ending at 9 a.m. Central Clock Time (CCT).
1.10 The term "Dth" shall mean dekatherm and shall be the quantity of heat energy equal to 1,000,000
British thermal units (MMBtu). Dth is the standard quantity for Nominations, Confirmations, Imbalance and
Scheduled Quantities in the United States. The standard quantity per gas day in Canada is gigajoule (GJ),
which is equal to 1,000,000,000 joules. The standard quantity per gas day in Mexico is gigacalorie (GC),
which is equal to 1,000,000,000 calories. For commercial purposes, the standard conversion factor between Dth
and GJ is 1.055056 GJs per Dth and between dekatherms and GCs is 0.251996 per Dth. The standard Btu is the
international Btu, or Btu(IT); the standard joule is the joule specified in the SI system of units.
1.11 The term "Delivery Point" shall mean a point at which Transporter agrees to deliver gas on behalf of
