4. MEASUREMENT OF GAS

 

4.1 Unit of Volume. The unit of volume for the purpose of

measurement shall be one (1) Cubic Foot of Gas. The

readings and registrations of the measuring equipment

hereinafter provided for and determinations of Total

Heating Value will be computed in terms of such

volumes.

 

4.2 Factors Considered in Computation. To determine the

volume of Gas delivered, required factors such as

pressure, temperature, specific gravity and deviations

from Boyle's Law will be reflected in accordance with

the American Gas Association Bulletin Number 3 and any

modifications and amendments thereto, and applied in a

practical manner.

 

4.3 Determination of Dth Received or Delivered. The number

of Dth received or delivered during any Day at a

Receipt Point or Delivery Point will be determined by

multiplying the number of Cubic Feet of Gas received or

delivered on such Day at such point by the Total

Heating Value for that Day and by dividing the total so

obtained by 1,000,000.

 

4.4 Assumed Atmospheric Pressure. The absolute atmospheric

pressure used for volume calculations will be assumed

to be a specific pressure determined by calculations

based on the actual elevation above sea level at the

site of the meter rounded off to the nearest one

hundredth of a pound.

 

4.5 Installation and Operation. Transporter may install,

maintain and operate, at its expense, at or near each

Receipt or Delivery Point, a measuring station properly

equipped with meters and other necessary measuring

equipment and any related measurement and

interconnection facilities; provided, that Transporter

may require at its option that Shipper bear the expense

of furnishing and installing such equipment in any

instance in which Shipper requests a new or additional

Receipt or Delivery Point for Shipper's convenience.

Unless otherwise mutually agreed upon, such measuring

equipment will be of a type generally accepted in

industry practice by which the volume of Gas received

from and delivered to Shipper will be measured. Where

orifice meters are used they will be installed and

operated in accordance with ANSI/API 2530, September

1985, and any modifications and amendments thereof, and

applied in a practical manner. Where positive

displacement meters, turbine meters, ultrasonic meters,

or other measuring devices are used, they will be

installed and operated in accordance with the then-

current recommendations of the American Gas

Association, where available. Btu measuring equipment

will be installed by Transporter at a location or

locations where the Total Heating Value of the Gas

received and delivered by Transporter can be

satisfactorily determined. Btu measurement may also be

determined by Gas samples.
