3.2 Testing Meter Equipment: Crossroads' meter or meters shall be

open to inspection by Shipper in the presence of Crossroads.

Crossroads shall test its meters for accuracy of measurement

quarterly or as often as Crossroads deems advisable. Notice of

the time and nature of each test shall be given by Crossroads to

Shipper sufficiently in advance to permit convenient arrangement

for the presence of the representative of Shipper. If after notice

Shipper fails to have a representative present, the results of

the test shall nevertheless be considered accurate until the next

test. If any of the measuring equipment is found to be registering

inaccurately in any percentage, it shall be adjusted at once to

read as accurately as possible. A registration within two percent

(2%) of correct shall be considered correct as to deliveries prior

to the test.


3.3 Correction and Adjustment: If upon test, measuring equipment is

found to be not more than two percent (2%) inaccurate, previous

readings of such equipment after the last preceding test shall be

considered correct, but equipment shall be adjusted to record

accurately. If, on any test, measuring equipment is found to be

inaccurate by an amount exceeding two percent (2%), or if at any

time measuring equipment should be out of service or not

registering gas flowing through the meter over the period during

which the measuring equipment was registering inaccurately or was

out of service or not registering shall be estimated by use of the

first of the following methods which may be applicable:


(a) By using the registration of any check measuring equipment

installed by Shipper or other party if registering

accurately; or in the absence of (a)


(b) By computing error if percentage of error is ascertainable

by calibration, test or mathematical calculation; or in the

absence of (a) and (b) then


(c) By estimating the quantity received or delivered and/or its

thermal content by reference to actual deliveries or

deliveries during peak periods under similar conditions when

measuring equipment was registering accurately.


If the period during which measuring equipment has been

registering inaccurately or has been out of service or not

registering is not definitely known or agreed upon, correction

shall be made for the last half of the time elapsed since measuring

equipment was previously tested and found to be registering

within two percent (2%) of accurate or was adjusted to register

accurately. All corrections made as above provided shall be made

to zero error.
