GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

the presence of a representative of Shipper, but neither Shipper

nor TransColorado shall be required to verify the accuracy of such

equipment more frequently than once in a 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. Shipper shall bear the costs of any

special test requested by Shipper unless the measuring equipment

is found to be inaccurate by 2% or more.

 

10.11 Correction of Metering Errors. If, upon any test, any measuring

equipment is found to be inaccurate, such equipment shall be

adjusted immediately to measure accurately. If, upon any test,

the measuring equipment in the aggregate is found to be inaccurate

by two percent (2%) or more at a recording corresponding to the

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

preceding test, any payments based upon inaccurate measurement

shall be corrected pursuant to Section 13 of these General Terms

and Conditions at the rate of such inaccuracy for any period that

is known definitely or agreed upon, but in case the period is not

known definitely or agreed upon, such correction shall be for a

period extending over one half of the time elapsed since the date

of the last test.

 

10.12 Failure of Measuring Equipment. In the event any measuring

equipment is out of service or is found registering inaccurately

and the error is not determinable by test, or by previous

recordings, receipts or deliveries through such equipment shall be

estimated and agreed to by the parties upon the first of the

following methods that is feasible:

 

(a) By correcting the error if the percentage of error is

ascertainable by calibration, special test, or mathematical

calculation, or, in the absence of (a);

 

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

installed and accurately registering, or, in the absence of

(a) and (b);

 

(c) By estimating the quantity of gas received or delivered

based on receipts or deliveries during preceding periods

under similar conditions when the measuring equipment was

registering accurately.
