General Terms and Conditions
11.5 Calibration and Testing of Meters. The accuracy of Transporter's measuring
equipment shall be verified by Transporter at reasonable intervals, and if
requested, in the presence of representatives of Shipper, but Transporter shall
not be required to verify the accuracy of such equipment more frequently than
once in any 30 day period. In the event either party shall notify the other that
it desires a special test of any measuring equipment the parties shall cooperate
to secure a prompt verification of the accuracy of such equipment. The expense of
any such special test, if called for, shall be borne by Shipper if the measuring
equipment tested is found not to be in error by more than two percent.
If, upon testing, any measuring equipment, including recording calorimeters, is
found to be in error by not more than two percent, previous recording of such
equipment shall be considered accurate in computing deliveries of Gas, but such
equipment shall be adjusted at once to record accurately as defined by the
appropriate metering standards.
If, upon testing, any measuring equipment shall be found to be inaccurate by an
amount exceeding two percent, 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
which is known definitely but in case the period is not known or agreed upon,
such correction shall be for a period extending over one-half of the time elapsed
since the date of last test, not to exceed a period of 180 days.
11.6 Measurement Corrections.
(a) Measurement data corrections should be processed within six (6) Months of
the production Month, with a three (3) Month rebuttal period. This
standard shall not apply in the case of deliberate omission or
misrepresentation or mutual mistake of fact. Parties' other statutory or
contractual rights will not otherwise be diminished by this standard.
(b) For treatment of measurement prior period adjustments, treat the
adjustment by taking it back to the production Month. A meter adjustment
becomes a prior period adjustment after the fifth Business Day following
the business Month.
11.7 Correction of Metering Errors - Failure of Meters. In the event a meter is out
of service, or registering inaccurately, the volume of Gas delivered shall be
(a) by using the registration of any check meter or meters, if installed and
accurately registering; or, in the absence of (a);
(b) by correcting the error if the percentage of error is ascertainable by
calibration, tests, or mathematical calculation; or in the absence of both
(a) and (b), then;
(c) by estimating the quantity of delivery by deliveries during periods under
similar conditions when the meter was registering accurately.
11.8 Preservation of Metering Records. Transporter and Shipper shall each preserve
for a period of one Year all test data, charts and other similar records created
after June 1, 1996.
