GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

11. MEASUREMENT

 

11.1 The unit of volume for the purpose of measurement and the determination

of total heating value of all quantities of Gas received, injected,

withdrawn, stored, wheeled, parked, loaned or delivered on Operator's

Facility shall be one (1) cubic foot of Gas at the base temperature of

sixty degrees Fahrenheit (60 degrees F) and at the absolute pressure of

fourteen and seventy-three hundredths (14.73) pounds per square inch and

dry. 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 of

volume. Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is agreed that, for all

purposes, the Btu content of the gas volumes received and delivered by

Operator hereunder shall be measured on a "dry" basis rather than a

fully saturated or "wet" basis. For Gas volume reported in cubic meters,

the standard conditions are one hundred one and three hundred

twenty-five ten thousandths (101.325) kilopascals (kPa), 15 degrees

Celsius (C), and dry.

 

11.2 Operator 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 Operator or its

agent.

 

11.3 The unit of Gas received, injected, withdrawn, stored, wheeled, parked,

loaned or delivered shall be measured as one million (1,000,000) Btu's,

as defined in Section 1 (Definitions) of these General Terms and

Conditions. The quantity of Btu's received, injected, withdrawn, stored,

wheeled, parked, loaned or delivered shall be determined by multiplying

the number of cubic feet of Gas determined pursuant to Section 11.1

herein by the total heating value of such Gas in Btu's per cubic feet,

rounded to not less than six (6) decimal places and by dividing the

resulting product by one million (1,000,000), as such heating value is

determined from time to time.
