GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

26.11 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 Transporter nor Shipper 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 26.12 herein.

 

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:
