3.1 Unit of Volume:


The unit of volume shall be a cubic foot.


3.2 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. The measurement of gas volumes shall be adjusted

for deviation from Boyle's Law in accordance with generally

accepted engineering practice. The factor used to correct

to the pressure base of 14.73 pounds per square inch

absolute shall be stated to at least the sixth decimal



(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 hydrocarbons fluids, AGA Report No. 3 - ANSI/API

2530, as revised September 1985, and as such report may

hereafter be further revised (i.e. AGA Report No. 3, 1992

Edition and AGA Report No. 8). Exact measurements of inside

diameters of meter tubes shall be obtained by means of

micrometer to the nearest one-thousandth inch. Said volumes

shall be corrected for flowing temperature and specific

gravity in accordance with the provisions of paragraph (c)

and (d) below.


(c) The flowing temperature of the gas shall be determined for

the purpose of measured volume correction. Volume shall be

corrected for each degree of variation in the flowing

temperature from 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The flowing

temperature will be measured by the continuous use of
