GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

----------------------------

 

(a) In the case where an online chromatograph is used,

the results will be applied continuously during calculation. The

average of the hourly heating value during periods of flow each Day

shall be recorded and considered as the heating value of the Gas

delivered to KMLP or Shipper.

 

(b) In the event a continuous Gas sampler is installed,

then the heating value of the composite sample so taken shall be

considered as the heating value of the Gas for the applicable

period. Alternatively, the results may be applied prospectively

beginning on the Day the results become available after agreement by

both parties.

 

(c) If spot samples are taken, the samples shall be run

on the measuring party's chromatograph at another location. The

result of a spot sample shall be applied to Gas deliveries as of the

Day the results are available and for all succeeding Days until a

new sample is taken.

 

(d) All heating value determinations made with a

chromatograph shall use physical gas constants for Gas compounds as

outlined in the GPA Std 2145-00 Rev 1 Table of Physical Constants of

Paraffin Hydrocarbons and other Compounds of Natural Gas and any

subsequent amendments or revisions to such Report to which the

parties may mutually agree. The moisture content of the Gas shall be

determined as often as necessary and practical to determine the

actual heating value of the Gas stream.

 

(e) The calculations (for Btu) shall be based on dry Gas

if the Gas at the measurement points contains less than five (5)

pounds of water per MMcf. If the Gas at the measurement points

contains more than five (5) pounds of water per MMcf, the

appropriate factor determined by KMLP in the exercise of its

reasonable judgment for the actual water vapor content will be

applied to the Btu calculations to correct for this water content.

 

(f) The specific gravity of the Gas flowing through the

meter or meters may be determined by the use of a chromatograph or

by analysis of Gas collected in spot and continuous samplers.

Specific gravity shall be updated whenever the heating value of the

Gas is updated. All specific gravity determinations made with a

chromatograph shall use physical Gas constants for Gas compounds as
