GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

Shipper shall not be responsible for such Transportation and

related expenses if the special testing reveals that the

meter(s) is (are) not operating within the required tolerance

level of two percent (2%).

 

The operator, for purposes of this section, shall be the owner

of the equipment referenced herein, or the agent of such owner,

or such other person as the parties may agree in writing.

 

If, upon any test, any measuring equipment is found to be in

error, such errors shall be taken into account in a practical

manner in computing the deliveries. If the resultant aggregate

error in the computed receipts or deliveries is not more than

two percent (2%), then previous receipts or deliveries shall be

considered accurate. All equipment shall, in any case, be

adjusted at the time of test to record correctly. If, however,

the resultant aggregate error in computing receipts or

deliveries exceeds two percent (2%), at a recording

corresponding to the average hourly rate, of Gas flow rate for

the period since the last preceding test, the previous

recordings of such equipment 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.

 

12.4 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 of receipts or

deliveries through such equipment shall be determined as

follows; provided, however, that the correction period shall be

within six (6) Months of the production Month, with a three (3)

Month rebuttal period and provided, further, that such standard

shall not apply in the case of deliberate omission or

misrepresentation or mutual mistake of fact. Parties' other

statutory or contractual rights shall not otherwise be

diminished by this standard:

 

(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, special test or mathematical

calculation, or in the absence of both (a) and (b) then;
