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

 

(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. KMLP may use such devices for custody transfer.

 

17.9 NEW MEASUREMENT TECHNIQUES

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
