GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
9. QUALITY (continued)
9.4 Failure to Conform to Specifications. (continued)
conform to any of the specifications set forth in Sections 9.1, 9.2
or 9.3 relieve Shipper of Shipper's obligation to pay Transportation
Reservation Charges, if applicable. In no event shall the failure
of any gas made available to or on behalf of Shipper at any Delivery
Point(s) to conform to any of the specifications set forth in
Sections 9.1, 9.2 or 9.3 relieve Shipper of Shipper's obligation to
pay the Transportation Delivery Charges and, if applicable,
Transportation Reservation Charges.
The volume and the total heating value of the gas delivered to
Transporter at the Receipt Point(s) and made available to or on behalf of
Shipper at the Delivery Point(s) shall be determined as follows:
10.1 Unit of Measurement. The unit of gas, for the purpose of
measurement, shall be one Mcf.
10.2 Heating Value Per Cubic Foot. The total heating value of the
gas per cubic foot shall be determined for any month by taking the
weighted average of the heating values as recorded each day by a
calorimeter or as determined by chromatographic analysis of a sample
of gas collected daily during the month, or any other method mutually
agreed upon by Shipper and Transporter.
10.3 Determination of Dekatherms Delivered. The dekatherms delivered
shall be determined by multiplying the Mcf delivered by the ratio of
the Btu per cubic foot delivered to 1,000. For purposes of this
determination, the specific gravity and heating value shall be
determined at approximately the same time.
10.4 Determination of Temperature. The temperature of the gas passing
through each meter shall be determined for any day by the continuous
use of a recording thermometer so installed that it may properly
record the temperature of the gas flowing through each meter. The
arithmetical average of the temperature recorded each day shall be
used in computing gas quantities.
10.5 Specific Gravity. The specific gravity of the gas shall be
determined by the use of a recording gravitometer, which shall be
checked at least once each month, or any other method mutually agreed
upon by Shipper and Transporter.
