Exhibit 10.9.3


C.Amendment of Section 9.4 of Agreement. Section 9.4 of the Agreement is hereby amended and restated to read in its entirety as follows:
During the first thirty-six (36) Months of the Term, the aggregate Monthly Fees shall be subject to increase by $0.04 per Barrel for every $1.00 that the Monthly average of the NYMEX West Texas Intermediate (“WTI”) crude price exceeds $50.00 per Barrel, with such increase being capped at a WTI crude price of $90.00. After the first thirty-six (36) Months of the Term and for the remainder of the Term, the aggregate Monthly Fees shall similarly be subject to increase by $0.04 per Barrel for every $1.00 that the Monthly average WTI crude price exceeds $63.75 per Barrel, with such increase being capped at a WTI crude price of $90.00. The above-described increases shall be offset by downward adjustments to reflect corresponding decreases to the WTI crude price from time to time, provided that no downward adjustment shall be recognized for decreases below a WTI crude price of (1) $50.00 during the first thirty-six (36) Months of the Term, and (2) $63.75 after the first thirty-six (36) Months of the Term. Each of the foregoing increases or decreases shall be applied on a Monthly basis, and calculated based on the Monthly average of the WTI crude price over the preceding Month. The adjustments set forth in this Section 9.4 shall be referred to herein as the “Upside Adjustments”. For the avoidance of doubt, no Upside Adjustment shall result in a Fee being decreased below the amount for such Fee set forth in Section 9.2, after giving effect to any PPI Adjustment. Notwithstanding the foregoing, for any month in which Shipper delivers an average of 20,000 or more Barrels of Oil per Day, the Upside Adjustment to the Truck Loading Fee shall be waived for all Oil delivered to the Gathering System from Shipper's wells outside the Dedication Area.
D.Ratification; Primacy. Except as expressly amended by this Amendment, all of the terms, provisions, covenants and conditions contained in the Agreement remain in full force and effect; provided, if there is ever any conflict between the Agreement and this Amendment, the terms, provisions, covenants and conditions contained in this Amendment shall govern. The terms and provisions of the Agreement as amended by this Amendment are binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Parties, their representatives, successors and assigns. As amended by this Amendment, the Agreement is ratified and confirmed by the Parties, and declared to be a valid and enforceable contract between them.
E.Counterparts. This Amendment may be executed in as many counterparts as deemed necessary. When so executed, the aggregate counterparts shall constitute one agreement and shall have the same effect as if all Parties signing counterparts had executed the same instrument.
F.Amendment; Waiver. Neither this Amendment nor the Agreement may be amended or modified except pursuant to a written instrument signed by all of the Parties. Each Party may waive on its own behalf compliance by any other Party with any term or provision hereof; provided, however, that any such waiver shall be in writing and shall not bind the non-waiving Party. The waiver by any Party of a breach of any term or provision shall not be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same or any other provision.
G.Joint Preparation. The Parties agree and confirm that this Amendment was prepared jointly by all Parties and not by any one Party to the exclusion of the other.



Exhibit 10.9.3


H.No Third Party Beneficiaries. This Amendment is not intended to confer upon any person not a party hereto any rights or remedies hereunder, and no person other than the Parties is entitled to rely on or enforce any provision hereof.
