3.6 Correction of Metering Errors - (Continued)


If, upon test, the measuring equipment shall be found to be

inaccurate by an amount exceeding two percent (2%), at a

recording corresponding to the average hourly rate of flow for

the period since the last preceding test, then any previous

recordings of such equipment shall be corrected to zero error

for any period that is known definitely or agreed upon. In

case the period is not known or agreed upon, such correction

shall be for a period equal to the lesser of one-half of the

time elapsed since the date of the last test or sixteen (l6)



3.7 Failure of Meters - In the event a meter is out of service or

registering inaccurately, the quantity of gas delivered shall

be determined:


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

is ascertainable by calibration, test or

mathematical calculations; or in the absence of (i),



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

meters, if installed and accurately registering; or

in the absence of both (i) and (ii), then


(iii) By estimating the quantity of delivery during

periods under similar conditions when the meter was

registering accurately.
