from Shipper for transportation hereunder.
5. Odorization. The gas delivered to or for the account of Shipper at
the Point(s) of Delivery may be odorized by Transporter by use of an odorant
agent of such character as to indicate by a distinctive odor the presence of
gas when deemed desirable or necessary by Transporter or when governmental
authorities having jurisdiction so require. Whenever odorized gas is
delivered, the quality and specifications, as set forth in this Section 5, of
such gas shall be determined prior to the addition of an odorant or with
proper allowance for changes or additions due to such odorant.
6. Delivery Pressure. The delivery pressure for Shipper's Gas at the
Point(s) of Delivery shall be at Transporter's line pressure as it may exist
from time to time but not less than as specified in the executed service
Determination of Volume and Total Heating Value. The volume and the total
heating value of the gas delivered to Transporter at the Receipt Point(s) and
made available to or on behalf of Shipper at the Delivery Point(s) shall be
determined as follows:
1. The unit of gas, for the purpose of measurement, shall be one (1)
2. The volumetric measurement base shall be one (1) cubic foot of dry gas
at a pressure base of fourteen and seventy-three hundredths (14.73) psia and
at a temperature base of sixty degrees (60) Fahrenheit. (Refer to NAESB
3. The total heating value of the gas per cubic foot shall be determined
for any month by taking the weighted average of the heating values as recorded
each day by a calorimeter or chromatograph, or as determined by
chromatographic analysis of a sample of gas collected during the month or any
other method mutually agreed upon by Shipper and Transporter.
4. The Dekatherms delivered shall be determined by multiplying the Mcf
delivered by the ratio of the Btu per cubic foot delivered to 1,000. For
purposes of this determination, The specific gravity and heating value shall
be determined at approximately the same time.
5. The temperature of the gas passing though each meter shall be
determined for any day by the continuous use of a recording thermometer so
installed that it may properly record the temperature of the gas flowing
through each meter. The arithmetical average of the flowing temperature
recorded of each hour shown by the recording thermometer shall be used in
computing gas volumes.
6. The specific gravity of the gas shall be determined by the use of a
recording gravitometer, or by calculation from chromatographic analysis of a
sample of gas collected during the month at the Point of Receipt or Point of
Delivery, which shall be checked at least once each month, or any other method
mutually agreed upon by Shipper and Transporter.
