GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

26.12 Correction of Metering Errors. If, upon any test, any measuring equipment is found to be in error,

such that the resultant aggregate error in the computed volumes of gas and quantities of energy received or

delivered does not exceed two percent (2%), such errors may be taken into account in a practical manner in

computing the volumes of gas and quantities of energy received or delivered. All equipment shall, in any

case, be adjusted at the time of test to record correctly. If, however, the resultant aggregate error in

the computed volumes of gas and quantities of energy received or delivered exceeds two percent (2%),

previous Recordings of such equipment, and the corresponding volumes of gas and quantities of energy

received or delivered, shall be corrected to zero error for any period which is known definitely or agreed

upon, but in case the period is not known definitely or agreed upon, such correction shall be for a period

extending over one half of the time elapsed since the date of the last test, not exceeding a correction

period of 16 Days.

26.13 Failure of Measuring Equipment.

(a) In the event any measuring equipment is out of service, or is found registering inaccurately

and the error is not determinable by test, previous Recordings from such equipment, or the volumes of gas or

quantities of energy received or delivered through such equipment, shall be estimated:

(1) by using the registration of any check meter or meters if installed and accurately

registering;

(2) in the absence of check meters, by correcting the error if the percentage of error

is ascertainable by calibration, special test or mathematical calculation;

(3) in the absence of check meters or the possibility of calibrations, by using

Recordings or quantities received or delivered through such equipment during periods under similar

conditions when the equipment was registering accurately; or

(4) as otherwise agreed by Transporter and Shipper.

(b) The Recordings from such equipment, or the volumes of gas and quantities of energy received

or delivered through such equipment, so estimated shall be used in determining the volumes of gas and

quantities of energy received or delivered for any known or agreed upon applicable period. In case the

period is not known or agreed upon, such estimated receipts or deliveries shall be used in determining the

quantity of gas received or delivered hereunder during the latter half of the period beginning on the date

of the immediately preceding test and ending on the date the measuring equipment has been adjusted to record

accurately. The Recordings of the measuring equipment during the first half of said period shall be

considered accurate in computing receipts or deliveries.

26.14 Preservation of Records. Both Transporter and Shipper shall preserve all test data, charts, and

other similar Records for a period of at least two years, or such other longer period as may be required by

public authority.
