GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

----------------------------

 

(d) The standard quantity for nominations,

confirmation and scheduling is dekatherms per gas day in the United

States, gigajoules per gas day in Canada and gigacalories per gas day

in Mexico. (For reference, 1 dekatherm = 1,000,000 Btus; 1 gigajoule

= 1,000,000,000 joules; and 1 gigacalorie = 1,000,000,000 calories.)

For commercial purposes, the standard conversion factor between

dekatherms and gigajoules is 1.055056 gigajoules per dekatherm and

between dekatherms and gigacalories is 0.251996 gigacalories per

dekatherm. The standard Btu is the International Btu, which is also

called the Btu (IT); the standard joule is the joule specified in the

SI system of units. The International Btu is specified for use in

the gas measurement standards of the American Gas Association, the

American Petroleum Institute, the Gas Processors Association and the

American Society for Testing Materials. For non-commercial purposes,

these associations note that the exact conversion factor is

1.05505585262 Gigajoules per Dekatherm.
