Scope of project
Apache Corporation (“Apache”) is engaging Verdisys, Inc. (“Verdisys”) to continue to provide a high-speed satellite
connection to forty sites in the domestic United States (the “Sites”). Service includes collocation fees and additional channel
fees to provide access from the Network Operations Centers located in McLean, Virginia.
1.0 Term of Contract and Bandwidth Services
Bandwidth services (“Services”) will be billed quarterly at the monthly fee depicted below. The term of the Service is 24 months.
Contract is cancelable any time within the initial 30 days of the contract, or by June 30, 2005, in its entirety. After the initial 30
days service is committed for the balance of the 24 month period. Monthly bandwidth services are invoiced quarterly in
advance once a site is installed and Service commissioned. The initial month and subsequent two month period will be billed
separately. Subsequent billings will be quarterly in advance. This service is the same as the existing service that Verdisys
provides for Apache’s current sites. Based upon the redundant network operations centers we are able to offer 99.9 per cent up
time for the service.
