ARTICLE VI - MEASUREMENT OF GAS (Continued)
6.2 Measurement Procedures. (Continued)
subsequent revision thereof acceptable to Transporter and Shipper.
When used, orifice meters shall be operated at a nominal Beta
ratio of 0.5, but in no event shall the Beta ratio be less than
0.4 nor greater than 0.6. Transporter shall provide and use
multiple meters when the operational range of Gas flow rates would
necessitate Beta ratios outside of such limits. Where positive
displacement meters, turbine meters, ultrasonic meters or other
measuring devices are used, they shall be installed and operated
in accordance with then-current American Gas Association
recommendations, where available.
All meters shall be equipped with electronic flow computers, and
all orifice meters shall be equipped with straightening vanes.
Transporter shall make available, at no expense to Shipper, access
to electronic signals from all electronic measuring and metering
devices installed on Transporter's system but shall not be
required to install, maintain or pay for any additional
facilities. If facilities are required in order to access
electric signals it shall be at Shipper's expense.
6.2.2 Deviation from Ideal Gas Laws. Correction shall be made for
deviation of the Gas from Boyle's Law at the pressure and
temperature at which the Gas is metered. Deviation of Gas from
Boyle's Law shall be computed in accordance with the American Gas
Association Bulletin Number 8 and any modifications and amendments
thereto applied in a practical manner.
