3.8 Right-of-Way and Rural Consumers - (Continued)


For measurement of gas delivered by El Paso to Shipper for

resale to such rural consumers, El Paso may, at its option,

require Shipper to install, maintain and operate at Shipper's

own expense, adjacent to El Paso's high-pressure regulators,

the meters, low-pressure regulators and other equipment



Notwithstanding the other provisions of these General Terms

and Conditions and unless other operating arrangements

mutually agreeable to Shipper and El Paso are employed, the

following arrangements shall apply to deliveries of gas by El

Paso to Shipper for resale to right-of-way consumers as well

as to deliveries of gas by El Paso to Shipper for resale to

rural consumers where, pursuant to the immediately preceding

paragraph, Shipper installs meters, low-pressure regulators

and other equipment.


Shipper will service all equipment installed by it and the

consumers served by use thereof, including handling of all

complaints and/or service calls. The reading of said meters

shall be performed by the party most conveniently able to do

so as mutually agreed upon by El Paso and Shipper. If the

meters are read by Shipper, then Shipper shall furnish a copy

of the meter readings to the El Paso, all without expense to

El Paso; provided, however, that El Paso shall have the right

to read said meters at any reasonable time upon giving notice

to Shipper. All pipe, meters and other equipment shall remain

the property of the person or corporation paying for same.

Shipper at its own expense will from time to time check the

accuracy of the meters measuring said gas and shall give El

Paso reasonable notice in writing of its intention to do so.

The provisions of Sections 3.6 and 3.7 hereof shall apply to

the accuracy of Shipper's measuring equipment. El Paso may at

its option have a representative present at such test.


The frequency of meter reading and the billing for gas

delivered by El Paso to Shipper for resale to such

right-of-way and rural consumers shall be in accordance with

such operating arrangements as may be mutually satisfactory to

El Paso and Shipper.
