2.1 Unit of Measurement and Basis of Measurement of Gas:


The volumetric measurement base shall be one (1) cubic foot of gas

at an absolute pressure of fourteen and seventy-three-hundredths

(14.73) psia at a temperature of sixty (60) degrees Fahrenheit.

Measurement shall be in accordance with the March, 1978 Revision of

the American National Standard ANSI/API 2530, First Edition,

Orifice Metering of Natural Gas. The data, procedures, reporting

and equipment used to determine the quantity of gas measured shall

be as follows:


(a) Atmospheric Pressure: The assumed atmospheric pressure shall be

twelve and twenty-hundredths (12.20) psia at the Idaho-Nevada

Receipt Point, twelve and fifty-eight-hundredths (12.58) psia

at the Wadsworth Junction Receipt Point, twelve and sixty-five-

hundredths (12.65) psia at the LNG Plant, and as specified in

the executed Service Agreement at the Delivery Point(s).


(b) Flowing Temperature: The temperature of the natural gas flowing

through Paiute's meter stations shall be obtained by the use of

a recording thermometer or using a meter correcting apparatus

correcting to sixty (60) degrees Fahrenheit.


(c) Specific Gravity: The air specific gravity of gas received and

delivered hereunder shall be determined by means of a recording

gravitometer or gas chromatgraphy or other generally accepted

methods of determining specific gravity.


(d) Ownership of Gas Custody Transfer Measuring Equipment: Paiute

shall install, own, maintain and operate at points of delivery

a measuring station properly equipped with the necessary

metering equipment by which the quantity of gas received and

delivered hereunder shall be measured. All installation costs

associated with any new Delivery Point measuring station

facilities which will increase Paiute's capacity to deliver

natural gas will be borne by the affected Shipper.
