5.2 Adjustment of Price Mechanism . Seller shall have the right at any time and from time to time, based on (i) discontinuance of the published market markers in the pricing formulas set forth in Exhibit 3 or the Limited Market Adjustment set forth in Exhibit 4 , (ii) changes in circumstances which make the applicability of the published market markers in the pricing
formula or the Limited Market Adjustment inconsistent with a competitive market-based pricing formula, or (iii) changes in the quality of one or more types of Oil, to notify Buyer that it wishes to adjust or amend the pricing provisions of Exhibit 3 and/or the Limited Market Adjustment in Exhibit 4 with the objective of ensuring that the price of Oil reflects market conditions for similar crude oils. Seller' s notice shall state the proposed effective date thereof, which shall be no earlier than thirty (30) Days after the date of its notice; provided , however , that the succeeding provisions of this Article 5.2 shall only apply if such proposed adjustment or amendment is applicable to Seller' s publicly announced pricing formula for deliveries of Oil destined for ports in the United States and that the new price shall not apply to Oil already nominated by Buyer. Buyer shall then have thirty (30) Days in which to accept or reject such proposed changes. If Buyer accepts Seller' s proposal or does not notify Seller within such thirty (30) Day period that it rejects Seller' s proposal, then the provisions of Exhibit 3 and/or Exhibit 4 shall be deemed amended in accordance with Seller' s proposal as of the effective date specified in Seller' s notice. If Buyer rejects Seller' s proposal, then the provisions of Exhibit 3 and/or Exhibit 4 shall remain in effect and unchanged; provided , however , that Seller shall have the right to submit the matter to arbitration pursuant to Article 21.1. In such arbitration, each Party shall submit its proposed alternative pricing mechanism, and the arbitration panel shall determine the appropriate adjustments, if any, to be made to the pricing formulas and/or the Limited Market Adjustment as of the effective date specified in Seller' s notice.
Limited Market Adjustment
6.1 Calculation of Limited Market Adjustment .
(a) For each Quarter during the Initial Term, Seller shall set off and deduct, and Buyer shall receive a credit and reduction for, an amount equal to (a) the difference, if any, between (i) the price per Barrel of Oil charged by Seller with respect to each Cargo of Oil lifted during such Quarter calculated in accordance with Exhibit 3 and (ii) the price per Barrel of Oil calculated in accordance with Exhibit 4 , multiplied by (b) the respective quantities of Bosce1n Oil and BCF-13 Oil delivered to the Refineries with respect to each such Cargo of Oil. Such setoff, deduction, credit and reduction is referred to herein as the " Limited Market Adjustment ," and each Limited Market Adjustment shall be determined and applied in accordance with clause (b) below; it being understood that any Cargo of Oil not delivered to either of the Refineries shall be disregarded for purposes of the Limited Market Adjustment.
(b) In the event that Buyer shall deliver any Cargo of Oil to any storage facility (" Storage Facility" ) for subsequent redelivery to a Refinery, upon the redelivery of such Cargo to a Refinery, such Cargo shall, for purposes of calculating the Limited Market Adjustment, if any, applicable to such Quarter, be deemed to have been delivered to a Refinery in the Quarter within which such redelivery occurs and the prices to be used shall be the prices applicable at the time of the original purchase.
(c) To the extent that, at any time, the sum of all Quarterly Surpluses exceeds the sum of
