GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

26. MEASUREMENT

 

The volumes of natural gas and the quantities of energy received or

delivered through a meter or meters shall be determined in accordance with

the provisions set forth in this Section.

 

26.1 Measurement Unit. The Measurement Unit shall be one Dekatherm (one

Dth) of natural gas and shall be calculated by multiplying the volume

delivered in Mcf by a fraction, the numerator of which is the Heating Value

and the denominator of which is 1,000.

 

26.2 Volumetric Measurement Base. The volumetric measurement base shall be

one cubic foot of natural gas at a pressure base of fourteen and seventy-

three one-hundredths (14.73) pounds per square inch absolute, a temperature

base of sixty degrees (60°) Fahrenheit (519.67° R Absolute), and without

adjustment for water vapor content.

 

26.3 Atmospheric Pressure. The average absolute atmospheric (barometric)

pressure shall be assumed to be fourteen and four-tenths (14.4) pounds per

square inch, irrespective of actual elevation or location of the delivery

point above sea level or variations in actual barometric pressure from time

to time.

 

26.4 Temperature. The temperature of the natural gas shall be determined

at Transporter's option:

 

(a) where Electronic Measurement equipment is provided, by

continuous application of instantaneous temperature measurements from one or

more of the meters at a measuring station, or by contemporaneous application

of the arithmetic or other average of the temperature Record from one or more

of the meters for the time during which gas is flowing;

 

(b) where Electronic Measurement equipment is not provided,

 

(1) where an instrument which measures and records the

temperature of the flowing gas is installed, by contemporaneous

application of the arithmetic or other average of the hourly or daily

temperature Record from one or more of the meters at a measuring

station, or
