GENERAL CONDITIONS
One paper copy of the final report is provided to the client. In addition, data can be provided on computer media, sent by fax, or transmitted directly into the client's database system. Where applicable, raw and/or processed data can be provided on computer media or transmitted electronically. Prices listed are based upon Baseline/DGSI standard methods and report procedures. Providing analyses to the client using their preferred methods is not a problem, however, prices may have to be adjusted for customized methods. Volume discounts will be considered on large, individual, or serial projects on a case-by-case basis. Turn-around-time is dependent upon the number of samples submitted and the types of analyses requested. Generally, the turn-around-time to receive analytical data is three to four weeks from the date of sample receipt. More rapid processing is available upon request but a surcharge will be applied if overtime work is required to meet client deadlines. Clients are notified in advance of any surcharges. An additional week should be added for the interpretation of the data. There is no cost for basic data reports, which includes comments on data quality and significance, limited graphics, and instrument plots (e.g. gas chromatograms and vitrinite reflectance histograms). Gas chromatography, pyrolysis gc, and gc/ms analyses include compound identifications and ratio calculations. Interpretive reports are charged at hourly rates according to the time required to do the work. These reports may include geochemical logs, graphics, GC or biomarker interpretation, integration with geology and geophysics, and discussion of exploration significance. Charges for most projects usually range from 15 to 25 percent of analytical costs. Two report copies, one bound and one unbound are included. Additional copies can be provided at reproduction cost. Specialized analyses such as isotopes, metals, and physical properties of oils and water are subcontracted. Prices and subcontractor names are available upon request. Any remaining sample material, or generated sample products, will be stored for one month after the final report is issued to the client. Thereafter, the materials will be properly discarded at the discretion of Baseline/DGSI.
