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:
