Edition.

 

14.2 UNIT OF VOLUMETRIC MEASUREMENT - The unit of volume for

all purposes hereunder shall be one standard cubic foot

(1 SCF) as defined in Section 1 of the General Terms and

Conditions. Correction for the deviation of the Gas from

Boyle's Law at the pressures, temperatures and relative

densities under which the Gas is received or delivered

hereunder will be according to API Manual of Petroleum
