4. MEASURING EQUIPMENT

 

1. With respect to Gas received or delivered under a Transportation

Agreement, unless otherwise mutually agreed upon, all measuring

facilities shall be installed, if necessary, owned, maintained and

operated by Transporter or Transporter's designee near the Receipt

Point(s) and Delivery Point(s).

 

2. All meters and measuring equipment for the determination of

volume, Gross Heating Value and relative density shall be approved

pursuant to, and installed and maintained in accordance with, the

currently published standards of the American Gas Association, or

as mutually agreed upon. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all

installation of equipment applying to or affecting deliveries of

Gas shall be made in such manner as to permit an accurate

determination of the quantity and Gross Heating Value of Gas

delivered and ready verification of the accuracy of measurement.

Care shall be exercised by all parties in the installation,

maintenance and operation of pressure regulating equipment so as

to prevent any inaccuracy in the determination of the energy of

Gas delivered under the Transportation Agreement.

 

3. The accuracy of measuring equipment shall be verified by

Transporter or other party at reasonable intervals at the expense

of the party performing the verification, and if requested, in the

presence of representatives of the other party, but either party

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 co-operate to secure

a prompt verification of the accuracy of such equipment. The

expense of any such special test shall be borne by the requesting

party if the measuring equipment is found to be in error by not

more than the limits set out as follows:

 

(a) 2% for measuring equipment utilized to determine volume,

 

(b) 1% for any measuring equipment utilized to determine

relative density,

 

(c) 0.5% for any measuring equipment utilized to determine Gross

Heating Value.

 

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

not more than the limits specified above, the previous readings of

such equipment shall be considered accurate in computing

deliveries or receipts of Gas, but such equipment shall be

adjusted at once to register accurately.
