not more often than is found necessary in practice.

The accuracy of chromatographs shall be verified at least once every thirty

(30) Days. If, upon testing, the measuring equipment is found to be in error

by not more than two percent (2%), previous recordings of such equipment shall

be considered accurate in computing deliveries, but such equipment shall be

adjusted at once to record accurately. If, upon testing, the measuring

equipment shall be found to be inaccurate by an amount exceeding two percent

(2%), 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 or agreed upon, but in the case of 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 last test, not exceeding a correction period of

sixteen (16) Days. If after testing a meter is found to be out of service or

registering inaccurately, the quantity of Gas delivered shall be determined:

(a) by correcting the error if the percentage of error is ascertainable by

calibration, tests or mathematical calculation, or in the absence of any such

possible method of determining deliveries, then (b) by using the registration

of any check meter or meters, if installed, and accurately measuring or, in

the absence of both possible methods of determining deliveries as set forth in

(a) or (b), then (c) by estimating the quantity of Gas delivered as the same

quantity of Gas delivered during previous periods under similar conditions

when the meter was registering accurately.
