6.2 Measurement Procedures. (Continued)


subsequent revision thereof acceptable to Transporter and Shipper.

When used, orifice meters shall be operated at a nominal Beta

ratio of 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. Where positive

displacement meters, turbine meters, ultrasonic meters or other

measuring devices are used, they shall be installed and operated

in accordance with then-current American Gas Association

recommendations, where available.


All meters shall be equipped with electronic flow computers, and

all orifice meters 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

electric signals it shall be at Shipper's expense.


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.
