GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

2. MEASUREMENT(Continued)

2.9 Equipment (Continued)

(g) Calibration and Test of Meters. The accuracy of all measuring

equipment shall be verified by Transporter at reasonable intervals,

and if requested, in the presence of representatives of Shipper, but

neither Shipper nor Transporter shall be required to verify the

accuracy of such equipment more frequently than once in any 30-Day

period. If either Party at any time desires a special test of any

measuring equipment, it will promptly notify the other, and the

Parties shall then cooperate to secure a prompt verification of the

accuracy of such equipment.

 

(h) Correction of Metering Errors. If, upon test, the measuring

equipment is found to be in error by not more than one percent (1%),

previous recordings of such equipment shall be considered accurate

in computing deliveries, but such equipment shall be adjusted at

once to record accurately. If, upon test, the measuring equipment

shall be found to be inaccurate by an amount exceeding one percent

(1%), 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 that is known definitely or agreed upon. In case the

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

period equal to the lesser of one-half of the time elapsed since the

date of the last test or sixteen Days.

 

(i) Failure of Measuring Equipment. In the event any measuring equipment

is out of service or is found registering inaccurately and the error

is not determinable by test or by previous recordings, receipts or

deliveries through such equipment shall be estimated and agreed to

by the Parties upon the first of the following methods which is

feasible:

(A) By correcting the error if the percentage of error is

ascertainable by calibration, special test, or mathematical

calculation.

 

(B) By using the registration of any check meter or meters, if

installed and accurately registering.

 

(C) By estimating the quantity of receipt or delivery based on

receipts or deliveries during preceding periods under similar

conditions when the measuring equipment was registering

accurately.

 

(j) Preservation of Records. Shipper and Transporter shall preserve for

a period of at least 3 years, or for such longer period as may be

required by appropriate authority, all test data and other similar

records.
