GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

 

5. MEASUREMENT AND MEASUREMENT EQUIPMENT (Cont'd.)

 

 

5.2 (a) The volume of Gas delivered hereunder at each Point of Receipt

and Point of Delivery shall be calculated by means of an

electronic flow computer located at, or by the processing of

meter charts recorded at, each Point of Receipt or each Point

of Delivery, in either case in the following manner:

 

(i) When the measuring equipment is an orifice meter, the

flow of Gas through the meter shall be computed in the

manner recommended In AGA Report No. 3, properly using

all factors set forth therein.

 

(ii) When the measuring equipment is a turbine meter, the

volume of Gas delivered through the meter shall be

computed in the manner recommended in AGA Report No. 7,

properly using all factors set forth therein.

 

(iii) When the measuring equipment is a positive displacement

meter, the volume of Gas delivered through the meter

shall be computed by properly applying, to the volume

delivered at flowing gas pressures and temperatures,

correction factors for (1) absolute static pressure, (2)

flowing Gas temperature, and (3) compressibility ratio.

 

(b) The volume of Gas delivered hereunder shall be computed using

the standards and factors determined as follows:

 

(i) The unit of volume for the purpose of measurement shall

be an Mcf of sixty (60) degrees Fahrenheit and a

pressure of 14.73 pounds per square inch absolute. For

the purpose of determination of equivalent quantities

hereunder, the dekatherm equivalent of such unit of

volume shall be determined by multiplying each such unit

of volume by the total heating content of the Gas

delivered hereunder (adjusted to a common temperature

and pressure base) and by dividing the result by one

thousand (1,000).

 

(ii) The average absolute atmospheric (barometric) pressure

at each Point of Receipt and each Point of Delivery

shall be assumed to be fourteen and four-tenth (14.4)

pounds per square inch, irrespective of the actual
