GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

4. MEASURING EQUIPMENT

 

4.1 Installation and Operation: Transporter or the measuring party

will be responsible for the construction, ownership, operation, and

maintenance of any measuring facilities necessary to accomplish the receipt

of gas by Transporter for the account of Shipper at the Receipt Points and

the delivery of gas for the account of Shipper at the Delivery Points.

Transporter and Shipper shall at all reasonable times have access to the

premises of the other for measuring equipment related inspections. Only the

measuring party will operate the measuring equipment, and collect

measurement information.

 

4.2 Testing and Repair of Measurement Equipment:

 

(a) Transporter and Shipper shall keep their own measuring equipment

accurate and in repair, making periodic tests to verify the condition of

meter tubes, orifice plates, and flow computers. Periodic tests shall be

performed, at a minimum, on a quarterly basis for Receipt Points and

Delivery Points. Transporter and Shipper will give each other or their

designees seven calendar days notice prior to tests of the measuring

equipment so that the other party may have its representative present if

desired. Either party shall have the right to challenge the accuracy of the

other party's measurement equipment, and when challenged, the equipment

shall be tested, calibrated and, if required, repaired by the challenged

party. The challenged party will bear the cost of the special test if the

inaccuracy is found to cause the total measured Btus during a month to be

more than 1% of the total measured Btus, but if the inaccuracy is found to

cause the total measured Btus to be 1% or less of the total measured Btus,

the challenging party will bear the cost of the special test.

 

(b) If upon any equipment test the inaccuracy and all prior

inaccuracies resulting from other equipment tests during the same period are

found to cause the total measured Btus to be in excess of 1% of the total

measured Btus and the total measurement adjustment for a month is greater

than 100 Dth, the registrations shall be corrected for a period extending

back to the time the inaccuracy occurred, if ascertainable, and if not

ascertainable, then back one-half of the time elapsed since the last

equipment calibration date; otherwise prior measurements shall be deemed to

be correct. Any measuring equipment found to be measuring inaccurately in

any percentage shall be adjusted at once to read accurately.
