II. Discuss if it would make a difference of terms would change if MT also sells SLmX MTClean as a product and agrees to process all of SLmX’s oil mud from not only Kentucky, but California, and New York? What if the shipping was performed by diesel trucks on U.S. interstates through mostly large cities.

III. Please discuss UCC provisions that should apply to the sell of MTClean between MT and SLmX. Please note that the transaction involves services too.

IV. What provisions should MT have in its agreement with SLmX in case a tort occurs (e.g., someone killed during the transport of SLmX’s oil mud) between the parties and their commercial transaction.
