base shall be 1 cubic foot of gas at a pressure base of 14.73

pounds per square inch absolute, at a temperature base of 60

degrees Fahrenheit, and without adjustment for water vapor.


The cutoff for closing measurement is five Business Days after the

business Month (NAESB WGQ Standard 2.3.7). Measurement data that

is missing or late at the cutoff is to be estimated. (Estimate

missing or late measurement data and treat actual as prior period

adjustment, with the measuring party to provide the

estimate.)(NAESB WGQ Standard 2.3.13) For treatment of measurement

prior period adjustments, treat the adjustment by taking it back to

the production Month. A meter adjustment becomes a prior period

adjustment after the fifth Business Day following the business

Month (NAESB WGQ Standard 2.3.11). For reporting measurement prior

period adjustments, report it with the restated line item with the

by this standard (NAESB WGQ Standard 2.3.14). This 3-Month

rebuttal period shall begin with the interested party issuing a

written notification that a measurement dispute exists. These

disputes will apply to measurement errors that involve quantities

audited by Transporter.
