GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

3. QUALITY (Continued)

 

3.2 Gas Quality at Delivery Point(s). The gas delivered by

Transporter to Shipper at the Delivery Point shall be natural gas

containing a gross heating value of at least 985 Btus. Such gas shall

be commercially free of dust, gums, dirt, impurities and other solid

matter and shall not contain more than one-quarter grain hydrogen

sulfide per one hundred cubic feet as determined by using commercially

available on-line analyses and/or such analytical methods that are

generally accepted in industry practice; provided that Transporter may

install and utilize a recording hydrogen sulfide analyzer to monitor

the gas at points at which it deems such continuous monitoring to be

desirable. The gas to be delivered shall not contain more than twenty

grains of total sulfur per one hundred cubic feet.

 

The gas shall be free of water and hydrocarbons in liquid form at

the temperature and pressure at which the gas is delivered and in no

event shall have a water content in excess of seven pounds in vapor

phase per million cubic feet.

 

3.3 Determination of Gross Heating Value and Component Analysis. The

entity operating the measurement equipment (which may be the Delivering

Pipeline) shall determine the gross heating value of the gas delivered

and its component analysis at reasonable intervals. Such determination

shall be made using either an on-line chromatograph or by chromatographic

analysis of a representative sample of gas taken with a continuous

sampler. Transporter may at its option allow the use of spot samples. If

at any time and for any reason Shipper or Transporter should question the

results of any spot sampling, a redetermination shall be made and the

redetermination mutually acceptable to the parties shall be used;

provided, however, if neither party questions such results within a

period of sixty (60) days following the determination thereof, then

such results shall be deemed conclusive and binding upon the parties.

Btu measuring equipment shall be installed at a location or locations

where the gross heating value of the gas received or delivered

hereunder may be reasonably determined. Transporter may rely on

Delivering Pipeline’s measurements as conclusive.

 

3.4 Failure to Meet Specifications. Transporter or Shipper shall

have the right, exercisable by the giving of written or oral notice to

the other party, to require the remedy of any failure to deliver or

redeliver gas in accordance with the quality specifications set forth

in Sections 3.1 and 3.2. In the event gas delivered by either party

fails to conform to such specifications, as evidenced by the latest

chromatograph analysis derived from an on-line chromatograph or from a

sample taken manually and analyzed by a chromatograph, the receiving

party may refuse to accept all or any portion of such gas.
