inspect equipment installed or furnished by the other, and the charts

and other measurement or test data of the other, at all times during

business hours; but the reading, calibration and adjustment of such

equipment and changing of charts shall be done only by the party

day of the month following the billing month.


Monthly Measurement. Transporter shall include any corrections received

on or before five (5) working days after the month in preparation of

monthly measurement statements. Measurement data available upstream of

aggregated points should be sent to the allocating party and used to

allocate the aggregated volume back to the upstream points. The monthly

measurement set will serve as the basis upon which allocations are

performed. For treatment of measurement prior period adjustments, treat

the adjustment by taking it back to the production month. A meter

adjustment becomes a prior period adjustment after the fifth business

day following the business month. Transporter shall process prior period

adjustments within six (6) months of the monthly measurement for the

respective month, subject to an additional three (3) month period for an

affected party, including Transporter, to challenge any prior period

adjustment. Such processing limitations shall not apply in the case of

deliberate omission or misrepresentation to limit Shipper's or

Transporter's other statutory or contractual rights. To the extent an

interconnecting party is contractually or statutorily permitted to

process adjustments beyond the six (6) month period above, Transporter

shall be permitted to process such corresponding adjustments to
