25. GAS QUALITY

 

25.1 General Requirement. Natural gas delivered to Transporter hereunder shall at all times conform to

the quality provisions set forth in this Section. Transporter shall not be required to receive gas from

Shipper or for Shipper's account which does not conform to the requirements of this Section. Shipper shall

indemnify Transporter and save it harmless from all suits, actions, regulatory proceedings, damages, costs,

losses and expenses (including reasonable attorney fees) arising out of the failure of said gas to conform

to such quality provisions.

 

25.2 Gas. The gas delivered to Transporter hereunder shall be a combustible gas consisting wholly of, or

a mixture of:

 

(a) natural gas of the quality and composition produced in its natural state;

 

(b) gas generated by vaporization of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG); or

 

(c) manufactured, reformed, or mixed gas consisting essentially of hydrocarbons of the quality

and character produced by nature in the petroleum, oil, and gas fields with physical properties such that

when the gases are commingled they become indistinguishable with respect to the physical properties of the

mixture.

 

25.3 Quality Standards for Gas Received by Transporter. All gas received into Transporter’s pipeline

system shall conform to the following quality specifications, regardless of source:

 

(a) The gas shall not contain in excess of seven (7) pounds of water vapor per million cubic

feet of gas at the base pressure and temperature of 14.73 psia and 60ºF. The water vapor content will be

determined in accordance with approved methods in use in the gas industry, using apparatus approved by

Transporter.

 

(b) The gas shall not have a hydrocarbon dew point of greater than 25ºF at any operating

pressure. The hydrocarbon dewpoint will be determined in accordance with approved methods in use in the gas

industry, using apparatus approved by Transporter.

 

(c) The gas shall not contain any elements, compounds or components beyond those normally found

in gas in its naturally occurring state. For purposes of these gas quality specifications, natural gas may

be deemed to include constituents such as the following:

 

aliphatic series hydrocarbons, such as the alkanes - e.g., methane, ethane, propane, iso-butane, N-butane,

neo-pentane, iso-pentane, N-pentane, hexanes, heptanes, octanes.alkenes (unsaturated hydrocarbons) – e.g.,

ethylene, propylene.

 

hydrogen

 

inert compounds – e.g., helium, nitrogen, argon, neon.

 

carbon dioxide

 

oxygen

 

hydrogen sulfide

 

other gaseous organic and inorganic compounds of sulphur.
