permit it to deliver gas into downstream interstate

pipelines with a total carbon dioxide content that

does not exceed two percent (2%) by volume.

 

(d) Liquids. The gas shall be free of water and

hydrocarbons in liquid form at the temperature and

pressure at which the gas is received and delivered.

 

(e) Hydrogen Sulfide. The gas shall not contain more than

one-fourth (1/4) grains of hydrogen sulfide per one-

hundred (100) Cubic Feet.
