GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (continued)
2.3 Heating Value: Shipper shall not be required to accept
natural gas having a heating value of less than 967 Btu per
2.4 Objectional Matter: The gas delivered:
(a) Shall be commercially free from particulates or other
solid or liquid matter which might interfere with its
merchantability or cause injury to or interference
with proper operation of the lines, regulations,
meters and other equipment of Shipper.
(b) Shall contain less than one grain of hydrogen sulfide
per one hundred (100) cubic feet of gas.
(c) Shall not contain more than twenty (20) grains of
total sulfur per one hundred (100) cubic feet.
3. MEASUREMENT AND SCHEDULING OF RECEIPTS AND DELIVERIES
3.1 Unit of Measurement: The transportation unit of gas
received and delivered by Transporter shall be a dekatherm.
3.2 Determination of volume and total heating value: The
volume and the total heating value of gas received and
delivered by Transporter shall be determined as follows:
(a) The unit of volume, for the purpose of measurement,
shall be one (1) cubic foot.
(b) The total heating value of the gas per cubic foot
shall be determined for any day or month by taking the
average of the heating values as recorded each day by
a calorimeter or as determined by chromatographic
analysis of a sample of gas collected daily or any
other method mutually agreed upon.
(c) Dekatherms delivered shall be determined by
multiplying the Mcf delivered by the ratio of the Btu
per cubic foot delivered to 1,000. For the purposes
of this determination the specific gravity and
heating value shall be determined at approximately
the same time.
(d) The temperature of the gas passing through the meters
shall be determined for any day by the continuous use
of a recording thermometer so installed that it may
