GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (continued)
properly record the temperature of the gas flowing
through the meters. The arithmetic average of the
temperature(s) recorded shall be used in computing
(e) The specific gravity of the gas delivered shall be
determined by the use of a recording gravitometer,
which shall be checked at least once each month, or
any other method mutually agreed upon.
(f) The deviation of the natural gas from Boyle's Law
shall be determined by the use of the tables of
formulae published by the American Gas Association
Par Research Project NX-19 corrected for carbon
dioxide and nitrogen, or any superseding applicable
tables published by the American Gas Association, or
any method or methods mutually agreed upon.
Determinations of the molecular percentage of N2 and
CO2 in the gas shall be made within thirty (30) days
after commencement of deliveries and at least
quarterly thereafter. The molecular percentage of N2
and CO2 thus determined will be used to determine the
supercompressibility factors during the ensuing
period, with corrections for specific gravity,
temperature and pressure. For the purpose of this
subparagraph, the results of the deviation tests of
the upstream pipeline delivering natural gas to
Transporter shall be accepted.
3.3 Determination of Receipts and Deliveries - For purposes of
determining the quantities of gas received at any Receipt
Point(s) and delivered at any Delivery Point(s),
Transporter will enter into an Operational Balancing
Agreement(s) ("OBA"), with any party that operates natural
gas facilities which interconnect with Transporter's
system ("OBA Party").
(a) (1) Allocation of Receipts - Unless prohibited by
applicable law or regulation, the quantities of
natural gas received by Transporter at any
Receipt Point(s) shall be allocated among
Shippers and services in accordance with
allocation procedures contained in the OBA
agreed to by Transporter and the upstream
pipeline serving that Receipt Point.
