GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (continued)

 

 

9. Measuring Equipment

 

9.1 Calibration and Test of Gas Meters

If either Shipper or Transporter shall, at any time, have reason to doubt

the accuracy of any gauge, measuring device, or other appliance used in

measuring the gas received or delivered, it shall notify the other in writing,

and within a reasonable time thereafter the measuring device shall be

tested in the presence of both parties. Neither the Shipper nor Transporter

shall be required to verify the accuracy of such equipment more frequently than

once in any ninety (90) day period.

 

9.2 Correction of Metering Errors

If, upon any test, any measuring equipment is found to be in error, such that the

resultant aggregate error in the computed volumes of gas and quantities of energy

received or delivered does not exceed two percent (2%), such errors may be taken

in account in a practical manner in computing the volumes of gas and quantities

of energy received or delivered. All equipment shall, in any case, be adjusted

at the time of test to record correctly. If, however, the resultant aggregate

error in the computed volumes of gas and quantities of energy received or

delivered exceed two percent (2%), previous Recordings of such equipment, and the

corresponding volumes of gas and quantities of energy received or delivered,

shall be corrected to zero error 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 of the time elapsed

since the date of the last test, not exceeding a correction period of forty-six (46)

days.

 

9.3 Failure of Measuring Equipment

In the event any measuring equipment is out of service, or is found registering

inaccurately and the error is not determinable by test, previous Recordings from

such equipment, or the volumes of gas or quantities of energy received or

delivered through such equipment, shall be estimated:

 

(1) by using the registration of any check meter(s) if installed

and accurately registering;

 

(2) in the absence of check meters, by correcting the error if the

percentage of error is ascertainable by calibration, special

test or mathematical calculation;
