GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
5. MEASUREMENT & MEASUREMENT EQUIPMENT
5.1 Determination of Quantity
The quantity of Natural Gas received and delivered by
Transporter to Shipper or for Shipper's account
hereunder shall be measured according to Boyle's and
Charles' Laws for the measurement of Natural Gas under
varying pressures and temperatures with deviations
therefrom as provided in Subsection 5.1(I) and shall
be determined as follows.
(a) The unit of measurement for the purpose of
service under any of Transporter's Rate
Schedules shall be one (1) Dth, which is the
heat energy equivalent of one (1) MMBtu. The
number of MMBtu's delivered shall be determined
by multiplying the number of Cubic Feet of
Natural Gas received or delivered, measured on
the measurement basis hereinafter specified, by
the Total Heating Value of such Natural Gas, in
Btu's per Cubic Foot, and by dividing the
product by one million (1,000,000).
(b) The unit of quantity for the purposes of
measurement shall be one (1) Cubic Foot of
Natural Gas at a temperature of sixty degrees
(60§) Fahrenheit, at a pressure of 14.73 psia.
(c) The unit of weight for the purpose of
measurement hereunder shall be one (1) pound
mass of Natural Gas.
(d) The average absolute atmospheric pressure shall
be assumed to be 14.4 psia.
(e) The flowing temperature of the Natural Gas shall
be determined in accordance with industry
standards for the purposes of measured volume
