GENERAL TRANSPORTATION TERMS AND CONDITIONS
3.3 Determination of Gross Heating Value and Component Analysis
party questions such results within a period of sixty (60) days following
the determination thereof, then such results shall be deemed conclusive
and binding upon the parties hereto. Btu measuring equipment shall be
installed at a location or locations where the gross heating value of the
gas received or delivered hereunder may be reasonably determined.
3.4 Failure to Meet Specifications. Transporter or Shipper shall have
the right, exercisable by the giving of written or oral notice to the
other party, to require the remedy of any failure to deliver or redeliver
gas in accordance with the quality specifications set forth in Sections
3.1 and 3.2. In the event gas delivered by either party fails to conform
to such specifications, the receiving party may refuse to accept all or
any portion of such gas.
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 at a base temperature of 60øF. and at
a base pressure of 14.73 p.s.i.a. Such measured volumes, converted to
Mcf, shall be multiplied by their gross heating value per cubic foot and
divided by 1,000 to determine MMBtu's received and delivered hereunder.
The unit of volume for the purpose of balancing total receipts and
deliveries of gas hereunder shall be one MMBtu.
4.2 Computation of Volume. The volumes of gas measured hereunder shall
be computed in accordance with specifications prescribed by the American
Gas Association, applied in a practical and appropriate manner. The
absolute atmospheric pressure used for volume calculations shall be the
average atmospheric pressure determined by calculations based on the
actual elevation above sea level of the meter at the place of measurement.
