GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Continued)

 

 

 

present, the results of the test shall nevertheless be considered

accurate until the next test. All tests of such measuring equipment

shall be made at the expense of the Person or Persons conducting the

test, except that the Person or Persons requesting a test shall bear

the expense of such test if the inaccuracy is found not to exceed two

percent, at a reading corresponding to the average hourly rate of

flow.

 

 

2.6 Correction and Adjustment: If, upon test, any measuring equipment is

found to be registering inaccurately by not more than two percent, at a

reading corresponding to the average hourly rate of flow, then readings

of such equipment since the time of the last test thereof shall be con-

sidered accurate in computing deliveries of gas. If, upon test, any

measuring equipment is found to be registering inaccurately by more

than two percent, at a reading corresponding to the average hourly rate

of flow, then readings of such equipment shall be corrected to zero

error for any past period definitely known, or agreed, to have been

inaccurate, or if the inaccuracy during all or part of the period of

time since the last test of such equipment is not so known or agreed

upon, for a period of sixteen days, or one-half of the elapsed time

since such last test, whichever is the shorter period. Any recording

equipment found to be registering inaccurately shall be immediately

adjusted to register accurately.

 

 

2.7 Failure of Measuring Equipment: If measuring equipment at any Point of

Delivery is out of service for any period, the measurement determinants

for such Point of Delivery during such period shall be determined:

 

 

2.71 By using the data recorded by any check measuring equipment

accurately registering: or

 

 

2.72 If such check measuring equipment is not registering accurately

but the percentage of error is ascertainable by a calibration

test, by using the data recorded, corrected to zero error; or

 

 

2.73 If neither of the methods provided in Subsections 2.71 and 2.72

above can be used, by estimating the necessary determinants by

reference to receipts or deliveries under similar conditions.

 

 

2.8 Preservation of Records: Each party shall preserve for a period of at

least three years, or such longer period as may be required by public

authority, all test data, charts, and other similar records.
