Southern Star shall have the right to request a test of the meter
facility of Shipper, and Shipper shall have the right to request a test
of the meter facility of Southern Star at reasonable intervals, no more
often than once in thirty days. IfSRE is found to exceed the limit
stated above, the party owning the orifice meter shall, at the request
of the other party, submit to the requesting party plans for
installation of pulsation suppression equipment within a thirty-day
period following such request, and shall install said equipment within a
reasonable period of time. If such plan is not submitted within the
thirty-day period, or equipment not installed within a reasonable time,
the requesting party shall have the option of shutting in the delivery.
Pulsation errors determined by use of the square root error indicator
