meter shall be computed by properly applying, to the volume

delivered at flowing Gas pressures and temperatures,

correction factors for (i) absolute static pressure, (ii)

flowing Gas temperature and (iii) compressibility ratio.


14.3 The volume of Gas injected or withdrawn hereunder

shall be computed using the standards and factors determined

as follows:


(1) The unit of volume for the purpose of

measurement shall be one thousand cubic feet of Gas at a

temperature of 60 degrees Fahrenheit and a pressure of 14.73

psia and dry. (Standardize the reporting basis for Btu as

14.73 dry psia and 60 degrees F (101.325 kPa and 15 degrees

C and dry). Standardize the reporting basis for gigacalorie

as 1.035646 Kg/cm2 and 15.6 degrees C and dry. Standardize

the reporting basis for gas volumes as cubic foot at

standard conditions of 14.73 psia, 60 degrees, F and dry.

For gas volumes reported in cubic meters, the standard

conditions are 101.325 kPa, 15 degrees C, and dry.) The

Decatherm equivalent of such unit of volume shall be

determined by multiplying each unit of volume by the total

heating value per cubic foot of the Gas delivered hereunder

(adjusted to a common temperature and pressure base) and by

dividing the result by 1,000.


(2) The average absolute atmospheric (barometric)

pressure at the Point of Receipt or Delivery shall be

assumed to be equal to 14.4 pounds per square inch.


(3) The flowing temperature of the Gas shall be

determined by means of an instrument of standard manufacture

accepted in the industry for this purpose.


(4) The supercompressibility factor used in

computing the volume of Gas delivered through an orifice

meter shall be determined in a manner which yields results

consistent with the results produced by the procedures

presented in the American Gas Association Transmission

Measurement Committee Report No. 8 entitled "Compressibility

and Supercompressibility for Natural Gas and Other

Hydrocarbon Gases."


14.4 The specific gravity of the Gas used in computing

the volume of Gas delivered through a meter shall be

determined by one of the following methods:
