  2. To negotiate procurement conditions, the crude oil to be supplied by said potential suppliers should be suitable for CPC's refining needs. CPC will ask for crude-assay and might need samples for analysis when necessary, to decide if it meets refinery's requirement. 
  3. CPC will discuss sales/purchase agreement with those suppliers subject to the overall crude oil purchase plan and refining optimization. 
Consideration: Favorable yield with a transportation cost comparable to similar crude oil
