         4.1 Eligibility. Each Officer who is an Officer as of the last day of a
Plan Year shall be eligible to participate in the Plan for that Plan Year.
         4.2 No Right to Participate. No Employee shall at any time have a right
to  be  selected  for  participation  in  the  Plan  despite  having  previously
participated in the Plan.
                                    Article V
                               Award Determination
         5.1 Performance Measures and Performance Goals. For each Plan Year, the
Committee  shall establish  ranges of attainment of the performance  goals which
will correspond to various levels of Award Opportunities.  Each performance goal
range shall include a level of performance  at which one hundred  percent (100%)
of the Target  Incentive  Award may be earned.  In  addition,  each range  shall
include  levels of  performance  above and below the one hundred  percent (100%)
performance  level at which a greater or lesser percent of the Target  Incentive
Award may be earned.
         After the performance  goals are established,  the committee will align
the  achievement  of the  performance  goals  with the Award  Opportunities  (as
described in Article V, Section 5.2 herein),  such that the level of achievement
of the  pre-established  performance  goals  at the end of the  Plan  Year  will
determine the Final Awards.
         The  Committee  may  establish  one or  more  Company-wide  performance
measures which must be achieved for any Officer to receive a Final Award payment
for that Plan Year.
         Following the  completion of each Plan Year, if the  performance  goals
were met,  the  Committee  shall  certify in  writing  prior to payment of Final
Awards that the performance goals for such Plan Year were satisfied.
         5.2 Award  Opportunities.  No later  than  ninety  (90) days  after the
beginning of each Plan Year, the Committee shall  establish,  in writing,  Award
Opportunities   which  correspond  to  various  levels  of  achievement  of  the
pre-established  performance goals. The established Award Opportunities may vary
in relation to the job  classification  of each Officer or among Officers in the
same job  classification.  Except as provided in Article V,  Section 5.7 herein,
Award  Opportunities  for Officers  shall be  established  as a function of each
Officer's Base Salary (as defined  below).  No later than ninety (90) days after
the beginning of each Plan Year,  the  Committee  shall  establish,  in writing,
various  levels of Final  Awards  which may be paid with  respect  to  specified
levels of attainment of the pre-established performance goals.
         For purposes of this  Article V, "Base  Salary"  shall mean,  as to any
specific Plan Year, an Officer's actual base salary paid while an Officer.  Base
salary shall not be reduced by any  voluntary  salary  reductions  or any salary
reduction  contributions made to any salary reduction plan, defined contribution
plan or other deferred  compensation plans of the Company, but shall not include
any payments under this Plan, the 1998, 2000 and 2002 Long Term Incentive Plans,
or any other bonuses,  incentive pay or special awards. In the event an Employee
becomes an Officer  during the Plan Year,  then only the salary  earned while an
Officer will be taken into account for awards under this Plan. The Officer shall
be eligible to receive any other applicable  cash-based  compensation from other
Company bonus plans for that part of the year in which he was not an Officer.
         5.3 Computation of Final Awards. Awards will be computed and paid based
on  the  attainment  of  the  pre-established   performance  goals.  Awards  for
proxy-named  Officers  will be funded with up to 1.5% of cash flow in  aggregate
with no more  than  0.5% of cash  flow  being  allocated  to any  individual  as
calculated by the  Committee.  Subject to Section 5.7 herein,  the Committee may
establish  performance  goals based on the Company's Pretax Income,  Net Income,
Earnings  Per Share,  Revenue,  Expenses,  Return on  Assets,  Return on Equity,
Return on Investment, Net Profit Margin, Operating Profit Margin, Operating Cash
Flow,  Total  Stockholder  Return,  Capitalization,  Liquidity,  Reserve Adds or
Replacement,  Finding and Development  Costs,  Results of Customer  Satisfaction
Surveys and other measures of Quality, Safety, Productivity,  Cost Management or
Process Improvement or other measures the Committee  approves.  Such performance
goals may be determined solely by reference to the performance of the Company, a
Subsidiary,  a Limited  Liability  Company or a  division  or unit of any of the
foregoing, or based upon comparisons of any of the performance measures relative
to other  companies.  The  Committee may also exclude the impact of any event or
occurrence which the Committee  determines should appropriately be excluded such
as, for example, a restructuring or other  nonrecurring  charge, an event either
not  directly  related  to the  operations  of the  Company  or not  within  the
reasonable  control  of the  Company's  management,  or a change  in  accounting
standards required by U. S. generally accepted accounting principles.
         5.4  Threshold  Levels of  Performance.  The  Committee  may  establish
minimum levels of performance goal achievement,  below which no payouts of Final
Awards shall be made to any Officer.
         5.5 No Mid-Year  Change in Award  Opportunities.  Except as provided in
Article V,  Section  5.7  herein,  each  Officer's  Final  Award  shall be based
exclusively  on the  Award  Opportunity  levels  established  by  the  Committee
pursuant to Article V, Section 5.2 above.
         5.6 Award  Adjustments.  The  Committee  shall have the  discretion  to
reduce or  eliminate  the  amount of the Final  Award  otherwise  payable  to an
         5.7 Possible Modifications.  In the event that changes are made to Code
Section 162(m) or the Regulations thereunder (or their interpretation) to permit
greater  flexibility with respect to any Award Opportunities under the Plan, the
Committee may exercise such greater flexibility consistent with the terms of the
AICP and, to the extent of such changes,  without regard to otherwise applicable
restrictive provisions of the AICP.
         5.8 Amend and Terminate.  The Board,  without notice,  at any time, may
modify or amend,  in whole or in part, any or all of the provisions of the Plan,
or suspend or terminate it entirely.
                                   Article VI
                             Payment Of Final Awards
         6.1 Form and Timing of Payment.  Unless a deferral  election is made by
an Officer  pursuant to Article VI, Section 6.2 herein,  or deferral of all or a
portion of an Officer's Final Award is required by Article VI, Section 6.3, each
Officer's  Final  Award shall be paid  within  seventy-five  (75) days after the
Award is approved in writing by the Committee.
         6.2  Voluntary  Deferral of Final Award  Payouts.  An Officer may defer
receipt of some or all  payments  otherwise  due under the Plan  pursuant to the
terms of a deferred  compensation plan sponsored by the Company under which such
deferral is permitted.
         6.3 Deferral of Final Award Payouts. In the event that all or a portion
of an  Officer's  Final  Award is not  deductible  by the  Company due to limits
contained in Code Section  162(m) or any successor  Code Section,  the Committee
may, in its  discretion,  require that payment of the  nondeductible  portion of
such Final Award be deferred under a deferred compensation plan sponsored by the
                                   Article VII
                            Termination Of Employment
         If before an Award is  actually  paid to an Officer  with  respect to a
Performance Period the Officer ceases to be a regular, full time employee of the
Corporation,  any of its Subsidiaries or any of its Limited Liability  Companies
for a reason other than death,  Total  Disability or  Retirement,  the Officer's
eligibility  under the Plan shall  terminate  and no Award will be paid.  In the
event a participating  Officer (who was an officer as of the first day of a Plan
Year) terminates  employment due to death, Total Disability or Retirement,  such
Officer shall be entitled to a pro rata portion of the Final Award calculated on
actual Base Salary earned by such Officer.
                                  Article VIII
                             Rights Of Participants
         8.1  Employment.  Nothing in the Plan shall  interfere with or limit in
any way the right of the Company to terminate  any  Officer's  employment at any
time,  nor confer  upon any  Officer  any right to continue in the employ of the
         8.2 Nontransferability. No right or interest of any Officer in the Plan
shall be  assignable  or  transferable,  or  subject to any lien,  directly,  by
operation of law or otherwise,  including, but not limited to, execution,  levy,
garnishment, attachment, pledge and bankruptcy.

Participant's continuity agreement with the Company),  receive a full payment of
the  Participant's  Target  Incentive  Award for the Plan Year during which such
Change in Control occurs, as determined by the Committee.  In such circumstances
the Committee shall determine the Final Award based upon such performance during
the Plan year until the date of the Change in  Control.  Such  amounts  shall be

as such  director was not  nominated by a person who  commenced or threatened to
