8. Gas Measurement


8.1 General

The volumes of natural gas and the quantities of energy

received or delivered through a meter or meters shall be

determined in accordance with the provisions set forth in

this Section.


8.2 Measurement Unit

The Measurement Unit shall be one Dekatherm of natural gas

and shall be calculated by multiplying the volume delivered

in Mcf by a fraction, the numerator of which is the Heating

Value and the denominator of which is 1,000.


8.3 Volumetric Measurement Base

The volumetric measurement base shall be one cubic foot of

natural gas at a pressure base of fourteen and seventy-three

one-hundredths (14.73) pounds per square inch absolute, a

temperature base of sixty (60) degrees Fahrenheit (519.67 R

Absolute), and without adjustment for water vapor content.


8.4 Atmospheric Pressure

The average absolute atmospheric (barometric) pressure shall

be assumed to be fourteen and four-tenths (14.4) pounds per

square inch, irrespective of actual elevation or location of

the delivery point above sea level or variations in actual

barometric pressure from time to time.


8.5 Temperature

The temperature of the natural gas shall be determined at

Transporter's option:



where Electronic Measurement equipment is provided,


(i) by continuous application of instantaneous temperature

measurements from one or more of the meters at a

measuring station, or by contemporaneous application of

the arithmetic or other average of the temperature Record

from one or more of the meters for the time during which

gas is flowing;



where Electronic Measurement equipment is not provided,


(i) where an instrument which measures and records the
