1. OPERATIONAL LIMITS LAID OUT BY THE
ARGENTINA

P.N.A. - PREFECTURA NAVAL

"Particular navigation safety rules of applicable to SPM monobuoys, Attachment of SNAV


disposition, NA 9 Nro. 34/99"
1.1. Minimum visibility for mooring and unmooring:
Minimum visibility to start the mooring: 5 nautical miles
Minimum visibility to unmoor:
3 nautical miles.

1.2. Meteorological Conditions for mooring:


Maximum admissible wind speed:
Maximum wave height:

15 m/s (wind coming from the West)


1,8 m

For winds coming from other sectors or quadrants, the permitted speed must be lower,
so that the related wave does not reach the maximum height indicated.

1.3. Meteorological Conditions for operations:


Maximum admissible wind speed:

25 m/s (wind coming from the West)

1.4. Mooring maneuvers time:


Vessels under 70.000 DWT:

They can moor at night when the wind speed


does not exceed 5 m/s and/or the wave height
does not surpass 0,5 meters.

Vessel above 70.000 DWT:

They can only moor during daylight time.

1.5. Maximum allowed draft:

18 meters (59' 02")

It is required that the Lifting Vessels have mooring systems and manifold arrangements according to
the requirements of OCIMF (Oil Companies International Maritime Forum) included in
"Recommendations for equipment employed in the mooring of ships at single point moorings", third
edition, 1993, and "Mooring equipment guidelines", second edition, 1997.
The following features may be highlighted in the above publications:

Deck equipment:
 Distance between stopper - forward fairlead: 2.7 to 3.7 m.
 Stopper characteristics: SWL 200 tons, to secure 76mm chain. Throat section: 322 - 330mm x 356
- 360mm.
 Since only a single chain is used for mooring, it is deemed advisable to use a stopper and a central
fairlead.
 A Smit Bracket may not be used.
 For the exceptional mooring of vessels with 54mm stoppers, advance notice will be required, as
well as agreement to pay for the mooring chain change service according to TERMAP S.A. scale
of charges for services provided to vessels.
Manifold equipment:
 Horizontal distance between manifold flange-side of ship:
4.6 m
 Maximum height of flange center on main deck:
2.1 m
 Minimum distance between manifold flange centers:
2.0 m
 Distance between connection flange center to drip trays:
0.9 m (#)
(#) Due to the use of a 16" double carcass connection hose (1.4 m outside diameter), vessels failing
to comply with this last requirement shall not be connected.

4. OPERATIONAL SAFETY REASONS LIMITS


The mooring service provided by the Terminal includes a mooring vessel and a support tugboat.
All operations are performed with the assistance of the tugboat in order to keep the mooring hawser
tight and a safety distance between the buoy and the tanker's bow.
The buoys have a control system of the operational parameters, which is radio-linked with the Tank
Farm and the support tugboat. This telemetry system has automatic warning signals in which reference
values have been set for the Mooring and Loading Master. Operations will be suspended and vessel
unmooring will take place when the mooring hawser tension (because the meteorological and sea
conditions) exceeds 80 tons. in repeated readings, the tension tendency is in crescent and the immediate
weather forecast is unfavorable. When the system is not operative, or a spare buoy without telemetry
system (replacement) is in use, the unmooring will be realized the wind surpass the limit established by
the PNA.
It is required that all vessels have an inert gas system for treating their tank atmosphere.
Mooring Masters shall only authorize mooring of vessels having tank atmospheres with 8% or less O2
content by volume.
Vessels that, due to the number, volume and layout of cargo tanks, cannot load at the loading rate
agreed upon between Terminal and Producers in the relevant Rules, may be unmoored so as not to
delay the next vessel coming up within the agreed time window, and finish loading when the schedule
of vessels allows so.
In order to avoid a new nomination of vessels failing to comply with the requirements of the Company,
the Vessel Commanding Officer, Producers or Shipowners, Charterers or Freight Agents, shall be duly
advised of the reasons why they are disqualified from operating with the Company.

The Vessel Commanding Officer shall accept in written, the Conditions of Use of Terminals and
Services, as indicated in the new forms and appendices to the Port Rules to be published shortly.

5. MOORING MASTER
All vessel operations shall be decided by the Mooring Master, who will consider whether the mooring
and/or stay of the vessel at the Terminal are safe for the staff, the environment and the facilities, and
whether it meets the requirements established by TERMAP S.A. in its Port Rules.

6. ADITIONAL LIMITS
TERMAP S.A. reserves the right to establish new limitations at its Maritime Terminals whenever
conditions are detected during the operations of Vessels that may threaten the safety of the facilities or
of the environment.

8. COMMUNICATIONS
