2.9 Measurement Equipment.

(a) Unless otherwise agreed, Transporter will install, maintain, or

operate or cause to be installed, maintained and operated,

measuring stations equipped with flow meters and other necessary

metering and measuring equipment by which the volumes of gas

received and delivered hereunder shall be determined. Shipper may

install check-measuring equipment at its own cost and expense,

provided such equipment shall be so installed as not to interfere

with the operations of Transporter. The reading, calibrating, and

adjusting of electronic computer components and/or mechanical

recording instruments thereof shall be done only by the equipment

owner or such owner's representative, unless otherwise agreed upon.

Both Transporter and Shipper shall have the right to be present at

the time of any installing, reading, cleaning, changing, repairing,

inspecting, testing, calibrating, or adjusting done in connection

with the other's measuring equipment; provided, however, failure of

either Transporter or Shipper to witness such an operation shall

not affect the validity of such operation in any way. The records

from such measuring equipment shall remain the property of their

owner, but upon request, each will submit within 10 Days to the

other its records, together with calculations there from, for

inspection, subject to return within 30 Days after receipt thereof.

The measurement equipment of Shipper shall be for check purposes

only and, except as expressly provided in the applicable agreement,

shall not be used in the measurement of gas for purposes of the

Agreement.

(b) Orifice Meters. Orifice meters shall be installed and gas volumes

computed in accordance with the standards prescribed in AGA Report

(c) Ultrasonic Meters. Ultrasonic meters shall be installed and gas

volumes computed in accordance with the standards prescribed in AGA

Report No. 9 "Measurement of Gas by Multipath Ultrasonic Meters".

(d) Positive Displacement Meters. Positive displacement meters shall be

installed and gas volumes computed in accordance with generally

accepted industry practices.

(e) Electronic Flow Computers. Electronic flow computers shall be used

for direct computation of gas flows for custody transfer.

(f) New Measurement Techniques. If, at any time during the term hereof,

a new method or technique is developed with respect to gas

measurement or the determination of the factors used in such gas

measurement, such new method or technique may be substituted by

Transporter in exercise of its reasonable judgment. Transporter

shall promptly inform all Shippers of any new technique adopted.
