4.1 Quantities of Gas received or delivered hereunder at each

Point of Receipt and Point of Delivery shall be determined

by either of Panhandle or Shipper responsible for

measurement at such point, as listed on Exhibit A of the

Service Agreement.


The heating value, specific gravity and super-

compressibility (Mol percent of nitrogen and carbon

dioxide) values of the Gas shall be determined at the

beginning of receipt and delivery and annually thereafter,

or at such frequency as may be found acceptable in

practice. Water content shall be determined at intervals

as found necessary in practice. Shipper may be required

to test, at the receipt meter, for bacteria or bacterial

agents if Panhandle so requires. Tests for bacteria or

bacterial agents shall be conducted on samples taken from

the meter run or other appurtenant piping using American

Petroleum Institute (API) test method API-RP38 or any

other test method acceptable to Panhandle which is

currently available or may become available at any time

during the term of the Transportation Agreement.


4.2 Such measurement, both volumetric and thermal, shall be at

a temperature of 60ø Fahrenheit and at a pressure of 14.73

psia dry, and on the basis of the methods prescribed and

published by the American Gas Association in conjunction

with the ANSI/API 2530 Report as currently available and

in accordance with any subsequent amendments thereof

accepted and agreed upon between the parties if orifice

meters are used. If positive displacement or turbine

meters are used, measurement shall be performed in

accordance with AGA-7 as currently available and with any

subsequent amendments thereof accepted and agreed upon

between the parties. Btu content shall be determined by

taking the arithmetic average of the heating value as

recorded by recording calorimeter or other method of

determination generally accepted in the industry. Flowing

temperature shall be determined by a recording thermometer

or EGM.
