7.3 Factors Considered in Computation. To determine the Volume of Gas

delivered, required factors such as pressure, temperature, specific

gravity and deviations from Boyle's Law will be reflected in accordance

with the American Gas Association Bulletin Number 3 and any

modifications and amendments thereof, and applied in a practical manner.


7.4 Determination of Dekatherms Received or Delivered. The number of

Dekatherms received or delivered during any Day at a Receipt or Delivery

Point will be determined by multiplying the number of cubic feet of

Natural Gas received or delivered on such Day at such point by the Total

Heating Value for that Day and by dividing the total so obtained by
