GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

13. MEASUREMENT

 

13.1 The unit of volume for measurement of all quantities of Gas Stored

by Saltville or delivered to and received from storage hereunder

shall be one (1) Cubic Foot of Gas at the base temperature of

sixty degrees Fahrenheit (60 degrees F) and at an absolute

pressure of fourteen and seventy-three hundredths (14.73) pounds

per square inch. All fundamental constants, observations,

records, and procedures involved in determining and/or verifying

the quantity and other characteristics of Gas delivered hereunder

shall, unless otherwise specified herein, be in accordance with

the standards prescribed in Report No. 3 of the American Gas

Association, as now and from time to time amended or supplemented.

All measurements of Gas shall be determined by calculation into

terms of such unit. All quantities given herein, unless expressly

stated otherwise, are terms of such unit. Notwithstanding the

foregoing, it is agreed that, for all purposes, the Btu content of

the Gas received and delivered by Saltville hereunder shall be

measured on a "dry" basis rather than a fully saturated or "wet"

basis. Standardize the reporting basis for Gas volumes as cubic

foot at standard conditions of 14.73 psia, 60 degrees F and dry.

For Gas volumes reported in cubic meters, the standard conditions

are 101.325 kPa, 15 degrees C, and dry.

 

13.2 Saltville shall install, maintain and operate, or cause to be

installed, maintained and operated, the measurement facilities

required hereunder. Said measurement facilities shall be so

equipped with orifice meters, recording gauges, or other types of

meters of standard make and design commonly acceptable in the

industry, as to accomplish the accurate measurement of Gas

delivered hereunder. The retrieval of data, calibrating and

adjustment of meters shall be done by Saltville or its agent.

 

13.3 In the event volumes measured through Saltville's system shall

result in either gains or losses then Saltville shall allocate any

such gains or losses to all parties having Gas in Saltville's

facilities in proportion to the quantity of Gas of each such part

in Saltville's facilities at the time of any such gain or losses

unless such gain or losses are the result of Saltville's gross

negligence or willful misconduct.
