GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

----------------------------

 

(d) Where measurement is by other than orifice,

turbine or ultrasonic meter, standards commonly acceptable in the

natural gas industry and mutually agreeable to the parties shall be

used in the determination of all factors involved in the computation

of Gas volumes.

 

17.8 ELECTRONIC FLOW COMPUTERS

 

It is recognized that electronic or other types of flow

computers have been developed that permit the direct computation of

Gas flows. MEP may use such devices for custody transfer.

 

17.9 NEW MEASUREMENT TECHNIQUES

 

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

17.10 CALIBRATION AND TEST OF METERS

 

The accuracy of all measuring equipment shall be

verified by MEP at reasonable intervals, and if requested, in the

presence of representatives of Shipper, but MEP shall not be required

to verify the accuracy of such equipment more frequently than once

per Month. If either party at any time desires a special test of any

measuring equipment, it will promptly notify the other, and the

accuracy of such equipment. If, upon testing, the challenged

equipment is found to be in error, then it shall be repaired and

calibrated. The cost of any such special testing, repair and

calibration shall be borne by the party requiring the special test if

the percentage of inaccuracy is found to be one percent (1%) or less;

otherwise, the cost shall be borne by the party operating the

challenged measuring equipment.

 

17.11 CORRECTION OF METERING ERRORS

 

If, upon any test, any measuring equipment is found to

be inaccurate, such equipment shall be adjusted immediately to

measure accurately. If, upon any test, the measuring equipment in the
