GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
9. CONDITIONS OF RECEIPT AND DELIVERY
9.1 Southwest shall receive Quantities of natural gas from Shipper at
the Point of Receipt and Southwest shall deliver Quantities of
natural gas to Shipper at the Point of Delivery. Southwest and
Shipper shall, by mutual agreement, establish the date of
commencement of receipt and redelivery of gas hereunder. Receipts
and redeliveries of gas hereunder shall be at uniform hourly and
daily rates of flow as nearly as practicable.
9.2 Measurement shall be both volumetric and thermal, at a temperature
of 60ø Fahrenheit and at a pressure of 14.73 psia, and on the
basis of the methods prescribed and published by the American Gas
Association in conjunction with the ANSI/API 2530 Report as now
and any subsequent amendments thereof accepted and agreed upon
between the parties if orifice meters are used, and in accordance
with generally accepted industry practices, as mutually agreed
upon, if positive or turbine meters are used.
The Btu content shall be determined by taking the arithmetic
average of the heating value as recorded by recording calorimeter
or other method of determination generally accepted in the
industry. Flowing temperature shall be determined by a recording
thermometer or EGM.
9.3 Shipper may witness Southwest's installation or maintenance of
measuring equipment. Southwest shall not be required to verify
accuracy more often than once during any thirty (30) day period.
If, upon test, accuracy is found to be within 2% by volume
(chromatograph/calorimeter within 0.5%), such equipment shall be
assumed to be accurate. Any error exceeding these percentages
will require correction to zero error of previous recordings back
to the date error began. If beginning date of error is unknown,
correction shall extend to one-half the time since the last test,
not to exceed sixteen (16) days.
