(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.
4.1 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.
