1.9 The term "Day" or "Gas Day" shall mean a period of twenty-
four consecutive hours, beginning and 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 Shipper.
