GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The average pressure, temperature, specific gravity, and carbon
dioxide and nitrogen content for the period under consideration
shall be determined so as to calculate a factor for volumetric
adjustment known as the supercompressibility factor, and its
application to volume calculations to effect volumetric
adjustment, shall be in accordance with Transmission Measurement
Committee Reports No. 7, Turbine Metering, or such subsequent
industry standard that may be developed and adopted by UTOS.
(b) Orifice Meters. Orifice meters, if used, shall be installed, and
Gas volumes computed, in accordance with American Gas Association
Report No. 3, latest edition.
(c) Electronic Flow Computers. It is recognized that electronic flow
computers will be utilized for the direct computation of Gas
flows without the use of charts.
(d) Densitometers. If a densitometer is used, the density of the Gas
shall be determined to the nearest .001 of a pound. Calibration
shall be done as directed by UTOS.
(e) New Measurement Techniques. If at any time during the term
hereof, 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 substituted
upon mutual agreement thereto by the Parties.
3.8 Location of Check Measuring Equipment. Shipper will cause to be
provided, free of expense to UTOS, the necessary space on offshore
platforms for the installation of check measuring or electronic equipment
and such other equipment, as may be necessary, for the proper control and
operation of the System. Shipper will also grant to UTOS, or cause to be
granted, the right of access to said platforms. UTOS will indemnify
Shipper and hold it harmless from any claims, suits, or other actions of
any kind resulting from any negligent or unauthorized use or access
granted relative to the said platforms.
3.9 Calibration and Test of Meters. The accuracy of all measuring equipment
shall be verified by the owner thereof at reasonable intervals, and if
requested, in the presence of representatives of the other Party
hereunder, but neither Shipper nor UTOS shall be required to verify the
accuracy of such equipment more frequently than once in any 30-day
period. If either Party at any time desires a special test of any
measuring equipment, it will promptly notify the other, and the Parties
shall then cooperate to secure a prompt verification of the accuracy of
such equipment. Transportation and related expenses incurred by Shipper
or UTOS involved in the testing of meters at offshore locations shall be
borne by the Party incurring such expenses.
