GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Continued)

 

 

(c) The total heating value of the gas per cubic foot shall be determined by taking the

average of the heating values determined as determined by chromatographic analysis

of a sample of gas or any other method mutually agreed upon. The average (flow

weighted) heating value of the gas per cubic foot (Btu/cf) for a unit of time shall

be determined by the total dekatherms divided by the total Mcf volume multiplied by

1000.

 

(d) Dekatherms delivered shall be determined by multiplying the Mcf volume by the ratio

of the heating value per cubic foot to 1,000.

 

(e) The temperature of the gas passing through the meters shall be determined

continuously by a recording thermometer so installed that it may properly record

the temperature of the gas flowing through the meters. Arithmetic averages of the

temperature recorded each day shall be used in computing the Mcf of gas.

 

(f) The specific gravity of the gas delivered shall be determined by the use of

chromatographic analysis or any other method mutually agreed upon. Determination

of the specific gravity and heating value per cubic foot (Btu/cf) shall be

determined at approximately the same time or from the same analyzed gas sample.

 

(g) The deviation of the natural gas from Boyle's Law shall be determined by the use of

the tables of formulae published by the American Gas Association Par Research

Project NX-19 corrected for carbon dioxide and nitrogen, or any applicable formulae

published by the American Gas Association. The molecular percentage of N2 and CO2

shall be determined at approximately the same time or from the same analyzed gas

sample used for the determination of the compressibility factors, with corrections

for specific gravity, temperature and pressure.

 

 

2. Determination of Deliveries and Receipts:

 

(a) Allocation of Receipts - Unless prohibited by applicable law or regulation, the

quantities received by Transporter at any receipt point shall be allocated among

Shippers and services as follows:

 

In accordance with allocation procedures specifically agreed to by Transporter and

the Operator in the Operational Balancing Agreement set forth on Tariff Sheet Nos.

119 through 125; provided, however, Transporter will not be required to enter into

such arrangements (1) with a party if that party does not meet Transporter's

creditworthiness provisions as set forth in Article XXII of these General Terms and

Conditions, or (2) with aggregators of supplies other than an operator or
