GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
(g) DUST, GUM AND SOLID MATTER
The gas shall be commercially free of dust, gum,
gum-forming constituents and other solid matter.
(h) HEATING VALUE
The gas delivered shall contain a daily, monthly
and yearly average heating content of not less than nine hundred fifty
(950) Btus per cubic foot. In addition, Natural may, from time to time,
as operationally necessary, establish and post on the Informational
Postings portion of its Interactive Website an upper Btu/cf limit and/or
a limit on the dewpoint for receipts on specified segments or other
specified locations on its system to prevent hydrocarbon fallout,
consistent with Section 26.1(f) hereof, or to assure that gas will be
accepted for delivery into interconnects with interstate pipelines,
intrastate pipelines, end-users or directly connected local distribution
companies. Natural will include in such posting the anticipated duration
of the limitation. Points with an actual flow of 100 Dth/d or less will
be exempt from the limitation in any such posting. Natural will provide
as much prior notice as reasonably practicable and will attempt to
provide in the posting at least two (2) Business Days' prior notice
before the limitation becomes effective. If prior notice of at least two
(2) Business Days is not practicable, Natural will explain the reason in
the posting why it was unable to give such prior notice. Where the
posting includes a dewpoint limitation, Natural will, upon request,
provide current information regarding the dewpoint at any point of
receipt into Natural's system affected by the posting to the operator of
that point or any producer, purchaser, supply aggregator or Shipper with
gas being tendered at that point.
The gas shall not be delivered at a temperature of
less than forty degrees Fahrenheit (40 F.) or more than one hundred
twenty degrees Fahrenheit (120 F.).
The nitrogen content shall not exceed three percent
(3%) by volume.
The gas shall contain no carbon monoxide, halogens,
or unsaturated hydrocarbons, and no more than four hundred parts per
million (400 ppm) of hydrogen.
