GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

26. MEASUREMENT

The volumes of natural gas and the quantities of energy received or delivered through a meter or

meters shall be determined in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Section.

26.1 Measurement Unit. The Measurement Unit shall be one Dekatherm (one Dth) of natural gas and shall be

calculated by multiplying the volume delivered in Mcf by a fraction, the numerator of which is the Heating

Value and the denominator of which is 1,000.

26.2 Volumetric Measurement Base. The volumetric measurement base shall be one cubic foot of natural gas

at a pressure base of fourteen and seventy-three one-hundredths (14.73) pounds per square inch absolute, a

temperature base of sixty degrees (60°) Fahrenheit (519.67° R Absolute), and without adjustment for water

vapor content.

26.3 Atmospheric Pressure. The average absolute atmospheric (barometric) pressure shall be assumed to be

fourteen and four-tenths (14.4) pounds per square inch, irrespective of actual elevation or location of the

delivery point above sea level or variations in actual barometric pressure from time to time.

26.4 Temperature. The temperature of the natural gas shall be determined at Transporter's option:

(a) where Electronic Measurement equipment is provided, by continuous application of

instantaneous temperature measurements from one or more of the meters at a measuring station, or by

contemporaneous application of the arithmetic or other average of the temperature Record from one or more of

the meters for the time during which gas is flowing;

(b) where Electronic Measurement equipment is not provided,

(1) where an instrument which measures and records the temperature of the flowing gas is

installed, by contemporaneous application of the arithmetic or other average of the hourly or daily

temperature Record from one or more of the meters at a measuring station, or

(2) where an instrument which measures and records the temperature of the flowing gas is not

installed, by contemporaneous application of the temperature as read from established tables of monthly

averages for the point of measurement; or

(c) by any other method or methods mutually agreed upon by Transporter and Shipper.

26.5 Static Pressure. The static pressure of the natural gas shall be determined at Transporter's option:

(a) where Electronic Measurement equipment is provided, by continuous application of

instantaneous static pressure measurements from one or more of the meters at a measuring station, or by

contemporaneous application of the arithmetic or other average of the static pressure Record from one or

more of the meters for the time during which gas is flowing;

(b) where Electronic Measurement equipment is not provided, by contemporaneous application of the

static pressure Record from one or more of the meters at a measuring station, or by contemporaneous

application of the arithmetic or other average of the hourly or daily static pressure Record from one or

more of the meters at a measuring station; or

(c) by any other method or methods mutually agreed upon by Transporter and Shipper.
