8.4 Test of Meters.

 

(a) The accuracy of custody transfer measurement equipment

shall be verified at reasonable intervals and, if

requested, in the presence of representatives of the Point

Operator; provided that Pipeline shall not be required to

verify the accuracy of such equipment more frequently than

once in any 30-day period. In any event, Pipeline will

verify the accuracy of rotary and diaphragm meters at least

once every year and all other meters at least once every

six (6) Months, unless Shipper requests special

verification as described in (b) below; provided that when

daily deliveries at the interconnection average 12,000 Mcf

per day or greater during a calendar year, the accuracy of

the measuring equipment shall be verified at least once

every two (2) Months.

 

(b) Shipper may obtain special verification of the accuracy of

any measuring equipment by providing Pipeline at least 72

hours advance notice. Shipper and Pipeline shall cooperate

to secure a prompt verification of the accuracy of such

equipment. If such measuring equipment is found to be

inaccurate by two percent (2%) or less, Pipeline shall have

the right to bill Shipper for the reasonable costs directly

incurred due to such special verification, including any

labor and mileage costs, and Shipper shall pay such costs

promptly following receipt of an invoice.

 

8.5 Measurement Equipment Inaccuracy and Failure. If measurement

equipment of Pipeline or of a Delivery Point Operator or third

party performing Measurement Operations is found to be

inoperative or inaccurate, such equipment shall be adjusted to

register correctly, and the amount of error shall be determined

by the most accurate method feasible. If the inaccuracy shall

have resulted in an error of more than two percent (2%) in the

measurement of gas, the calculated deliveries of gas shall be

adjusted to compensate for such error. Such adjustment shall be

made for such period of inaccuracy as may be definitely known.

If the period of inaccuracy shall not be definitely known, such

adjustment shall be made for the last half of the period between

the time the metering equipment was adjusted to register

correctly and the date of the last previous meter test. If for

any reason the measuring equipment is out of service or out of

repair so that the amount of gas delivered cannot be ascertained

or computed from the readings thereof, the amount of gas

delivered during such period shall be estimated and agreed on by

the use of the first of the following methods that is feasible:
