14.3 Unit of Measurement and Metering Base.

The standard reporting basis for Btu is 14.73 psia and

60 degrees F (101.325 kPa, and 15 degrees C, and dry). The

standard reporting basis for gigacalorie is 1.035646 Kg/cm2

and 15.6 degrees C and dry.The standard reporting basis for

gas volumes is cubic foot at standard conditions of 14.73

psia, and 60 degrees F, and dry. For gas volumes reported

in cubic meters, the standard conditions are 101.325 kPa and

15 degrees C, and dry (NAESB 2.3.9)
