GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
2. MEASUREMENTS AND MEASURING EQUIPMENT
2.1 Unit of Measurement and Basis of Measurement of Gas:
The volumetric measurement base shall be one (1) cubic foot of gas
at an absolute pressure of fourteen and seventy-three-hundredths
(14.73) psia at a temperature of sixty (60) degrees Fahrenheit.
Measurement shall be in accordance with the March, 1978 Revision of
the American National Standard ANSI/API 2530, First Edition,
Orifice Metering of Natural Gas. The data, procedures, reporting
and equipment used to determine the quantity of gas measured shall
be as follows:
(a) Atmospheric Pressure: The assumed atmospheric pressure shall be
twelve and twenty-hundredths (12.20) psia at the Idaho-Nevada
Receipt Point, twelve and fifty-eight-hundredths (12.58) psia
at the Wadsworth Junction Receipt Point, twelve and sixty-five-
hundredths (12.65) psia at the LNG Plant, and as specified in
the executed Service Agreement at the Delivery Point(s).
(b) Flowing Temperature: The temperature of the natural gas flowing
through Paiute's meter stations shall be obtained by the use of
a recording thermometer or using a meter correcting apparatus
correcting to sixty (60) degrees Fahrenheit.
(c) Specific Gravity: The air specific gravity of gas received and
delivered hereunder shall be determined by means of a recording
gravitometer or gas chromatgraphy or other generally accepted
methods of determining specific gravity.
(d) Ownership of Gas Custody Transfer Measuring Equipment: Paiute
shall install, own, maintain and operate at points of delivery
a measuring station properly equipped with the necessary
metering equipment by which the quantity of gas received and
delivered hereunder shall be measured. All installation costs

facilities which will increase Paiute's capacity to deliver
natural gas will be borne by the affected Shipper.
