3.1 The gas delivered to the Receipt and Delivery Points shall be

measured with meters constructed and installed, and whose computations of

quantity are made, consistently with the provisions of API 14.3-AGA Report

No. 3, AGA Report Nos. 8 and 9 or the latest revision thereof as adopted by



3.2 The temperature of the gas shall be determined by a recording

thermometer so installed that it will record the temperature of the gas

flowing through the meters. The average of the record to the nearest 1°

Fahrenheit, obtained while gas is being delivered, shall be the applicable

flowing gas temperature for the period under consideration. For all

measurement of gas required in this Section, the measuring party will

determine the Btu content per cubic foot of gas at a temperature of 60°

Fahrenheit, at an absolute pressure of 14.73 pounds per square inch, either

on a dry basis or with water content included in the analysis composition,

then adjust the result for the water vapor content of the gas (by either the

volume or Btu content method) using an industry accepted practice.


3.3 (a) The Btu content, specific gravity, carbon dioxide, nitrogen

and hydrocarbon content of the gas delivered to the Receipt or Delivery

Points shall be determined by the use of an on-line chromatograph or by a

chromatographic analysis of the gas obtained by a continuous sampler or spot

sampling method. No heating value will be credited for Btus in H2S or other

non-hydrocarbon components. The results of any sample taken with an on-line

chromatograph or continuous sampler shall be applied to the month in which

the sample was taken. The results of any spot sample taken shall be applied

to the month following the sample month and to succeeding months until the

next sample is effective. If spot samples are used, the sampling frequency

will be at least semiannually.


(b) Delivery or Receipt Points with consistent quantities of 15

MMcf per Day or greater will have an on-line gas chromatograph, subject to

adequate site facilities being available, including the availability of

electricity and land to accommodate the necessary equipment. Otherwise, a

continuous gas sampler will be used to determine gas quality for these

Delivery or Receipt Points. Upon mutual agreement by the parties, an

alternate method of sampling may be used.


(c) Delivery or Receipt Points with quantities greater than 1

MMcf per Day but less than 15 MMcf per Day will use a continuous sampling



(d) Delivery or Receipt Points with quantities of 1 MMcf per

Day or less will use, at Transporter's sole option, either a spot sampling

or a continuous sampling technique.
