GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
4. MEASUREMENT PROCEDURES (Continued)
any measuring equipment found to be inaccurate so that the registration
thereof will be accurate. Each party agrees to give the other
reasonable notice of such tests so that if the other party desires it
may have its representatives present.
Moreover, each party shall have the right, at any time, to
challenge the accuracy of any measuring equipment used hereunder and,
when so challenged, the equipment shall be tested by the party
operating the challenged equipment. If, upon testing, the challenged
equipment is found to be in error, then it shall be repaired and
calibrated. The cost of any such special testing, repair and
calibration shall be borne by the party requesting the special test if
the percentage of inaccuracy is found to be two percent (2%) or less;
otherwise, the cost shall be borne by the party operating the
challenged measuring equipment.
If upon any test of the measuring facilities the percentage
of inaccuracy exceeds two percent (2%), then the registrations thereof
shall be corrected for a period extending back in time to the beginning
of the inaccuracy, if such time is ascertainable, and if not
ascertainable, then the registrations thereof shall be corrected back
one-half (1/2) of the time elapsed since the last date of calibration;
however, in no event shall the registrations be corrected for a period
extending back in time more than sixteen (16) days.
In the event that the amount of gas delivered and/or
redelivered hereunder cannot be reasonably ascertained or computed from
the measuring equipment, then the volume of the gas received and/or
delivered, as applicable, during such period shall be determined by
using the registration of any check meter or meters, if installed and
accurately registering; or by estimating the quantity of gas on the
basis of past receipts and/or deliveries, whichever is applicable, made
hereunder during periods when similar conditions existed and the meter
was registering accurately.
