GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1.1 The term "Associated Liquids" shall mean condensate (without free water)
produced in conjunction with the production of Gas to be transported in the
System and liquefiable hydrocarbons contained in such Gas but not including oil.
1.2 The term "Btu" shall mean one (1) British thermal unit, the amount of heat
required to raise the temperature of one (1) pound of water one (1) degree
Fahrenheit at sixty (60) degrees Fahrenheit. (Btu is measured on a dry basis
at 14.73 psia.)
1.3 The term "Maximum Daily Quantity" shall mean the aggregate of the Maximum Daily
Volumes of Gas, expressed in Dth per day, which U-TOS, subject to Rate Schedules
FT and IT and the terms and provisions of the Transportation Agreement executed
by U-TOS and the Shipper, has agreed to accept for transportation for the
account of Shipper from the Points of Receipt as set forth in Exhibit A of the

expressed in Dth, received by U-TOS for the account of shipper at the Points of
Receipt identified in Exhibit A of the Transportation Agreement during any given
period of time, (a) reduced by (i) Shipper's Share of compressor fuel and the
Unaccounted For Gas determined by multiplying Shipper's nominated volume for
that same period of time by the ratio of U-TOS' total system compressor fuel and
Unaccounted For Gas volume during the three consecutive calendar months that
immediately precede the calendar month before such period of time to U-TOS'
total system received volume during the same three calendar months (it being the
intent that the ratio used best projects U-TOS' actual compressor fuel and
Unaccounted For Gas volume), and (ii) any Gas vented as provided for in Section
7.13 during the same period of time and (b) adjusted for any variations in Btu
content, it being the intent of the parties that the volumes of Gas redelivered

above. In the event the ownership of Gas lost as a result of an event of force
majeure can be reasonably identified, the volume thereof shall be charged to the
owner or owners so identified. With respect to adjustment (a)(i) above, where
the given period of time under consideration is greater than one calendar month,
each calendar month shall be considered discretely such that the nomination for
each calendar month, or part thereof, shall be multiplied by the ratio derived
pursuant to (a)(i) for each corresponding calendar month.
1.7 The term "F.E.R.C." or "Commission" shall mean the Federal Energy Regulatory
Commission or any Commission, agency or other federal governmental body
succeeding substantially to the powers of such Commission.
