GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

3. MEASUREMENT

 

3.1 Unit of Measurement. The unit of measurement shall be one cubic foot of

gas and the term "cubic foot of gas," whenever used in WTG Hugoton's Rate

Schedules and these General Terms and Conditions shall mean one cubic foot of

gas at an absolute pressure of 14.73 pounds and a temperature of sixty degrees

Fahrenheit (60 F).

 

3.2 Measurement Factors. The volume of gas delivered as measured by

pipeline pressures shall be corrected to the unit of measurement. Measurement

and determination of volume delivered shall be made in accordance with the

recommendations set forth in the A.G.A. Gas Measurement Committee Report

Number Three latest edition for orifice meters or (the A.G.A. Gas Measurement

Committee Report Number Seven latest edition, for turbine meters or industry

standards for other meters).

 

3.3 Temperature. The temperature of the gas passing through the meters

shall be determined by the use of a continuous recording thermometer so

installed that it will record properly the temperature of the gas flowing

through the meters. The daily temperature, based on the arithmetic average of

the hourly temperature so recorded, shall be used in measurement computation,

provided that, in case of small volume delivery, the installation of a

thermometer may be omitted at the election of WTG Hugoton, and in any such

case, the temperature of the gas for the purpose of measurement shall be

assumed to be sixty degrees Fahrenheit (60 F).

 

3.4 Specific Gravity. The specific gravity of the gas shall be calculated

from chromatographic analysis of a representative gas sample.

 

3.5 Atmospheric Pressure. The normal barometric pressure in pounds per

square inch, carried to one decimal place, for each Point(s) of Delivery,

shall be used as the atmospheric pressure for measurement purposes.

 

3.6 Heating Value. The heating value of the gas delivered shall be

calculated from a chromatographic analysis of a representative gas sample

collected daily during the month, or any other method mutually agreed upon.

Such chromatographs shall be owned, operated and maintained by WTG Hugoton at

representative locations on WTG Hugoton's transmission system, or as agreed

upon. The heating value of the natural gas received by WTG Hugoton from its

various sources of supply and of gas received for transportation will vary.

However, WTG Hugoton will operate its system such that the heating value will

not fall below 950 Btu per cubic foot.
