in computing deliveries, but such equipment shall be adjusted at

once to record correctly. If, upon any test, any 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 gas flow for the period since the last preceding

test, previous records of such equipment shall be corrected to zero

error for any period which is known definitely or agreed upon, but

in case the period is not known definitely or agreed upon, such

correction shall be for a period extending over the latter one-half

of the time elapsed since the date of the last test.


2.6 Failure of Measuring Equipment - In the event any measuring

equipment is out of service, or if found registering inaccurately

and the error is not determinable by test, previous recordings or

deliveries through such equipment shall be estimated:


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 calculation,

or in the absence of both (a) and (b) then;


c. By estimating the quantity of delivery by deliveries during

periods under similar conditions when the meter was

registering accurately.


The estimated readings or deliveries so determined shall be used in

determining the volume of gas delivered for any known or agreed

upon applicable period. In case the period is not known or agreed

upon, such estimated deliveries shall be used in determining the

volume of gas delivered hereunder during the latter half of the

period from the date of the immediately preceding test to the

date the measuring equipment has been adjusted to record

accurately; the recordings of the measuring equipment during the

first half of said period shall be considered accurate in computing



2.7 Measurement Corrections. The cutoff for the closing of measurement

is five (5) business days after the business month. If an error

is discovered in the measured quantities, such error shall be

adjusted within thirty (30) days of the determination thereof;

provided, however, that any claim for adjustment shall be made within

six (6) months of the production month in which the claimed error

occurred. The time for dispute or resolution of the claim shall be
