3. STANDARDS FOR MEASUREMENT AND TESTS
The measurement and test of quality of gas delivered hereunder shall be
governed by the following:
3.1 Except as provided by law, all fundamental constants, observations,
records and procedures involved in determining and/or verifying the
quantity and other characteristics of gas delivered hereunder shall,
unless otherwise specified herein, be in accordance with the standards
prescribed in Gas Measurement Committee Report No. 3, American Gas
Association, including the appendix thereto, as published September
1969, and any subsequent amendments thereof.
3.2 The unit of volume for purposes of measurement (other than of heat
content) shall be one (1) cubic foot of gas at a temperature of sixty
(60) degrees Fahrenheit and at a pressure base of fourteen and
seventy-three hundredths (14.73) psia. All measurements of gas shall
be determined by calculation into terms of such unit. All quantities
given herein, unless otherwise expressly stated, are in terms of such
3.3 Gas Transport shall own, maintain and operate, all measurement
facilities or cause same to be owned, maintained and operated, at the
Point(s) of Delivery. Said facilities shall be so equipped with

3.4 For the purpose of measurement and meter calibration, the atmospheric
pressure shall be assumed to be constant at fourteen and four-tenths
(14.4) pounds per square inch, irrespective of variations in natural
atmospheric pressure from time to time.
3.5 The water content shall be determined at such intervals as shall be
found necessary in practice by use of a Bureau of Mines dew point
