the same Gas that was delivered to Freebird by

or on behalf of Shipperbut shall be obligated to deliver only such quantity

of Gas as the Shipper is entitled to receive from Freebird in accordance with

this Gas Tariff and the relevant Service Agreement. Without limiting

Freebird’s obligation set forth in the immediately preceding sentence,

Freebird shall be entitled to use all quantities of Gas delivered to the

Storage Facility for any and all purposes, including, without limitation, for

delivery or transfer thereof to other Shippers to satisfy Freebird’s

obligations under Service Agreements with such other Shippers. Shipper

acknowledges that the Service Agreements, nominations, invoices or any other

document issued pursuant to the Service Agreements are non-negotiable

instruments under Ala. Code § 7-7-104(b).




12.1 The quantity of Gas received and delivered hereunder shall be measured

(i) in accordance with the applicable Transporter’s pipeline tariff, if the

Transporter is the party responsible for custody transfer at the applicable

Point of Injection/Withdrawal, or (ii) in accordance with Sections 12.2 – 12.3

below, if Freebird is the party responsible for custody transfer at the

applicable Point of Injection/Withdrawal.


12.2 The service unit of Gas scheduled, received, or delivered by Freebird

under this Gas Tariff shall be a Dekatherm. Dekatherms will be determined by

multiplying the Mcf volume by the ratio of the heating value per cubic foot to

1,000. The unit of volume for measurement of all quantities of Gas shall be

one (1) cubic foot of Gas at the base temperature of sixty degrees Fahrenheit

(60 degrees F) and at an absolute pressure of fourteen and seventy-three

hundredths (14.73) pounds per square inch and dry. One thousand (1,000) cubic

feet shall be denoted as 1 Mcf. All fundamental constants, observations,

records, and procedures involved in determining and/or verifying the quantity

and other characteristics of Gas delivered hereunder shall, unless otherwise

specified herein, be in accordance with the standards prescribed in Report No.

9 of the American Gas Association ("AGA"), as now in effect and from time to

time amended or supplemented. All measurements of Gas shall be determined by

calculation into terms of such unit. Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is

agreed that, for all purposes, the Btu content of the Gas received and

delivered by Freebird hereunder shall be measured on a "dry" basis rather than

a fully saturated or "wet" basis. For Gas volumes reported in cubic meters,

the standard conditions are 101.325 kPa, 15 degrees C, and dry. If positive

displacement, ultra sonic flow or turbine meters are used, measurement shall

be performed in accordance with AGA 9 as currently available and with any

subsequent amendments thereof accepted by Freebird in its reasonable judgment.

The temperature of the Gas flowing through a meter station shall be obtained

by the use of a flow computer. The temperature of the Gas during the

measurement period shall be used in computing the quantities of Gas delivered

during such period. The heating value and the specific gravity shall be

determined by on-line C6+ chromatographic analysis of the Gas stream. The

values of the physical constants for the Gas compounds and the procedure for

determining the gross heating value and/or the specific gravity of the Gas

from them shall be as set forth in the referenced AGA Report No. 9.


12.3 Freebird shall, if necessary, install, maintain and operate, or cause

to be installed, maintained and operated, the measurement facilities required

hereunder. Said measurement facilities shall be so equipped with ultrasonic

flow meters, recording gauges, or other types of meters of standard make and

design commonly acceptable in the industry, as to accomplish the accurate

measurement of Gas received and delivered hereunder. The retrieval of data,

calibrating and adjustment of meters shall be done by Freebird or its agent.

The accuracy of the measuring equipment, shall be verified at reasonable

intervals but
