docking, make application therefore to the Port Authority in writing and on forms prescribed,
specifying the date of docking, sailing, and the nature and quantity of cargo to be handled. The
Port Authority reserves the right to decline any application at its discretion. All assignments
shall be at the sole discretion of the Port Authority.

(C) No berth assignment shall be made such that the berthing of any vessel will obstruct in whole
or in part the Federal Channel, or the use of any other port facility; or, will cause the
facilities to be subject to damage or destruction, or in any other manner create a potentially
hazardous condition to personnel, property, or the safe and unencumbered flow of commerce.

As a part of its application for berth, the vessel, its owners or agents, shall advise the Port
Authority of the protection and indemnity association (P & I Club) which affords the vessel
indemnity coverage as well as the name and telephone number of the local legal representative
thereof knowledgeable with regard to such coverage. (Reference Rule 045)

Where berth facilities are not readily available, layberths, anchorage or mooring clusters will
be assigned at the discretion of the Port Authority.

Application for berth or other facility will be construed by the Port Authority to mean that all
charges will be promptly paid upon presentation of invoice therefore, and that all rules and
regulations of the Port Authority will be complied with. (See Rule 085, Dockage Charges.)

NOTE: A penalty charge equal to one day’s dockage shall be assessed against the
Agent for any vessel, barge or other watercraft that occupies a berth, and/or marginal track or

which a berth application in writing has not been received by the port authority in advance of
the vessel’s arrival in port.

075 VACATING OF BERTHS

When any vessel has been assigned a berth under the provisions of the Rule 070 of this tariff,
and the said berth is required, in the sole judgement of the Port Authority, for other public
purposes, such vessel shall upon order of the Port Authority immediately vacate said berth. (The
movement from the berth, under the terms and conditions of this Item, shall impose no
responsibility upon the Jackson County Port Authority, and the move shall be at no expense to
the Jackson County Port Authority.) Any such vessel failing to so vacate such berth shall be
assessed a penalty Dockage at the rate of One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00) per day or fraction
thereof. Assessment of said penalty Dockage shall not affect the right of the Port Authority to
effect removal of such vessel at the cost, risk and expense of the vessel, her owner, charter,
agent, or others.

080 REQUIREMENT OF VESSELS TO WORK OVERTIME

The agents and/or owners of all vessels which are accepted for berthing at any terminal
facilities of the Jackson County Port Authority may be required to work the vessel continuously
to completion with overtime for vessels’s account in all cases, when the berth assigned to the
vessel, or the assigned terminal or pier facility of the Jackson County Port Authority is, in
the sole discretion and judgement of and when declared by the management of the Port Authority,
to be congested or threatened with congestion.

Any vessel in berth which refuses to work continuously to completion shall vacate the berth
immediately (within three hours) upon orders of the Port Authority.

When a vessel loses her right to a berth by refusing to work continuously to completion, such
vessel will forfeit her turn at the berth assigned and shall be placed last on the list of
vessels which are assigned to the berth or terminal.

Should any vessel fail to vacate the berth or terminal facility or pier as herein provided, the
Port Authority shall have the right, authority and privilege to move or cause such vessel to be
moved from its berth at the vessel’s own risk and expense.

082 PORT SECURITY

(I)The Jackson County Port Authority, Port of Pascagoula, operates in full compliance with the
International Ship and Port Security (ISPS) code (additional reference 33 CFR 105). The property
of the Jackson County Port Authority public terminals are patrolled by security guards 24 hours
a day, seven days a week.

Persons and their vehicles are subject to search as mandated by federal law. Failure to comply
with any required searches by the security force will be considered grounds for denial of
passage through the gates of Port property. All vehicles, whether personal or commercial, will
be logged in at the gate on entry, and logged out on departure. All personnel must have a valid
TWIC card as a form of identification for entry onto port property. Personnel without a TWIC
card must be escorted under the TWIC Escort Policy of the Jackson County Port Authority.

Vendors, contractors, or other service providers seeking access to port facilities must first
obtain a Port License as described in Rules 025 and 030 of this Tariff. Persons and companies
not licensed shall be denied entry into the port unless special permission is granted by the
Port Authority. Vendors wishing to obtain a license to conduct business within the port should
contact the administration offices of the Jackson County Port Authority.

Parking is not allowed on the docks and aprons of the Jackson County Port Authority public
terminals. The docks, wharves, and warehouses of the public terminals are considered Restricted
Areas. Adequate parking areas are available in areas leading to the docks and wharves. At
elevated levels of security conditions of readiness, persons will be informed on entry into the
port of specific designated parking areas.

The use of cameras, video equipment, or other recording devices is not allowed on port property
without the advance permission of the Jackson County Port Authority. Persons violating this
provision will be required to surrender the discs, tapes, and / or the equipment itself
immediately until an investigation of the matter is complete.

084 SECURITY SURCHARGE

(A)A security surcharge, as described in this tariff item, shall be assessed against and
collected from all vessels, barges and cargo interests utilizing services or facilities of the
Port Authority in accordance with the notice filed with the Federal Maritime Commission by the
Gulf Seaports Marine Terminal Conference.

The security surcharge is assessed to recover costs incurred for security assessments, security
plans, equipment purchase, installation and maintenance and staffing required to implement and
maintain surveillance and access controls mandated by the Maritime Transportation Security Act
of 2002 and U.S. Coast Guard regulation 33 CFR 105.

The security surcharge will be assessed against vessels and barges as a percentage of total
dockage charged, and as a tonnage fee against cargo, with the exception of containers, which
will be assessed on a per unit basis. The security surcharge will be assessed in addition to all
other fees which may be due under this tariff as follows:

VESSELS and BARGES; 9.82% of total dockage assessed per port call

may be denied service or required to deposit estimated port charges in advance of using port
authority facilities or receiving services.

Should any vessel fail to vacate the berth or terminal facility or pier as herein provided, the
Port Authority shall have the right, authority and privilege to move or cause such vessel to be
moved from its berth at the vessel’s own risk and expense.
