GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Continued)

 

II. QUALITY

 

1. The provisions set forth in this Article II Section 1 shall apply to all gas delivered

by Transporter under this Tariff.

 

(a) Heating Value: The natural gas shall have a total heating value of not less than

nine hundred and sixty-seven British thermal units per cubic foot. Transporter may

subject, or permit the subjection of, the natural gas to compression, cooling,

cleaning and other processes and helium, natural gasoline, butane, propane, and any

other hydrocarbons except methane may be removed prior to delivery to Shipper. In

the event that the total heating value of gas, per cubic foot, in any month when

determined as provided in Section 1 of Article III hereof, falls below nine hundred

and sixty-seven (or above eleven hundred in the case of citygate deliveries)

British thermal units per cubic foot, Shipper shall have the option to refuse to

accept said gas so long as said total heating value remains below nine hundred and

sixty-seven (or above eleven hundred in the case of citygate deliveries) British

thermal units per cubic foot.

 

(b) Freedom from Objectionable Matter: The natural gas delivered by Transporter under

this Tariff shall be commercially free (at prevailing pressure and temperature in

Transporter's pipeline) from objectionable odors, dust, or other solid or liquid

matters which might interfere with its merchantability or cause injury to or

interference with proper operation of the lines, regulators, meters or other

appliances through which it flows, and shall not contain more than one grain of

hydrogen sulphide per one hundred cubic feet.

 

2. Failure to Conform to Specifications against Objectionable Matter: If the gas offered

for delivery by Transporter shall fail at any time to conform to any of the

specifications set forth in Section 1 of this Article, then Shipper shall notify

Transporter of such deficiency and thereupon may at Shipper's option refuse to accept

delivery pending correction by Transporter. Upon Transporter's failure promptly to

remedy any deficiency in quality as specified in Section 1 of this Article, Shipper may

accept delivery of such gas and may make changes necessary to bring such gas into

conformity with such specifications, and Transporter may reimburse Shipper for any

reasonable expense incurred by it in effecting such changes.

 

3. Unless otherwise provided in the Transportation Agreement or applicable Rate Schedule,

the provisions set forth in this Article II, Section 3 shall apply to all gas delivered

to Transporter by Shipper.
