SIB-I-3
SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS TO BIDDERS REQUISITION NO. 3000672897

reports to the Saudi Arab Government, its agencies and officials, concerning such
matters as:

6.1.1 Violation of laws or regulations by employees brought to Saudi Arabia to


engage in the performance of the WORK.

6.1.2 Arranging for passports, visas, authorizations, WORK and residence permits
and licenses required for entry to and departure from Saudi Arabia for
CONTRACTOR and CONTRACTOR's employees, including Vendor
Representatives and consultants.

6.1.3 Employee Relations and claims against CONTRACTOR under the Saudi Arab
Labor and Workmen Law, the Saudi Arab Social Insurance Regulations or

6.2 Bidders shall maintain effective liaison with the appropriate Saudi Arab Government

7.0 SAUDI ARAB CUSTOMS DUTIES

Article 98 Paragraph 4 of the Rules for the Implementation of Saudi Arab Customs Regulations
provides for the import and re-export of tools and equipment on a refundable deposit basis. To
eliminate unnecessary expenditures, Bidders are not to include in their bid(s) any costs to
cover customs duties for CONTRACTOR-supplied tools and equipment to be re-exported.
With regard to Saudi Arab Customs on tools and equipment to be re-exported,
CONTRACTORs should:

7.1 Furnish Customs Authority with a list of the tools and equipment. Particulars and
quantities of the tools and equipment are to be listed in duplicate, one copy shall be
maintained by Customs Authority for reference upon re-export and the other copy shall
be given to CONTRACTOR. The tools and equipment must be segregated and
shipped separately on individual airway bill or bill of lading.

SIB-I-4
SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS TO BIDDERS REQUISITION NO. 3000672897

7.2 Indicate the approximate period during which the tools and equipment will be
temporarily used in the Kingdom.

7.3 Pay customs duties and additional charges on the tools and equipment as a deposit,
which will be retained for a period of six months. The CONTRACTOR is expected to re-
export the items before the end of the period of six months.

7.4 Contact Customs Authority within the six month period in the event CONTRACTOR
wishes to extend such period requesting extension of the period with a justification for
the extension, otherwise the deposit will be forfeited. The period may not be extended
for more than a year except under exceptional circumstances, and only by order of the
Ministry of Finance.

7.5 Deposits will be refunded only after confirming that the quantities and particulars of the
tools and equipment have been verified against the import lists and after re-export is
confirmed. Only the customs duties collected excluding additional portage and port
charges are refunded, on the basis that such tools and equipment have been provided
services of unloading on docks and transportation. Irrevocable customs duties will be
imposed on tools and equipment which remain in the Kingdom and which
CONTRACTOR intends to sell locally. Such duties will be deducted from the
refundable deposit on the basis of charges assessed when the tools and equipment
were imported.

8.0 PROCUREMENT OF MATERIALS UNDER TURNKEY CONTRACTS

Procurement Policies

8.1 The requirements of Schedule G reflect policies which SAUDI ARAMCO steadfastly
maintains. These policies aim to:
a. actively promote the development of the local Saudi business community; and
b. foster strong business relationships with Saudi suppliers to ensure both long term
purchasing economies and material quality; and
c. Encourage Saudi suppliers to establish and maintain inventories of materials in the
Kingdom so that SAUDI ARAMCO operations are not interrupted.

In order to advance its commercial interests including the development of local supply
capabilities, SAUDI ARAMCO strongly supports the growth of the Saudi infrastructure
particularly that of the Saudi manufacturing sector. SAUDI ARAMCO has established
two major policies for its own procurement. To summarize:

First: Materials must come from sources which are technically capable and
financially qualified, whose products meet our technical requirements, and
whose bids are selected on a non-discriminatory basis.

Second: Materials must come from sources which are financially competitive, and,
where Saudi Manufacturers or Saudi Agents of out-of-Kingdom sources are
competitive, material requirements are preferentially to be purchased from
these In-Kingdom sources of supply.

8.2 SAUDI ARAMCO has estimated that if it, rather than the CONTRACTOR, were
procuring the material for the Facilities, eighty percent (80%) of the material would be
SIB-I-5
SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS TO BIDDERS REQUISITION NO. 3000672897

purchased from Saudi manufacturers and Saudi vendors who supply materials from out
of Kingdom sources.

8.3 SAUDI ARAMCO is providing this estimate not to indicate a target which the
CONTRACTOR must achieve, but to assist each Bidder in determining the amount of
work which the CONTRACTOR's purchasing office in Saudi Arabia could perform.

8.4 To facilitate these policies, specific reporting requirements for materials invoicing source
identification, and Purchase Order Placement are included as CONTRACTOR
obligations in Schedule G Attachment II, paragraph 3.2 Identification of Source of
Material.

9.0 SAUDI MANUFACTURER PARTICIPATION

In accordance with Schedule G, the CONTRACTOR shall contemporaneously solicit quotes


from both Saudi manufacturers and out-of-Kingdom suppliers for those materials identified in
SAUDI ARAMCO's report and valued above $10,000. The lowest priced technically acceptable
quote from each of these two groups shall be transmitted to SAUDI ARAMCO. After applying
an equalization formula, SAUDI ARAMCO may exercise the right to direct CONTRACTOR's
placement of these goods. Any additional costs to the CONTRACTOR which are directly
attributable to this direction shall be reimbursed.

10.0 PREFERENCE FOR SAUDI CARRIERS

SAUDI ARAMCO utilizes the National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia (NSCSA) and the
United Arab Shipping Company (UASC) for ocean shipments, and the Saudi Arabia Airlines
(Saudia) for air shipments, or their agents and representatives, for shipping a significant portion
of its material. SAUDI ARAMCO encourages its CONTRACTORs and suppliers to also utilize
the services of these Saudi companies when shipping material for SAUDI ARAMCO projects
whenever their services and their costs are competitive with other alternatives.

11.0 SAUDI ARABIAN STANDARDS ORGANIZATION ICCP CERTIFICATION

For any material which Bidder proposes to import and which requires certification under
present Saudi Arabian Standards Organization (SASO) International Conformity Certification
Program (ICCP) regulations, a certificate of conformity will be required for submittal to the
Saudi Arab Customs authorities to allow clearance of the goods.

Questions regarding exact standards and procedures for ICCP certification should be directed
to the SASO appointed Program Manager:

SIB-I-6
SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS TO BIDDERS REQUISITION NO. 3000672897

12.0 ADHERING TO GOVERNMENT SAFETY AND SECURITY REGULATIONS

SAUDI ARAMCO received a letter from the Projects and Engineering Division of General
Security (Ministry of Interior) in the Eastern Province indicating that some SAUDI ARAMCO
CONTRACTORs have not been adhering to traffic safety regulations and have also been
beginning work before obtaining the necessary Government permits. The Ministry reminded
that this would result in such CONTRACTORs being stopped from performing their work and
being subject to fines.

As a result, SAUDI ARAMCO wishes to draw all CONTRACTORs attention to this matter and
remind everyone that it is each CONTRACTORs responsibility to follow all applicable
Government and SAUDI ARAMCO rules and regulations. A CONTRACTORs failure to do so,
and any resulting delays, will constitute a breach of Contract with SAUDI ARAMCO in addition
to the penalties and disciplinary actions imposed by the Government.

13.0 SAFETY AND WILDLIFE CONSERVATION

SAUDI ARAMCO received a letter from the Civil Defense Directorate indicating that some
SAUDI ARAMCO CONTRACTORs building access roads have been digging several trenches
and leaving them unburied after WORK completion. Since these unburied trenches are
extremely dangerous especially during rainfalls, SAUDI ARAMCO CONTRACTORs who dig
trenches for building access roads or for any other reason, must install barricades, warning
signs and cautionary tapes around these trenches. Upon completion of WORK,
CONTRACTORs must backfill or bury these trenches to their original conditions.

Furthermore, CONTRACTORs performing WORK in desert areas shall make sure that they
preserve the wildlife environment such as trees, desert roads and valley streams, except as
specifically required for the execution of the WORK.
