GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1.8 The term "Btu" shall mean British thermal unit, and is defined as
the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound
of water one (1) degree Fahrenheit from fifty-nine (59) degrees
Fahrenheit to sixty (60) degrees Fahrenheit at a standard
pressure of fourteen and seventy-three hundredths pounds per
square inch absolute (14.70 psia). For reporting purposes, Btu
conversion factors should be reported to not less
than 3 decimal places.
1.9 The term "gross heating value" shall mean the quantity of heat in
Btu's liberated by the complete combustion at constant pressure,
of a cubic foot of gas at a temperature of sixty (60) degrees
Fahrenheit on a water free basis and at an absolute pressure of
absolute (14.73 psia) with air at the same temperature and
pressure as the gas, when the products of the combustion are
cooled to sixty (60) degrees Fahrenheit and when the water formed
by combustion is condensed to the liquid state.
1.10 The term "psia" shall mean pounds per square inch absolute.
1.11 The term "psig" shall mean pounds per square inch gauge.
1.12 The term "thermally equivalent" means an equal number of Btu's.
1.13 The term "MMBtu" is equivalent to the term "dekatherm" Dekatherms
shall be the standard unit for nominating, scheduling, invoicing,
and balancing. The number of dekatherms received or delivered
shall be determined by multiplying the number of cubic feet of
gas received or delivered, by the total heating value of such
gas, in British thermal units per cubic foot. Pressure base
conversion factors should be reported to not less than 6 decimal
places. For calculation purposes, not less then 6 decimal places
should be used for both conversion factors. Divide the product
by a million (1,000,000).
2. QUALITY OF GAS:

Shipper delivers hereunder to Transporter and the gas which
Transporter delivers hereunder to Shipper for transport shall be
