GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(continued)

 

 

15.3 In no event shall Pipeline be responsible for over-pressure protection

on Shipper(s) facilities.

 

 

16. MEASUREMENT & MEASUREMENT EQUIPMENT

 

16.1 Determination of Quantity. The quantity of gas received and

delivered by Pipeline for Shipper's account hereunder shall be measured

according to Boyle's and Charles' Laws for the measurement of gas under

varying pressures and temperatures with deviations therefrom provided in

Section 16.1(i) below and shall be determined as follows:

 

(a) The unit of measurement for the purpose of service under any of

Pipeline's rate schedules shall be one (1) Dt. The number of Dts 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 DTs per Cubic Foot, and by dividing the

product by 1 million (1,000,000).

 

(b) The unit of quantity for the purpose of measurement shall be 1 Cubic

Foot of gas at a temperature of 60º Fahrenheit, at a pressure of thirty-three

hundredths pounds per square inch (0.03 PSI) gauge and an atmospheric pressure

of 14.7 PSI, resulting in an absolute pressure of 14.73 pounds per square

inch.

 

(c) The unit of weight for the purpose of measurement shall be one (1) pound

mass of gas.

 

(d) The average absolute atmospheric pressure shall be assumed to be 14.7

pounds per square inch.

 

(e) 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 instantaneous measurement from the

electronic measurement equipment or the arithmetic average of the temperature

recorded each Day shall be used in computing gas quantities.
