1. The listed constants are for use in the following interchangeability calculations only. The listed constants are not referenced

in any other section of the tariff.

2. The chemical composition of gas will be determined using accepted industry standards and procedures for chromatographic analyses.

3. Only the listed components are considered in the following interchangeability calculations. Any hydrocarbon compounds other than

those listed shall be assumed to be Pentane and allocated equally between i-Pentane and n-Pentane.

4. Chemical composition will be expressed in mole fractions of each component, x(i). The sum of the mole fractions of all listed

components will be one.
