GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
11. MEASUREMENT EQUIPMENT (continued)
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 therefore, 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
