* Organic Chlorides can be analyzed in Prudhoe Bay for hydrocarbon recycle or for Pad 3 disposal. Occasionally a sample may have an interference with the test kits, in which case an 8260 VOC sample will be analyzed. An 8260 may be requested to be analyzed in lieu of the test kit method, in which case the charge will be that of the 8260 listed on page 3 of this rate schedule.
