GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

5. MEASUREMENT EQUIPMENT (Continued)

 

(f) Adjustment for Inaccuracy

 

If, upon test, any measurement equipment is found to be inaccurate, such equipment

shall be adjusted at once to record correctly, and the amount of error shall be

determined by the most accurate method feasible. If, upon test, any measurement

equipment is found to be inaccurate by an amount exceeding two percent (2.0%) in the

measurement of gas quantities since the last preceding test, then the calculated

deliveries of gas shall be adjusted to compensate for such error. Such adjustment

shall be made for such period of inaccuracy which is definitely known. If the period

of inaccuracy is not definitely known 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 sixteen (16) days.

 

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.

 

(g) Maintenance of Records

 

Pine Needle and Customer shall preserve all original or equivalent electronic test

data, charts, or other similar records for a period required by the applicable rules

of regulatory agencies having jurisdiction.

 

(h) New Measurement Methods

 

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 used by Pine Needle.
