GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (continued)
other that it desires a special test of any measuring
equipment, the parties shall cooperate to secure a prompt
verification of the accuracy of such equipment. The
expense of any special test, if called for shall be borne
by the requesting Party if the measuring equipment tested
is found to be in error not more than two percent (2%).
If, upon test, any measuring equipment is found to be
in error by not more than two percent (2%), any previous
recording by such equipment shall be considered accurate
in computing deliveries of gas, but such equipment shall be
adjusted at once to record accurately.
If, upon test, any measuring equipment shall be
found to be inaccurate by an amount exceeding two percent
(2%), at a recording corresponding to the average hourly
rate of flow for the period since the last preceding test,
then any previous recordings of such equipment shall be
corrected to zero error for one-half (1/2) of the time
elapsed since the date of the last test.
4.6 Measurement Closing - The closing of measurement shall be no
later than the fifth (5th) business day after the close of the
production month. Any meter adjustment that occurs after the
closing of measurement shall be treated as a prior period
adjustment. If actual quantities are not available,
quantities will be estimated by the measuring party.
4.7 Correction of metering errors - failure of meters:
In the event a meter is out of service, or registering
inaccurately, the volume of gas delivered shall be determined:
(a) by using the registration of any check meter,
telemeter or meters, if installed and accurately
registering; or, in the absence of (a);
(b) by correcting the error if the percentage of error is
ascertainable by calibration, tests or mathematical
calculation; or in the absence of both (a) and (b),
(c) by estimating the quantity of delivery by deliveries
during periods under similar conditions when the
meter was registering accurately.
