4.4 Quality Tests. (Continued)


(b) Specification for Tests. Transporter will determine the

Total Heating Value of Gas and its component analysis at

least once each Month in accordance with the Gas Measurement

Committee Report No. 3 prepared by the Gas Measurement

Committee of the American Gas Association, dated September

1985 or any subsequent revisions (AGA-3). Such

determination will be made using either an on-line

chromatograph or by chromatographic analysis of a

representative sample of Gas taken with a continuous flow

proportional sampler. Chromatography will be performed in

accordance with Gas Processors Association (GPA)

publications 2261-86 and 2286-86 or any subsequent

revisions. The values of the physical constants for the Gas

components will be determined by the use of the physical

constants listed in Table 5 of AGA-3. For components of the

Gas not listed in said Table 5, GPA publication 2145-88 or

any subsequent revision will be used.


(c) Non-Hydrocarbon Tests. Tests will be made to determine the

total sulfur, hydrogen sulfide, mercaptans, carbon dioxide,

nitrogen and oxygen content of the Gas, and the hydrocarbon

dew point and water vapor content of such Gas by approved

standard methods in general use in the gas industry. Tests

will be made frequently enough to assure that the Gas

continuously conforms to the quality requirements.


4.5 Failure to Conform.


(a) If the Gas offered for Transportation by Shipper will fail

at any time to conform to any of the specifications set

forth in Section 4.2, then Transporter will have the right,

upon written (including by telecopy) or oral notice to

Shipper, to immediately refuse to accept all or any portion

of such Gas.
