GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

(d) The gas shall not contain any substances that interfere with the merchantability of the gas

or are known to be detrimental to pipelines, meters, regulators or other gas handling equipment. The gas

shall not contain any toxic, hazardous or environmentally unacceptable substances or organisms.

 

(e) The total oxygen content shall not exceed two hundredths percent (0.02%) by volume.

 

(f) The gas shall contain no more than four percent (4%) by volume of a combined total of carbon

dioxide and inert components. The carbon dioxide content shall not exceed one and twenty-five hundredths

percent (1.25%) by volume.

 

(g) The gas shall contain no more than two (2) grains of total sulphur per one hundred (100)

standard cubic feet. The gas shall contain no more than twenty-five hundredths (0.25) grains of hydrogen

sulfide per one hundred (100) standard cubic feet.

 

(h) The gas shall have a heating value of not less than 967 Btu (British thermal units) per

standard cubic foot, gross on a dry basis. The gross heating value of the gas shall be calculated from

analysis of the gas by 1) an online chromatograph, or 2) taking spot or continuous samples of the gas at

such times as may be determined by Transporter. The gross Btu shall be corrected for compressibility as

calculated from a gas analysis by an accepted type chromatograph (or other suitable instrument) for a cubic

foot of gas at a temperature of 60ºF, when containing no water vapor and at an absolute pressure of 14.73

psia.

 

(i) The gas shall have a Wobbe Index of one thousand three hundred (1,300) plus or minus six

percent (6%). The Wobbe Index is defined as that number obtained by dividing the saturated heating value of

the gas by the square root of its specific gravity.

 

(j) The gas shall have a flowing temperature of no greater than 100ºF.

 

25.4 Additional Conditions for Receipt of Gas.

 

(a) Should gas received by Transporter from any source ever fail to meet the above

specifications, then Transporter may elect to either continue to receive gas or refuse to take all or any

portion of such gas until the gas is brought into conformity with these specifications. Transporter

reserves the right to impose revised and/or further quality specifications at any time should Transporter,

in its sole discretion, deem it necessary to protect the safety and/or integrity of its pipeline system,

operations, or deliveries to other customers.

 

(b) Parties wishing to deliver gas into Transporter’s system will bear responsibility for

assuring their gas meets the above specifications. Proof of compliance with these specifications will be

determined via methods such as sampling and analysis of the gas; the frequency, scope and performance of

such determinations will be as directed by Transporter. Transporter reserves the right to require, at any

time, the installation of monitoring and control devices that will provide for automatic shut-in of the

receipt measuring station should Transporter deem it necessary to protect the safety and/or integrity of its

pipeline system, operations, or deliveries to other customers.

 

(c) Transporter reserves the right to refuse to execute any agreement that does not contain the

gas quality specifications and restrictions deemed reasonable and necessary by Transporter.
