§ 473. Determination of factors by Commission--Determination and report of volumes
(a) It shall be the duty of the Corporation Commission and said Commission is hereby authorized, empowered and directed to determine the average temperature of gas, as produced in each oil and gas field in Oklahoma, and to determine the other variable factors necessary to calculate the metered volumes in accordance with the Ideal Gas Laws and the variable factors to correct for deviation from the Ideal Gas Laws in each of the oil and gas fields in the State of Oklahoma. Upon request of any interested party the Corporation Commission shall give notice and hold a public hearing before making such determination. Promptly upon such determinations the Corporation Commission shall make and publish such findings and promulgate such reasonable field rules as may be necessary to effectuate the provisions of this act.1
Any person, association of persons, or corporations shall be permitted to use the findings and field rules of the Commission for all purposes under this act, but if such findings or field rules are not so used in determining volumes under this act, the volumes so otherwise determined shall be corrected to the basis of the “standard cubic foot of gas” as defined in Section 2 of this act.2
(b) Any person required to report volumes of gas under the laws of this state, shall report such volumes in number of standard cubic feet calculated and determined under the provisions of this act.
