GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

MEASUREMENT AND MEASUREMENT EQUIPMENT

 

 

3.6 Accuracy. All installations of measuring equipment applying to or affecting Gas transported

hereunder shall be made in such manner as to permit an accurate determination of the

quantity of Gas and ready verification of the accuracy of measurement. Care shall be

exercised in the installation, maintenance and operation of pressure regulating equipment so

as to prevent any inaccuracy in the determination of the quantity of Gas Received or

Delivered hereunder.

 

3.7 Failure of Meters. In the event a meter is out of service or registering inaccurately, the

quantity of Gas Received or Delivered hereunder shall be determined:

 

A. By using the registration of any check meter or meters installed in accordance with

industry practice, and accurately registering; or, in the absence of A:

 

B. By correcting the error if the percentage of error is ascertainable by calibration test

or mathematical calculation; or, in the absence of both A and B then:

 

C. By estimating the quantity of Gas Received or Delivered during periods under similar

conditions when the meter was registering accurately.

 

3.8 Meter Testing. The accuracy of Pipeline's measuring equipment shall be verified by Pipeline

at reasonable intervals, and, if requested, in the presence of representatives of Customer,

but Pipeline shall not be required to verify the accuracy of such equipment more frequently

than once in any 90-day period for meters that average more than 2000 Mcf per day; once in

any six month period for meters that average from 250-2000 Mcf per day; and once in any one

year period for meters that average less than 250 Mcf per day. In the event either party

shall notify the other that it desires a special test of any measuring equipment, the

parties shall cooperate to secure a prompt verification of the accuracy of such equipment,

at the expense of the requesting party.

 

3.9 Meter Correction. If, upon test, any measuring equipment is found to be in error by not

more than two percent, previous recordings of such equipment shall be considered accurate in

computing Receipts or Deliveries hereunder, but such equipment shall be adjusted at once to

record correctly. If, upon test, any measuring equipment shall be found to be inaccurate by

an amount exceeding two percent at a recording corresponding to the average hourly rate of

flow for the period since the last preceding test, then any previous recordings of such

equipment shall be corrected to zero error for any period which is known definitely, but in

case the period is not known definitely or agreed upon, such correction shall be for a

period extending over one-half of the time elapsed since the date of the last test, not

exceeding a correction period of six months.
