(h) 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 which is feasible:


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

ascertainable by calibration, special test, or

mathematical calculation.


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

if installed and accurately registering.


(iii) 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.


(i) Preservation of Records. Shipper and Transporter shall

preserve for a period of at least 3 Years, or for such longer

period as may be required by appropriate authority, all test

data and other similar records.

maintain and operate at its own expense, all main line taps
