Section 1.34, such services shall be separately agreed to by the Parties on such executed Work Order and invoiced separately by APCETH to BBB. Such executed Work Orders (whether covering the manufacture of Product or otherwise) are essential parts of this Agreement and incorporated herein by reference. The Schedules attached to this Agreement are essential parts of this Agreement and incorporated herein by reference. In the event of contradictions or inconsistencies between this Agreement, its Schedules, including the applicable Quality Agreement, or any Work Order, the following order of precedence applies: (a) the main part of this Agreement, (b) the applicable Quality Agreement (including its attachments and references), (c) the applicable Work Order, and (d) the other Schedules; provided, however, the Quality Agreement shall prevail over the main part of this Agreement in matters of determining the Specifications and other quality or process requirements applicable to Product or its manufacture.

“If the employment of the Executive is terminated by the Company without Cause or by the Executive for Good Reason, the Company will pay the Executive 1.75 times the sum of (A) his base salary pursuant to Section 2(a) hereof, plus (B) an amount equal to the average annual Bonus paid to the Executive by the Company or the Parent for the three most recently completed calendar years prior to termination of employment; provided, however, that if the Executive’s termination of employment occurs before the Bonus, if any, for the most recently completed calendar year is payable, then the averaging will be determined by reference to the three most recently completed calendar years before that calendar year. Such amount shall be paid in substantially equal installments not less frequently than twice per month over the twenty-one (21) month period commencing as of the date of termination of employment, provided that the first payment shall be made sixty (60) days following termination of employment and shall include all payments accrued from the date of termination of employment to the date of the first payment; provided, however, if the Executive is a “specified employee” within the meaning of Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended (the “Code”), at the date of his termination of employment then, to the extent required to avoid a tax under Code Section 409A, payments which would otherwise have been made during the first six (6) months after termination of employment shall be withheld and paid to the Executive during the seventh month following the date of his termination of employment. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the total payments to be paid to the Executive hereunder, along with any other payments to the Executive, would result in the Executive being subject to the excise tax imposed by Code Section 4999, the Company shall reduce the aggregate payments to the largest amount which can be paid to the Executive without triggering the excise tax, but only if and to the extent that such reduction would result in the Executive retaining larger aggregate after-tax payments. The determination of the excise tax and the aggregate after-tax payments to be received by the Executive will be made by the Company after consultation with its advisors and in material compliance with applicable law. For this purpose, the parties agree that the payments provided for in this Section 3(c) (i) are intended to be reasonable compensation for refraining from performing services after termination of employment (i.e, the Executive’s obligations pursuant to Sections 4, 5 and 6) to the maximum extent possible, and if necessary or desirable, the Company will retain a valuator or consultant to determine the amount constituting reasonable compensation. If payments are to be reduced, to the extent permissible under Code Section 4999, payments will be reduced in a manner that maximizes the after-tax economic benefit to the Executive and to the extent consistent with that objective, in the following order of precedence: (A) first, payments will be reduced in order of those with the highest ratio of value for purposes of the calculation of the parachute payment to projected actual taxable compensation to those with the lowest such ratio, (B) second, cash payments will be reduced before non-cash payments, and (C) third, payments to be made latest in time will be reduced first. Any reduction will be made in a manner that is intended to avoid a tax being incurred under Code Section 409A.”

The term “Agreement”, as used in the Agreement, and all other instruments and agreements executed thereunder, shall for all purposes refer to the Agreement as amended by this Amendment. This Amendment may be executed in counterpart, each of which shall be deemed to be an original, and such counterparts together shall constitute one instrument.

In the event of conflict between the terms and conditions of this Plan and any of the Benefit Plans as they relate to the participant and any particular payment or Award hereunder, the order of precedence shall be as follows: (i) any Benefit Plan that constitutes an employment or severance agreement; (ii) this Plan; (iii) any other Benefit Plan that constitutes an annual or long term incentive plan; (iv) the Equity Plan; and (v) any agreement issued under the Equity Plan; provided, however, that no effect shall be given to any provision of this Plan that conflicts with any provision of the Equity Plan if and to the extent that such conflicting provision could not have been approved by the Company’s Board of Directors as an amendment to the Equity Plan pursuant to Section 14(a) of the 2006 Equity Incentive Plan (or any corresponding provision of any successor Equity Plan) without stockholder approval or the consent of the relevant participant, unless and until such approval or consent has been obtained.

“We have selected Bechtel as our EPC contractor for our next LNG export project being developed near Corpus Christi, Texas. Bechtel has an extensive track record in building some of the largest LNG export production facilities in the world and is the EPC contractor on our LNG export project at the Sabine Pass LNG terminal. Bechtel built our existing regasification facilities at the Sabine Pass LNG terminal on time and on budget and is ahead of schedule on the four LNG trains currently under construction,” said Charif Souki, Chairman and CEO. “Our Corpus Christi Liquefaction Project is now fourth on the U.S. DOE’s order of precedence for non-FTA LNG export approvals and is waiting to receive a FERC scheduling notice. We recently announced the first LNG sale and purchase agreement for the Corpus Christi Liquefaction Project with Pertamina for approximately 0.8 mtpa and expect to enter into additional SPAs in due course. We expect to reach FID for the Corpus Christi Liquefaction Project in 2014.”

As a result of the large number of individual documents submitted (the EAC Application, a Addendum to the Application; a Review Response Report Rev 1; a Review Response Report Rev 2; a 3rd Party Review Response Report and a 3rd Party Review Response Report Addendum), the Company prepared an Application Information Key (“AIK”). The AIK’s purpose was to assist the Reviewers by identifying the order of precedence of the various documents submitted. Effectively, the order of precedence addresses any potential differences between documents, such as variations in results or assessments, by identifying the more current documents that take precedence over prior documents. The AIK summarizes the primary change from the EAC Application of September 2009. For your information, we have made the AIK available on our reports section of the company’s website.
