2.1 General - The gas delivered to Shipper by Transporter

more than 20 grains of total sulphur per cubic foot at
the pressure and temperature bases provided in Section 3
2.2 Specific Gravity - The gas delivered by Transporter to
Shipper shall not have a specific gravity greater than
0.77 or less than 0.625 when compared with dry air at the
same temperature and pressure, air being taken as 1.0;
provided, however, the specific gravity may vary beyond
such limits if approved by Shipper.
2.3 Heating Value - Transporter warrants that all gas
