GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

----------------------------

 

22.8 ELECTRONIC FLOW COMPUTERS

 

It is recognized that electronic or other types of flow

computers have been developed that permit the direct computation of gas

flows without the use of charts. Where the substitution of these devices

is deemed acceptable by Trailblazer in the exercise of its reasonable

judgment, their use for custody transfer will be permitted.

 

22.9 NEW MEASUREMENT TECHNIQUES

 

If, at any time, a new method or technique is developed with

respect to gas measurement or the determination of the factors used in

such gas measurement, such new method or technique may be substituted by

Trailblazer in exercise of its reasonable judgment. Trailblazer shall

promptly inform all Shippers of any new techniques adopted.

 

22.10 CALIBRATION AND TEST OF METERS

 

The accuracy of all measuring equipment shall be verified by

Trailblazer at reasonable intervals, and if requested, in the presence

of representatives of Shipper, but neither Shipper nor Trailblazer shall

be required to verify the accuracy of such equipment more frequently

than once in any thirty (30) day period. If either party at any time

desires a special test of any measuring equipment, it will promptly

notify the other, and the parties shall then cooperate to secure a

prompt verification of the accuracy of such equipment.

 

22.11 CORRECTION OF METERING ERRORS

 

If, upon any test, any measuring equipment is found to be

inaccurate, such equipment shall be adjusted immediately to measure

accurately. If, upon any test, the measuring equipment in the aggregate

is found to be inaccurate by one percent (1%) or more at a recording

corresponding to the average hourly rate of gas flow for the period

since the last preceding test, any payments based thereon shall be

corrected pursuant to Section 16.5 hereof, at the rate of such

inaccuracy for any period which is known definitely or agreed upon, but

in case the period is not known definitely or agreed upon, such

correction shall be for a period extending over one-half (1/2) of the

time elapsed since the date of the last test. 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 shall

not otherwise be diminished by this standard.
