UMO Price Bulletin Bulletin 09-002 September 15, 2009

Effective 12:01 AM on the above listed date, Omega Refining LLC (Buyer) will pay, unless otherwise contracted, the following calculated price for used motor oil (UMO) delivered to its Marrero, Louisiana refinery:


discount factor multiplied by Platt's Gulf Coast Waterborne No. 6, 3%S low price posting and averaged for a consecutive three-day period during which the postings are published and consisting of Platt's prices posted the day before, the day of and the day after receipt of UMO by barge, rail or truck at Buyer's Marrero facility.

Receipt of UMO means once Buyer has tested the UMO to ensure that the quality meets or exceeds the minimum standards acceptable to Buyer (viz., which are published below in Exhibit A) and once the UMO passes the off-loading flange connection to the barge, railcar or truck at Buyer's facility in Marrero, Louisiana.

Although the above discount factor is subject to change at any time, once the parties agree to a discount factor for specified shipments, the discount factor shall not change for those shipments.

For payment calculations, Buyer shall correct for volume and gravity to 60°F

Price may be further subject to either a premium or an additional discount depending upon quality, including water, sediment and glycol impurities. Posted price assumes total water, sediment and glycol content not to exceed 3% by volume which, if exceeded, will result in a reduction in price of $0.50/bbl for each 1% increment, or part thereof, of water, sediment and glycol in excess of 3%

Shipments may be made only after the supplier has received a release authorization or purchase order number from Buyer. Shipments delivered to, or received at, Buyer's Marrero facility without a release authorization or purchase order number are subject to rejection and return to shipper at shipper's cost.
