31 THE TEXCHEM SYSTEM u CRUDE OIL TANK - ARDMORE, OK (150 diameter, external floating roof) CONTENTS : 2,000 Barrels (458 Tons) of Crude bottoms ( paraffins, resins & asphaltenes) CUSTOMER SPECIFICATION : Recovered Crude less than 0.5% BS&W; Removed solids to Customer Centrifuge plant. TEXCHEM PERFORMANCE : Cleaned in 9 days; Complete solids removal; Recovered Oil < 0.5% BS&W; No measurable organic vapors from operation u SLURRY OIL TANK - PORT ARTHUR, TX (120 diameter, fixed roof) CONTENTS : 38,000 Barrels (7,580 Tons) of sludge - (catalyst fines, paraffins asphaltenes & other sediment) CUSTOMER SPECIFICATION : Removed 30% dry weight (moisture balance); Recovered oil less than 5.0% BS&W. TEXCHEM PERFORMANCE : Cleaned in 150 days; Complete solids removal; Removed 95% dry weight (moisture balance); Customer saved $3.5 million on disposal; Recovered Oil < 1.0% BS&W; Customer reused C-105 treated oil to recover oil from adjacent tank; No measurable organic vapors from operation.

32 D YN M C D ERMOTT P ETROLEUM … revolutionary fluidization process using the C-105 chemical allowed us to clean tanks 1 & 2 within thirteen (13) days. (220,000 BBL tanks) … your process resulted in the recovery of 50,000 barrels of crude inventory, which under conventional tank cleaning processes would have been lost with attendant disposal costs. … and saved approximately $800,000 over typical mechanical cleaning processes. Robert McGough Director of Operations and Maintenance THE TEXCHEM SYSTEM

33 D IAMOND S HAMROCK We have used your tank cleaning chemical C-105 in our #82 heavy oil tank at the UDS Ardmore refinery and conclude that this is a great product to reduce the level of tank bottom sludge… … this is a breakthrough product that enables us to reduce substantially tank turnaround time and to recuperate in a liquid form a major portion of the tank bottom sludge that would be otherwise treated for disposal. Charles Patry Vice President, Supply Ultramar Diamond Shamrock
