GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

4. MEASURING EQUIPMENT

 

4.1 Unless otherwise agreed upon, Transporter or Transporter's

designee will install, as necessary, maintain and operate

measuring stations at or near the receipt and delivery point(s)

properly equipped with displacement, turbine or orifice meters,

gas samplers, chromatographs and other necessary measuring

equipment by which the quantity of gas delivered hereunder shall

be measured. The cost of Transporter's or Transporter's

designee's installing any incremental measuring facilities

necessary with respect to the receipt and delivery of gas shall

be borne by the Shipper(s) of such gas, unless otherwise

expressly agreed. Transporter may require Shipper or Operator to

provide records and/or charts from orifice meters measuring

deliveries of gas by Shipper to Transporter within the period of

time prescribed by Transporter.

 

Orifice meters shall be installed and operated in accordance with

specifications recommended in Gas Measurement Committee Report

No. 3 of the American Gas Association, as the same may be amended

from time to time, applied in a practical manner. Displacement

or turbine meters, if used, shall be installed and gas volumes

computed, in accordance with generally accepted industry

practices.

 

4.2 Demand Meters

 

If the Rate Schedule according to which gas delivered to Shipper

is billed includes a demand charge based on the Dth taken by

Shipper on the day of greatest delivery during a billing month,

Transporter shall use meters suitable for determining such

greatest daily delivery.

 

4.3 Check Meters

 

Shipper or Operator may install, maintain and operate, at its own

expense, such check measuring equipment as it shall desire. Such

equipment shall be so installed as not to interfere with the

operation of Transporter's measuring equipment at or near the

points of delivery. The Transporter shall have access to such

check measuring equipment at all reasonable hours, but the

reading, calibrating and adjusting thereof and the changing of

charts shall be done only by the Shipper or Operator.
