GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

11.2 Check Measuring Equipment. Shipper may install, maintain and

operate, at its own expense, downstream of the Delivery Point, such

check measuring equipment as desired, provided that such equipment

shall be so installed as not to interfere with the operation of

Transporter's measuring equipment.

 

11.3 Right to be Present. Transporter and Shipper shall have the right

to have representatives present at the time of any installing,

reading, cleaning, changing, repairing, inspecting, testing,

calibrating, or adjusting done in connection with the other's

measuring equipment used in measuring or checking the measurement of

deliveries of gas under any Transportation Service Agreement between

Transporter and Shipper. Either party shall give the other

reasonable advance notice of such activities with respect to meters.

The records from such measuring equipment shall remain the property

of their owner, but upon request each will submit to the other its

records and charts, together with calculations therefor, for

inspection and verification, subject to return within 30 days after

receipt thereof.

 

11.4 Care Required. All installations of measuring equipment applying to

or affecting deliveries of gas shall be made in such a manner as to

permit an accurate determination of the quantity of gas delivered and

ready verification of the accuracy of measurement. Reasonable care

shall be exercised by both parties in the installation, maintenance

and operation of pressure regulating equipment so as to prevent any

inaccuracy in the determination of the volume of gas delivered under

any Transportation Service Agreement.

 

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.
