Abstract: The commodity Columbia Gas Transmission Corporation buys and sells is energy-energy in the form of natural gas. When the energy content of natural gas is essentially constant, volume alone serves as an adequate index of the amount of energy delivered. In fact, most pipeline-quality gas from traditional historic sources has a fairly constant energy content. But now, gas from new non-historic sources can have a significantly different energy content per unit volume. To obtain an appropriate index for valuing gas from these sources, quality as well as quantity must be taken into account. Energy measurement is the term used to indicate a basis of measurement which accounts for both variables.
