If either party at any time desires a special

test of any measuring equipment, it will promptly

notify the other party and the parties shall then

cooperate to secure a prompt verification of the

accuracy of such equipment. Transportation and

related expenses involved in the testing of meters

shall be borne by the party incurring such



The Operator, for purposes of this section,

shall be the owner of the equipment referenced

herein, or the agent of such owner, or such other

person as the parties may agree in writing.


If, upon any test, Operator's measuring

equipment is found to be in error, such errors

shall be taken into account in a practical manner

in computing the deliveries. If the resultant

aggregate error in the computed receipts or

deliveries is not more than 0.5% for chromatograph

or calorimeter and two percent (2%) for other

measuring equipment, then previous receipts or

deliveries shall be considered accurate. All

equipment shall, in any case, be adjusted at the

time of test to record correctly. If, however,

the resultant aggregate error in computing

receipts or deliveries exceeds 0.5% for

chromatograph or calorimeter and two percent (2%)

for other measuring equipment, at a recording

corresponding to the average hourly rate, of Gas

flow rate for the period since the last preceding

test, the previous recordings of such equipment

shall be corrected to zero error for any period

which is 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.


6.4 In the event any measuring equipment is out

of service, or is found registering inaccurately

and the error is not determinable by test,

previous recordings of injections or withdrawals

through such equipment shall be determined as

follows; provided, however, that the correction

period shall not exceed one (1) year:


(a) by using the registration of any

check meter or meters if installed and

accurately registering, or in the absence of



(b) by correcting the error if the

percentage of error is ascertainable by

calibration, special test or mathematical

calculation, or in the absence of both (a)

and (b) then;


(c) by estimating the quantity of

receipt or delivery based on receipts or

deliveries during preceding periods under

similar conditions when the meter was

registering accurately.
