19. MEASUREMENTS AND TESTS FOR DELIVERY OF NATURAL GAS (Continued)

 

(i) (10) Other types of meters may be used if mutually agreed to by Operator and Buyer.

 

(11) Instrumentation and equipment to provide Records or samples of gas necessary to

determine the specific gravity, heating value, and/or concentrations of nitrogen

or carbon dioxide as required under Sections 19(f), 19(g), and 19(h) hereof may

be installed at representative points along the pipeline in lieu of installing

such instrumentation and equipment at each measuring station.

 

(12) Upon notice to Buyers, Operator may prospectively implement and use any future

editions or versions of the American Gas Association or ANSI reports referenced

in this Section 19.

 

(13) Nothing in this Section 19(i) shall be construed to require Operator to construct

any facilities.

 

(j) Check Measuring Equipment.

 

(1) Buyer may install check measurement equipment, provided such equipment does not

interfere with the exercise of Operator's rights to operate its station under

this Tariff.

 

(2) Operator, in the presence of Buyer, shall have access to Buyer's check measuring

equipment at all reasonable times, but the reading, calibration and adjustment

thereof and the change of charts shall be performed only by Buyer, unless

otherwise agreed upon.

 

(3) Buyer shall exercise reasonable care in the installation, maintenance and

operation of its equipment so as to avoid any inaccuracy in the determination of

the quantity of gas delivered.

 

(4) The records from such check measuring equipment shall remain the property of

Buyer, but upon request Buyer will submit to Operator its records and charts,

together with calculations therefrom, for inspection, subject to return within

thirty (30) days after receipt thereof.

 

(k) Calibration and Testing of Meters. The accuracy of all measuring equipment shall be

verified by its operator at reasonable intervals and, if requested, in the presence of

representatives of the other party, but neither Operator nor Buyer 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, or if either party at any time observes an error in any such measuring

equipment, it will promptly notify the other party, and the parties shall then

cooperate to secure a prompt verification of the accuracy of such equipment. The

expense of any such special test shall be borne by the requesting party if the

measurement equipment so tested is found not to be in error such that previous

recordings from the equipment must be corrected under the provisions of Section 19(l)

herein.
