GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

4. MEASUREMENT

 

The volume and total heating value of the gas shall be determined as follows:

 

A. The unit of gas transported shall be one million (1,000,000) Btu's

(MMBtu), as defined in Section 1 of the General Terms and Conditions. The

number of MMBtu's received or delivered shall be determined by multiplying the

number of cubic feet of gas received or delivered, measured on the measurement

basis hereinafter specified, by the total heating value of such gas, in

British thermal units per cubic foot, rounded to not less than 6 decimal

places and by dividing the product by one million 1,000,000.

 

B. The unit of volume for the purpose of measurement and for the

determination of total heating value shall be one cubic foot of gas at a

temperature of sixty (60) degrees Fahrenheit and an absolute pressure of 14.73

psia.

 

C. The average atmospheric pressure of gas transported by Transporter shall

be assumed to be fourteen and seventy-three hundredths (14.73) pounds per

square inch absolute (14.73 psia) irrespective of actual elevation or location

of the point of delivery above or below sea level or variations in such

atmospheric pressure from time to time.

 

D. At points of measurement; (i) where the installation of a recording

thermometer is provided, the arithmetic average of the temperature of the gas,

flowing through the meters, as recorded, shall be used in computing gas

volumes; or (ii) where recording thermometers, correcting indices or

temperature compensating meters are not installed, the temperature of the gas

shall be assumed to be the climatological standard normal average monthly

temperature as established by the nearest National Oceanic and Atmospheric

Administration weather bureau and published by the U. S. Department of

Commerce.

 

E. When ultrasonic meters are used to measure volume of gas received or

delivered, the volume of gas shall be computed in accordance with the most

current edition of American Gas Association Committee Report No. 9.

 

F. When orifice meters are used to measure volumes of gas received or

delivered, the volume of gas shall be computed in accordance with the most

current edition of the American Gas Association Committee Report No. 3 (API

14.3)
