3.4

(a) Should any gas received for SHIPPER'S account by COMPANY fail to conform to

any of the specifications provided for in this Section 3 when tendered for

receipt into COMPANY'S system, COMPANY shall notify SHIPPER of any such

failure and may at its option suspend all or a portion of the receipt of

any such gas, and COMPANY shall be relieved of any of its applicable

obligations for the duration of such time as the gas does not meet such

specifications. At SHIPPER's request in writing following such notice,

COMPANY shall take measures reasonably available to it to mitigate the non-

conformance, and SHIPPER shall indemnify COMPANY for reasonable and

verifiable costs and liabilities of nonconformance and mitigation. If

COMPANY proceeds, without SHIPPER'S written request, to continue to accept

non-conforming gas, SHIPPER shall not be responsible for any damages.

 

(b) Should any gas delivered by COMPANY to SHIPPER fail at any time to conform

to the requirements of this Section 3, SHIPPER shall notify COMPANY of any

such failure, and SHIPPER, unless gas received for its account is non-

conforming or contributing to non-conformance, shall be relieved of any of

its applicable obligations for the duration of such time as the gas does

not meet such specifications. COMPANY shall indemnify SHIPPER for

reasonable and verifiable costs SHIPPER incurs due to the nonconformance.

 

4. MEASUREMENT

 

4.1 Unit of Volume:

 

The unit of volume shall be a cubic foot.

 

4.2 Measurement of Volume:

 

(a) When gas is delivered at a pressure different from 14.73 pounds per square

inch absolute, then for the purpose of measurement hereunder, such volumes

of gas shall be corrected to a pressure of 14.73 pounds per square inch

absolute. It is assumed that the atmospheric pressure is 14.4 pounds per

square inch or such other pressure as agreed upon by COMPANY and SHIPPER.

The measurement of gas volumes shall be adjusted for deviation from Boyle's

Law in accordance with generally accepted engineering practice; provided,

however, that where gas is delivered through positive displacement meters

at a pressure not in excess of 20 pounds per square inch gauge, the gas may

be assumed to obey Boyle's law.

 

(b) Where orifice meters are used, volumes delivered shall be computed in

accordance with formulae, tables and methods prescribed in Orifice Metering

of Natural Gas and Other Related Hydrocarbon Fluids, AGA Report No. 3 --

ANSI/API 2530, as revised September 1985, and as such report may hereafter

be further revised. Exact measurements of inside diameters of meter tubes

shall be obtained by means of a micrometer to the nearest one-thousandth

inch. The volumes shall be corrected for flowing temperature and specific

gravity in accordance with the provisions of paragraphs (c) and (d) below.
