Original Sheet No. 19 Original Sheet No. 19 : Effective
Shipper is obligated to deliver to Transporter gas meeting the quality
specifications set forth in NGPL's effective FERC tariff; provided,
however, that Transporter shall accept gas containing a saturation level
in excess of that permitted by NGPL's tariff where Shipper and
Transporter have entered into a separate agreement for downstream
3.1 Unit of Measurement: The transportation unit of gas received and
delivered by Transporter shall be a dekatherm, unless otherwise
indicated in this tariff.
3.2 Determination of Volume and Total Heating Value: The volume and
the total heating value of gas received and delivered by
Transporter shall be determined as follows, provided that
Transporter shall have the right, at any time, to rely on the
measurements and statements for quantities and heating values of
gas actually provided to Transporter by any relevant
(a) The unit of volume, for the purpose of measurement, shall be
one (1) cubic foot of gas at a temperature of sixty (60)
degrees Fahrenheit, and at a pressure of thirty-three
hundredths (.33) pounds per square inch above an assumed
atmospheric pressure of fourteen and four tenths (14.4)
pounds per square inch (fourteen and seventy-three
hundredths (14.73) pounds per square inch absolute pressure)
and dry. For gas volumes reported in cubic meters, the
standard conditions are 101.325 kPa, 15 degrees C, and dry.
(b) The total heating value of the gas per cubic foot shall be
determined at the receipt point on the basis of periodic
samplings to be examined at a qualified laboratory, and at
the delivery point by a recording chromatograph to be
located at the point of interconnection between the
facilities of Transporter and Shipper.
(c) Dekatherms delivered shall be determined by multiplying the
Mcf delivered by the ratio of the total heating value of the
gas delivered to 1,000. For purposes of this determination
the specific gravity and heating value shall be determined
at approximately the same time.
