GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(continued)

 

e. Failure of Meters. In the event a meter is out of service or

registering inaccurately as defined in Section (g) below, the volume

of gas delivered hereunder shall be estimated:

 

(1) By using the registration of any check meter or meters if

installed and accurately registering, or

 

(2) by correcting the error if the percentage of error is

ascertainable by calibration, test or mathematical calculation,

or

 

(3) by estimating the volume of delivery by during periods under

similar conditions when the meter was registering accurately.

 

f. Test of Meters. The accuracy of the Transporter's measuring

equipment shall be verified by the Transporter at reasonable

intervals, and at least annually in Transporter's market area, and,

if requested, in the presence of representatives of the Shipper; but

the Transporter shall not be required to verify the accuracy of such

equipment more frequently than once in any thirty-day (30) period.

In the event either the Transporter or the Shipper shall notify the

other that it desires a special test of any measuring equipment, the

Transporter and the Shipper shall cooperate to secure a prompt

verification of the accuracy of such equipment.

 

g. Correction of Meter Errors. If, upon test, any measuring equipment

is found to be not more than one (1) percent fast or slow, except

recording calorimeters or gravitometers whose allowable margin of

error shall be not more than one half of one percent (0.5%) fast or

slow, previous recordings of such equipment shall be considered

correct in computing deliveries of gas hereunder; 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 one (1) percent, at a recording corresponding to the

average hourly rate of flow for the period since the last preceding

test, or with respect to recording calorimeters or gravitometers

greater than one half of one percent (0.5%),
