GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

 

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 (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 determined:

 

(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.

each preserve for a period of one year all test data, charts and

other similar records created after June 1, 1996.
