O Valor Nominal desta Nota Comercial não será atualizado. Sobre o Valor Nominal desta Nota Comercial incidirão juros remuneratórios correspondentes à variação acumulada de 100% (cento por cento) das taxas médias diárias dos DI – Depósitos Interfinanceiros de um dia, “over extra-grupo”, expressas na forma percentual ao ano, base 252 (duzentos e cinqüenta e dois) dias úteis, calculadas e divulgadas diariamente pela CETIP, no informativo diário disponível em sua página na Internet (http://www.cetip.com.br) (“Taxa DI”), acrescida de um spread anual de 4% (quatro por cento), calculados de forma exponencial e cumulativa pro rata temporis por dias úteis decorridos desde a Data de Subscrição e Integralização até a data do efetivo pagamento ou, se for o caso, do Resgate Antecipado Obrigatório ou do Resgate Antecipado Facultativo das Notas Comerciais (conforme abaixo definidos) (“Remuneração”). A Remuneração será paga integralmente na Data de Vencimento ou, conforme o caso, na data do Resgate Antecipado Obrigatório ou do Resgate Antecipado Facultativo (conforme abaixo definidos), juntamente com o pagamento do Valor Nominal, calculada de acordo com a seguinte fórmula:

Observado o disposto no parágrafo abaixo, no caso de indisponibilidade temporária da Taxa DI quando do pagamento de qualquer obrigação pecuniária prevista nesta Nota Comercial, será utilizada, em sua substituição, para apuração de "TDIk", a última Taxa DI divulgada oficialmente, até a data do cálculo, não sendo devidas quaisquer compensações entre a Emissora e o titular desta Nota Comercial quando da divulgação posterior da Taxa DI que seria aplicável.
Caso a Taxa DI deixe de ser divulgada por prazo superior a 10 (dez) dias, ou caso seja extinta ou haja a impossibilidade ou limitação legal de aplicação da Taxa DI a esta Nota Comercial, será aplicada no lugar da Taxa DI, automaticamente, o parâmetro legal que vier a ser determinado, se houver. Caso não haja uma taxa substituta para a Taxa DI, será utilizada então a taxa média ponderada de remuneração dos títulos públicos federais brasileiros de curto prazo, à época de tal verificação, que tiverem sido negociados nos últimos 30 (trinta) dias, com prazo de vencimento de 180 (cento e oitenta) dias.
Translation - English
The Face Value of this Commercial Note will not be adjusted. The Face Value of this Commercial Note will yield interest corresponding to the accumulated variation of 100% (one hundred percent) of the daily average rates of the Interbank Deposits (DI - Depósitos Interfinanceiros) of one day, “over extra-group”, expressed in percentage per year, base 252 (two hundred and fifty-two) business days, calculated and published daily by the CETIP, in the daily bulletin available on its website (http://www.cetip.com.br) (“DI Rate”), plus a spread of 4% (four percent), calculated exponentially and cumulatively pro rata temporis for the business days elapsed since the date of subscription and payment until the effective payment date or, if it be the case, of the Mandatory Early Redemption or Optional Early Redemption of the Commercial Notes (as defined below) (“Remuneration”). The Remuneration will be paid in full on the Maturity Date or, as appropriate, on the date of the Mandatory Early Redemption or Optional Early Redemption (as defined below ), together with the payment of the Face Value, calculated according to the following formula:

Subject to the provisions of paragraph below, in the case of temporary unavailability of the DI Rate, upon payment of any monetary obligation provided for in this Commercial Note, the last DI Rate officially released will be used in its place for calculation of "TDIk", until the date of the calculation, no compensation being due between the Issuer and the holder of this Commercial Note according to the posterior publication of the DI Rate that would be applicable.
If the DI rate is no longer published for period of more than 10 (ten) days, or if it is abolished, or there is the impossibility or legal limitation of the application of the DI Rate to this Commercial Note, the legal parameter that may be given, if any, will be applied instead of the DI rate, automatically. If there is no substitute for the DI Rate, then the weighted average rate of return on short-term Brazilian government securities will be used, at the time of such assessment, which have been negotiated within the last 30 (thirty) days and maturing in 180 (one hundred and eighty) days.

The pneumatic control valves use common addressing to assist in locating and trouble shooting problems with an associated valve. The Pneumatic Manifolds in the station are labeled by number PM1, PM 2 etc.
The control valves on the manifold are also labeled by number V1, V2, V3, etc. The port of the valve is also labeled S12 (Green) and S14 (Orange). The figure below illustrates Pneumatic Manifold 1 (PM1) with 5 control valves V1-V5 (Bottom to Top). Each valve has two ports S12 (right side) and S14 (left side).
The first valve is labeled PM1.V1.S14 and PM1.V1.S12. If a control valve is faulted, it will be displayed on the HMI alarm banner in the same format i.e. PM1.V3.S14 would be Pneumatic Manifold 1, Valve 3, Port S14 (left side of valve).

Há muitos anos, o médium XXXXXX XXXXXXXX, que tem uma enorme quantidade de livros psicografados e dezenas deles publicados, recebeu um pedido dos Mestres da Luz, Guias de Lei e de Umbanda, no qual solicitavam que as informações reveladoras, por eles transmitidas, não fossem apenas para seu bel prazer, e sim para que, por meio dele, o conhecimento se multiplicasse. Com isso, XXXXXX começou a ministrar o curso de Teologia de Umbanda, um curso simples e teórico, visando a uma melhor formação do médium umbandista em relação aos Fundamentos da Umbanda.
Translation - English
Many years ago, the medium [name withheld], who has an enormous quantity of books psychographed (inspired by spirits) and dozens of them published, received a request from the Masters of Light, Guides of the Law and of Umbanda, in which they asked that the revelatory information transmitted by them not remain only with him, for his own pleasure, but that, through him, the knowledge be spread. With that, (name withheld) began to administer the course of Theology of Umbanda, a simple and theoretical course, aimed at better development of the medium of Umbanda in relation to the Fundamentals of Umbanda.

O segundo poço de extensão, o 3-BRSA-394-ESS, a 4,8 km do descobridor e 1,6 km do 3-
BRSA-353-ESS, a W/SW de ambos, constatou 520 metros de coluna de óleo, estando o topo
do reservatório carbonático a 4600 metros (-4575 m) e a base deste reservatório a 5120 m (-
5095 m), sem indicação do contato óleo/água. Apresentou características permo-porosas
inferiores àquelas constatadas nos outros dois poços da região. O primeiro teste de formação a
poço aberto no intervalo de 4925/5110 m (-4900/-5085m), no reservatório carbonático inferior,
constatou a presença de óleo de 38,3 °API. O segund o teste foi a poço revestido no intervalo de
4622/4644 m, no reservatório carbonático superior. Os resultados deste teste foram de baixa
produtividade, devido à faciologia da rocha que apresenta granulação fina (packstones
peloidais), baixas porosidades e baixíssima permeabilidade.
Translation - English
The second extension well, the 3-BRSA-394-ESS, at 4.8 km from the discovery well and 1.6 km from the 3 - BRSA-353-ESS, to the W/SW of both, found a 520 meter oil column, with the top of the carbonate reservoir at 4600 m (-4575 m) and the base of the reservoir at 5120 m (¬ 5095 m), with no indication of oil/water contact. It showed permo-porous characteristics below those found in two other wells of the region. The first formation test of the open hole in the interval of 4925/5110 m (-4900/-5085m), in the lower carbonate reservoir, found the presence of 38.3° API oil. The second test was the cased hole in the interval of 4622/4644 m, in the upper carbonate reservoir. The results of this test were low productivity due to the faciology of the rock that features fine grain (peloidal packstones), low porosities and very low permeability.
