Section 2




"Measured Quantities" shall mean the product of the corrected

heating value times the measured Mcf at 14.73 psia. The gross

heating value is the number of BTU's produced by the complete

combustion, at constant pressure, of the quantity of Gas which

would occupy a volume of one (1) cubic foot at a temperature of

sixty degrees Fahrenheit (60EF.), if saturated with water vapor

and at a constant pressure of fourteen and seventy-three

hundredths pounds per square inch absolute (14.73 psia) and under

standard gravitational force (acceleration of 980.665 cm per

second) with air of the same temperature and pressure as the Gas

when the products of combustion are cooled to the initial

temperature of the Gas and air and when the water formed by

combustion is condensed to the liquid state.


The gross heating value so determined shall be corrected from the

conditions of testing to that of the actual condition of the Gas

as delivered (including the conversion from saturated to actual

conditions) expressed in BTU's per cubic foot. If the Gas as

delivered contains seven (7) pounds of water vapor or less per

one million (1,000,000) cubic feet, such Gas shall be assumed to

have zero (0) pounds of water per one million (1,000,000) cubic

feet (dry gas). Standardize the reporting basis for BTU as

14.73, and psia, 60 degrees F (101.325 kPA and 15 degrees C, and



"Month" shall mean a period beginning at 9:00 A.M. Central Clock

Time on the first Day of a calendar month and ending at 9:00 A.M.

Central Clock Time on the first Day of the next succeeding

calendar month.


"Natural Gas" or "Gas" shall mean any mixture of hydrocarbons or

of hydrocarbons and non-combustible gases, in a gaseous state,

consisting essentially of methane.
