A little imprecision in the nomenclature, but it all should
mean the same thing.
1 part in 10E12 is the same as saying 1 part per 10E12. It is
1/[10E12], or 1.0 x 10E-12

That would be 2 parts per 10E-12, which would be 2/[10E-12], a
very big number!
I am sure that the author of that snippet actually meant
2 parts per 10E12, or 2 x 10E-12.
Sort of mixing your metaphors
