GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

gas received and equivalent volumes delivered shall be

determined. Shipper may install check measuring

equipment at its own cost and expense; provided such

equipment shall be installed in a manner not to

interfere with the operations of Transporter.

Transporter and Shipper, in the presence of each other,

shall have access to the other's measuring equipment at

all reasonable times but the reading, calibrating and

adjusting electronic computer components and/or

mechanical recording instruments and the changing of

charts shall be done only by the equipment owner or

such owner's representative, unless otherwise agreed

upon. Both Transporter and Shipper shall have the

right to be 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; provided,

however, failure of either Transporter or Shipper to

witness such an operation shall not affect the validity

of such operation in anyway. The records from such

measuring equipment shall remain the property of the

party owning the equipment, but within 10 days of a

request, each will submit to the other for inspection

its records and charts, together with related

calculations. All records and charts shall be returned

within 30 days after receipt. The measurement

Measurement Committee Report #3 of the American Gas

Association, revised and reprinted, September 1967, and

any subsequent amendments Transporter may adopt.

install electronic flow computers to permit the direct
