14.1 Determination of Quantity.


The quantity of gas received and delivered by Pipeline for

Customer's account hereunder shall be measured according to

Boyle's and Charles' Laws for the measurement of gas under

varying pressures and temperatures with deviations

therefrom as provided in Section 14.9 below and shall be

determined as follows:


(a) The unit of measurement for the purpose of service

under any of Pipeline's rate schedules shall be one

(1) Dth. The number of Dths delivered shall be

determined by multiplying the number of Cubic Feet of

gas received or delivered, measured on the measurement

basis hereinafter specified, by the Total Heating

Value of such gas, in Dekatherms per Cubic Foot, as

defined in Section 1 of the GT&C, and by dividing the

product by 1 million (1,000,000.00).


(b) The unit of quantity for the purpose of measurement

shall be 1 Cubic Foot of gas at a temperature of 60o

Fahrenheit, at a pressure of thirty-three hundredths

pounds per square inch (0.33 PSI) gauge and an

atmospheric pressure of 14.4 PSI, resulting in an

absolute pressure of 14.73 pounds per square inch.


(c) The unit of weight for the purpose of measurement

shall be one (1) pound mass of gas.


(d) The average absolute atmospheric pressure shall be

assumed to be 14.4 pounds per square inch.
