3. QUALITY

 

3.1 The gas to be received by COMPANY for SHIPPER'S account must upon

delivery by SHIPPER to COMPANY:

 

(a) be free of objectionable liquids and solids and be

commercially free from dust, gums, gum-forming constituents,

or other liquid or solid matter which might become separated

from the gas in the course of transportation through the

pipeline or which could cause inaccurate measurement;

 

(b) not contain more than 200 grains of total sulphur or 3

grains of hydrogen sulphide per Mcf;

 

(c) not contain more than 2% by volume of carbon dioxide, 3% of

nitrogen, and 0.25% of oxygen nor more than a combined total

of inert gases of 4% by volume;

 

(d) not contain more than 1.5% by volume of butane and higher

(C4+) hydrocarbons;

 

(e) not contain more than 7 pounds of water per 1,000 Mcf;

 

(f) have a temperature of not more than 120 degrees Fahrenheit,

nor less than the greater of 35 degrees Fahrenheit or 5

degrees Fahrenheit above the hydrocarbon dew point ("HDP")

temperature of the gas; and

 

(g) have a Wobbe number of at least 1,300 and no more than 1,400

Btu per cubic foot of dry gas. The Wobbe number of the gas

shall be determined by dividing the gross heating value of

the gas by the square root of the specific gravity of the

gas. The gross heating value of the gas shall be determined

by a mutually acceptable test of one cubic foot of gas at a

temperature of sixty degrees Fahrenheit and at a pressure of

fourteen and seventy-three hundredths (14.73) pounds per

square inch absolute. Tests and calculations for such

determination of composition, heating value, specific

gravity, and Wobbe number shall be conducted for each

Receipt Point as frequently as possible using the equipment

installed at each Receipt Point.

 

3.2 The gas redelivered hereunder will meet the specifications set

forth in Section 3.1 above, except with respect to (a) odorant,

which shall be governed by Section 8.4 herein, and (b) the minimum

temperature set forth in Section 3.1(f) above for any measurement

stations at which COMPANY does not maintain heaters.

 

3.3 Unless otherwise specified herein, SHIPPER'S compliance with the

standards in this Section 3 shall be determined by the most

appropriate among approved standard methods generally in use in

the natural gas industry, as selected by COMPANY in its reasonable

judgment.
