6.2 Measurement Procedures. (Continued)


Shipper. When used, orifice meters shall be operated at a nominal

Beta ratio of approximately 0.5, but in no event shall the Beta

ratio be less than 0.4 nor greater than 0.6. Transporter shall

provide and use multiple meters when the operational range of Gas

flow rates would necessitate Beta ratios outside of such limits.

When turbine meters are used, they shall be installed and operated

in accordance with American Gas Association Transmission

Measurement Committee Report No. 7.


All meters shall be equipped with electronic flow computers, and

all orifice meter tubes shall be equipped with straightening

vanes. Transporter shall make available, at no expense to

Shipper, access to electronic signals from all electronic

measuring and metering devices installed on Transporter's system

but shall not be required to install, maintain or pay for any

additional facilities. If facilities are required in order to

access electronic signals, they shall be installed at Shipper's



6.2.2 Deviation from Ideal Gas Laws. Correction shall be made for

deviation of the Gas from Boyle's Law at the pressure and

temperature at which the Gas is metered. Deviation of Gas from

Boyle's Law shall be computed in accordance with the American Gas

Association Bulletin Number 8 and any modifications and amendments

thereto applied in a practical manner.


6.2.3 Specific Gravity. The specific gravity of Gas flowing through the

meters shall be determined by means of a recording gravitometer or

gas chromatograph located at the delivering party's measuring

station or at any other point on said party's system where there

will be no commingling thereafter of Gas with that delivered to

the receiving party, and the arithmetic average specific gravity

each Day at such point shall be used in computing deliveries of

Gas during such Day at such point.
