GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

 

(c) Dekatherms shall be determined by multiplying the Mcf volume by the ratio of the

heating value per cubic foot to 1,000.

 

(d) The temperature of the gas passing thorough the meters shall be determined

continuously by a recording thermometer so installed that it may properly record

the temperature of the gas flowing through the meters. The arithmetic averages of

the temperature recorded each day shall be used in computing Mcf gas.

 

(e) The specific gravity of the gas delivered shall be determined by the use of

chromatographic analysis or any other method mutually agreed upon. Determination

of the specific gravity and heating value per cubic foot (Btu/cf) shall be

determined at approximately the same time or from the same analyzed gas sample.

 

(f) The deviation of the natural gas from Boyle's Law shall be determined by the use

of the tables of formulae published by the American Gas Association Par Research

Project NX-19 corrected for carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrogen (N2), or any

applicable formulae published by the American Gas Association. The molecular

percentage of N2 and CO2 shall be determined at approximately the same time or

from the same analyzed gas sample used for the determination of heating value and

shall be used to determine the compressibility factors, with corrections for

temperature and pressure.

 

(g) The closing of measurement shall be no later than the fifth (5th) business day

after the close of the production month.

 

3. Determination of Receipts and Deliveries:

 

(a) Allocation of Receipts - Unless prohibited by applicable law or regulation,

the quantities received by Transporter at any receipt point shall be

allocated among Shippers and services in accordance with any allocation

procedures specifically agreed to by Transporter and the Balancing Party at

the receipt point(s) as set forth in the Balancing Agreement governing the

point; provided, however, Transporter will not be required to enter into

such arrangements with a party if that party does not meet Transporter's

creditworthiness provisions set forth in Article XXV of the General Terms

and Conditions.
