GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Continued)

 

available or may become available at any time during the term of

the Transportation Agreement.

 

4.2 Such measurement, both volumetric and thermal, shall be at a

temperature of 60 degrees Fahrenheit and at a pressure of 14.73

psia dry, and on the basis of the methods prescribed and

published by the American Gas Association in conjunction with the

ANSI/API 2530 Report as currently available and in accordance

with any subsequent amendments thereof accepted and agreed upon

between the parties if orifice meters are used. If positive

displacement or turbine meters are used, measurement shall be

performed in accordance with AGA-7 as currently available and

with any subsequent amendments thereof accepted and agreed upon

between the parties. Btu content shall be determined by taking

the arithmetic average of the heating value as recorded by a

chromatograph or other method of determination generally accepted

in the industry. Flowing temperatures shall be determined by a

recording thermometer or EGM.

 

4.3 All measuring stations shall be acceptable to KPC and Shipper and

installed and operated to conform to recognized industry

standards, using flange connections and, where necessary,

pulsation dampening equipment. Auxiliary equipment shall be

installed so as not to interfere with the measurement of either

party.

 

4.4 Either KPC or Shipper may witness the installation or maintenance

of the other's equipment. Neither KPC nor Shipper shall be

required to verify accuracy more often than once during any 30 Day

period. If, upon test, accuracy is found to be within 2% by

volume (chromatograph within 0.5%), measurements taken by such

equipment shall be assumed to have been Accurate. Any error

exceeding these percentages shall require correction to zero error

of previous recordings back to the date error began. If the

beginning date of error is unknown, correction shall extend to

one-half the time since the last test, not to exceed 16 Days.

 

4.5 Where wellhead compressors have been installed, the maximum

permissible Square Root Error Indicator (SREI) shall be no greater

than 1% for volumes less than 2 Mmcf per Day and .5% for volumes
