therefrom as provided in Section 14.9 below and shall be
determined as follows:
(a) The unit of measurement for the purpose of service
under any of Pipeline's rate schedules shall be one
(1) Dth. The number of Dths delivered shall be
determined by multiplying the number of Cubic Feet of
gas received or delivered, measured on the measurement
basis hereinafter specified, by the Total Heating

defined in Section 1 of the GT&C, and by dividing the
product by 1 million (1,000,000.00).
(b) The unit of quantity for the purpose of measurement
shall be 1 Cubic Foot of gas at a temperature of 60o
Fahrenheit, at a pressure of thirty-three hundredths
pounds per square inch (0.33 PSI) gauge and an
atmospheric pressure of 14.4 PSI, resulting in an
absolute pressure of 14.73 pounds per square inch.
