Seller’s right, title and undivided interest in Slurry owned by MSCG and located at the Refinery as of such time (the “Slurry Inventory”) in accordance with the terms of this Schedule 2.

1.2 Provisional Slurry Payment Amount

Two Business Days prior to the Inventory Transfer Date, PBF shall deliver to MSCG an estimate (the “Inventory Estimate”) of the projected volume of Slurry Inventory on the Inventory Transfer Date at the Inventory Transfer Time based on static tank measurements and otherwise in accordance with the provisions of the Storage Agreement and projected inflows and outflows. One Business Day prior the Inventory Transfer Date, MSCG shall deliver to PBF an invoice for a provisional payment amount (the “Provisional Slurry Payment Amount”). MSCG shall calculate the Provisional Slurry Payment Amount based on the *****. PBF shall make payment to MSCG of the Provisional Slurry Payment Amount prior to the Inventory Transfer Time on the Inventory Transfer Date.

 

1.3 Measurement and Sampling by Independent Inspector

On the Inventory Transfer Date, an Independent Inspector shall measure the volume of Slurry Inventory as of the Inventory Transfer Time by taking static tank measurements and otherwise in accordance with the provisions of the Storage Agreement. Unless otherwise agreed by the Parties, all valves in and out of the Tank will be closed and sealed at the time of gauging.

Following the Independent Inspector’s measurement of the Slurry Inventory volume, the Independent Inspector shall prepare and deliver to the Parties a report setting forth the volume of Slurry Inventory in the Tanks and qualitative test results for the Slurry Inventory (the “Inventory Report”). Each Party may have a representative present for all measurement and sampling performed in connection with the sale of Slurry. Inspection and testing costs for the Independent Inspector, including travel, laboratory and incidental costs (such as bottles, bombs, seals etc.) shall be shared on a ***** basis between MSCG and PBF (i.e., *****% by MSCG and *****% by PBF).


1.4 Slurry Payment Adjustment

After receipt of the Inventory Report, MSCG shall notify PBF, on the fifth (5th) Business Day prior the thirtieth (30th) day following the Inventory Transfer Date, of any adjustment (the “Slurry Payment Adjustment”) payable by either MSCG or PBF in respect of the purchase of the Slurry Inventory based on the final volumes reflected in the Inventory Report and the Slurry Price as determined in accordance with Schedule 11. The Party that is owed the Slurry Payment Adjustment shall deliver an invoice to the Party owing the Slurry Payment Adjustment. The Party owing the Slurry Payment Adjustment shall pay such amount to the other Party on or prior to the 30th day following the Inventory Transfer Date (the “Slurry Payment Date”), provided that the Party owing the Slurry Payment Adjustment received the invoice for the total amount payable at least five (5) Business Days prior to the Slurry Payment Date, otherwise, the Slurry Payment Date shall be the fifth (5th) Business Day following receipt of such invoice by the Party owing the Slurry Payment Adjustment.

SCHEDULE 9—LIGHT FINISHED PRODUCTS AND SPECIALTY GRADE PRICING

INTENT AND STRUCTURE OF PRICING ARRANGEMENT

The intent of this Light Finished Products Pricing schedule is to provide a mechanism under which PBF will receive the proceeds that would be associated with “market priced” sales of Light Finished Product. “Market priced” means a price that reflects the value that would be obtained by two parties in negotiating an arms length transaction in the open market.

The Light Finished Product that MSCG purchases from PBF on a delivered-into-tank basis will subsequently be sold by MSCG under five modes of delivery: the NuStar Terminal truck rack (“Rack”), the Refinery dock (“Barge”), the pipelines that ship product from the Refinery to Linden, NJ, (“NYH Pipe”), to Macungie, PA (“PA Pipe”) and to the Philadelphia Airport (“Jet Pipe”). The ***** modes of delivery will generally result in ***** than the ***** mode of delivery. This schedule is structured such that PBF will receive, on a daily basis, an initial minimum price that reflects the ***** value (the “Base Barge Price”). PBF will subsequently receive additional proceeds (the “Location Premium”) that reflect the ***** as a result of *****.

The Base Barge Price will be set at a level that reflects a market price (“*****”) for delivery to *****, less ***** to the transaction between PBF and MSCG. The costs to execute such conversion between these two transaction bases include ***** and a time-value-of-money (“TVM”) adjustment at ***** basis points (“bps”). The TVM adjustment captures the economic impact of ***** compared to when a buyer would pay under the reference ***** barge transaction.

The Location Premium will be calculated based on the net revenue improvement between the four alternate modes of delivery ***** compared to the Base Barge Price. This net revenue improvement adjusts the higher ***** price by the ***** associated with selling product via ***** relative to Barge. This includes ***** and TVM costs. In essence, the Location Premium compares the ***** of a ***** sale to the ***** in each netback. This incremental netback value is ***** to arrive at the total Location Premium.

***** will receive a Sales Incentive from *****, that is a *****.

MSCG will also pay *****.

 

3


SECTION I: BASE BARGE PRICE

The Base Barge Price shall be calculated as follows:

Base Barge Price = *****—*****, where:

 

A. ***** = *****.

 

B. ***** = *****:

 

  1. *****.

 

  2. ***** = *****.

SECTION II: PROVISIONAL PRICE

The Provisional Price payable by MSCG pursuant to Section 9.1 with respect to a Light Finished Product shall equal the ***** effective for the Delivery Date, or if the Delivery Date is not a Business Day or is the same as the Provisional Payment Day, effective for the Business Day prior to the Delivery Date.

The Provisional Price payable by MSCG pursuant to Section 9.1 with respect to a Specialty Grade shall equal the ***** to produce the Specialty Grade Product instead of the “Next Best Alternative Product” as mutually agreed between the Parties.

SECTION III: FINAL PRICE

The Final Price payable by MSCG pursuant to Section 9.1 with respect to a Product shall equal the ***** Business Day on which PBF delivers to MSCG the Daily Report of Delivered Volumes for such Product delivery pursuant to Section 5.9.

SECTION IV: LOCATION PREMIUM

In addition to the Final Price, ***** on Light Finished Products only, which is a lump sum amount payable pursuant to Section 9.2 and calculated in the following manner:

Location Premium = *****:

 

A. Rack Premium = *****:

 

  1. Rack Volume = with respect to the relevant delivery day, the volume ***** at the rack (including sales to *****).

 

4


  2. Rack vs. Barge Price Differential = with respect to the relevant delivery day, the price at which *****, less ***** expressed as a differential to a ***** calculated using the ***** prices effective on the day that the rack sale transaction is priced (which is based on the market closing price the ***** prior to the ***** at the rack).

 

  (a) Rack Costs include, with respect to the relevant delivery day, any rack fees paid to PBF or NuStar, a $*****/gallon rack sales administration fee paid ***** to bridge the period of time between ***** cash receipt on its rack sales and the payment timing of the standard ***** transaction.

 

B. NYH Pipe Premium = *****, where:

 

  1. NYH Pipe Volume = with respect to the relevant delivery day, the volume *****.

 

  2. NYH Pipe vs. Barge Price Differential = with respect to the relevant delivery day, the price at which *****, less ***** (if any) expressed as a differential to a Base Barge Price calculated using the ***** prices effective at the time the pipe sale transaction is executed.

 

  (a) NYH Pipe Costs = with respect to the relevant delivery day, the Tariff to ship on ***** and a ***** to bridge the period of time between *****’s cash receipt on its NYH Pipe sales and the payment timing of the standard ***** transaction

 

C. PA Pipe Premium = *****, where:

 

  1. PA Pipe Volume = with respect to the relevant delivery day, the volume *****.

 

  2. PA Pipe vs. Barge Price Differential = with respect to the relevant delivery day, the price at which ***** expressed as a differential to a ***** calculated using the ***** prices effective at the time the pipe sale transaction is executed.

 

  (a) PA Pipe Costs = with respect to the relevant delivery day, the Tariff to ship on ***** and a ***** to bridge the period of time between *****’s cash receipt on its PA Pipe sales and the payment timing of the standard ***** transaction

 

D. Jet Pipe Premium = *****, where:

 

  1. Jet Pipe Volume = with respect to the relevant delivery day, the volume *****.

 

  2. Jet Pipe vs. Barge Price Differential = with respect to the relevant delivery day, the price at which *****, less ***** expressed as a differential to a ***** calculated using the ***** prices effective at the time the pipe sale transaction is executed.

 

5


  (a) Jet Pipe Costs = with respect to the relevant delivery day, the Tariff to ship on ***** and a ***** to bridge the period of time between *****’s cash receipt on its Jet Pipe sales and the payment timing of the standard ***** transaction

SECTION V: SALES INCENTIVE

PBF will pay MSCG a Sales Incentive, which is a lump sum amount payable pursuant to Section 9.3 and calculated in the following manner:

Sales Incentive = (A) x *****, where:

 

A. A = ***** as follows:

 

  1. *****% to MSCG for quarters in which the ***** is less than $***** million.

 

  2. *****% to MSCG for quarters in which the ***** is higher than $***** but less than $***** million (MSCG receives *****% of the ***** in this band).

 

  3. *****% to MSCG for quarters in which the ***** is higher than $***** million but less than $***** million (MSCG receives *****% of the ***** in this band in addition to the amount received under A2 above).

 

  4. *****% to MSCG for quarters in which the ***** is higher than $***** but less than $***** million (MSCG receives *****% of the ***** in this band in addition to the amounts received under A2 and A3 above).

 

  5. *****% to MSCG for quarters in which the ***** is higher than $***** million but less than $***** million (MSCG receives *****% of the ***** in this band in addition to the amounts received under A2, A3 and A4 above).

 

  6. *****% to MSCG for quarters in which the ***** is higher than $***** million (MSCG receives *****% of the ***** in this band in addition to the amounts received under A2, A3, A4 and A5 above.

 

B. In the event that the total volumes of Light Finished Product produced in any quarter are below *****MB, MSCG and PBF would agree to adjust the ***** as follows:

 

  1. *****, where:

 

  (a) ***** = *****.

 

  (b) ***** = *****.

 

C. The total Sales Incentive will not exceed $***** per contract year.

 

D. For purposes of this calculation, the Location Premium will be calculated prior to any time-value-of-money adjustments and will constitute the aggregate ***** payable over the relevant quarterly period.

 

6


SECTION VI: SPECIALTY GRADE PREMIUM

In addition to the Location Premium (which, for the avoidance of doubt, shall not be paid on Specialty Grades), MSCG will also pay PBF a Specialty Grade Premium, which is a lump sum amount payable pursuant to Section 9.2 and calculated in the following manner:

Specialty Grade Premium = (A) x *****, where:

 

A. (A) = *****%.

 

B. Specialty Volume = with respect to the relevant transaction, the volume of specialty waterborne products sold by MSCG from the Refinery, where “specialty” means grades other than the grades listed on Schedule 1 of this Agreement.

 

C. FOB Specialty Product Price = the price, to be mutually agreed to by the Parties, of the Specialty Product as ***** by the designated mode of transportation. In cases where the FOB Specialty Product Price is not readily transparent, the Parties will use a ***** price for the Specialty Product in a relevant market, *****, as a guide for setting the FOB Specialty Product Price.

 

D. Next Best Alternative Product Price = the ***** of the “Next Best Alternative Product,” defined as the Product that the Refinery would produce if it chose not to produce the Specialty Grade Product. The Next Best Alternative Product Price would be mutually agreed upon by the Parties before the Specialty Grade Product was produced by the Refinery.

 

E. In addition, PBF will receive *****.”

On the ***** Business Day before the settle, an additional ***** of the contracts will be rolled (at the settlement price) to the contract for the month after the near month, and by the close of the ***** Business Day prior to the near month contract settle, the ***** of the contracts will be rolled such that all Cash Pricing Differentials will be based off the contract for the month after the near month.

From time to time, the Parties may amend and revise the Cash Pricing Differentials and/or the Delivery Costs. The Parties shall make commercially reasonable efforts to agree upon any updates, with MSCG serving as the ultimate calculation agent. MSCG shall keep PBF apprised of any spot market transactions that MSCG undertakes related to the supply or offtake of any of the Intermediate or Lube product streams. This information shall be used as an over-riding source of updates to the Cash Pricing Differentials.

In order to maintain consistency across technology platforms, on any given day that MSCG and PBF decide to change the Cash Pricing differentials, the change must be agreed to by 3pm ET. The updated Cash Pricing Differential will be applied to volumes produced or consumed by the Refinery on the day of the change (this volume data will be sent by PBF to MSCG on the morning of the Business Day after which the Cash Pricing Differential was changed).

Upon any change to a Cash Pricing Differential, MSCG shall calculate a True Up Amount as follows:

True Up Amount ($) = *****, where:

(X) = *****.

New Cash Pricing Differential = *****

Old Cash Pricing Differential = *****

The True Up Amount will be included on the first invoice that applies the new Cash Pricing Differential. If the True Up Amount is owed to PBF, then this amount shall be paid by MSCG to PBF and vice versa.

Note that any change in the Cash Pricing Differentials as a result of the rolling methodology described in the footnote to the table above will be considered cash flow neutral. These types of changes will not be factored into the True Up Amount and will not trigger the exchange of any funds between the Parties.
