(a) Measurement Unit
The unit of the natural gas deliverable shall be a Dekatherm
(one Dt) of gas on the measurement basis hereinafter set forth.
(b) Quantity and Heating Value
The quantity and the Heating Value of the natural gas delivered
by Company to or for the account of Customer or delivered by
Customer or Customer's transporter to Company for
liquefaction shall be determined as follows:
(i) The unit of measurement for the purpose of service
under any of Company's rate schedules shall be one (1)
dekatherm (Dth), consisting of one million (1,000,000)
British Thermal Units. The number of dekatherms delivered
shall be determined by multiplying the number of cubic
feet of gas received or delivered, measured on the measurement
basis hereinafter specified, by the total heating value of
such gas, in British Thermal Units per cubic foot, as defined
in Section 1 of the General Terms and Conditions, and by
dividing the product by 1 million (1,000,000).
(ii) The unit of quantity for the purpose of measurement shall
be 1 cubic foot of gas at a temperature of 60o Fahrenheit
and at an absolute pressure of 14.73 pounds per square inch.
(iii) The unit of weight for the purpose of measurement shall
be one (1) pound mass of gas.
(iv) The average absolute atmospheric pressure shall be assumed
to be 14.7 pounds per square inch.
(v) The temperature of the gas passing through the meters
shall be determined by the use of electronic transducers,
recording thermometer or other temperature measuring devices.
The arithmetic average of the temperature recorded each 24-hour
day shall be used in computing gas quantities or continuous
instantaneous temperature measurements as may be applied to
metering instruments to provide the quantity computation.
