3.1 Installation and Operation. Transporter will install, maintain and

operate at its own expense, at or near each Receipt or Delivery

Point, a measuring station properly equipped with meters and other

necessary measuring equipment and any related measurement and

interconnection facilities; provided, however, that Transporter

may require at its option that Shipper bear the expense of

furnishing and installing such equipment in any instance in which

Shipper requests a new or additional Receipt Point or Delivery

Point for Shipper's convenience. Unless otherwise mutually agreed

upon, such measuring equipment will be of a type generally

accepted in industry practice by which the Volume of Gas received

from and delivered to Shipper will be measured. Where orifice

meters are used, they will be installed and operated in accordance

with ANSI/API 2530, September 1985, and any modifications and

amendments thereof, and applied in a practical manner. Where

positive displacement meters, turbine meters, ultrasonic meters,

or other measuring devices are used, they will be installed and

operated in accordance with then-current American Gas Association

recommendations, where available. Btu measuring equipment will be

installed by Transporter at a location or locations where the

Total Heating Value of the Gas received and delivered by

Transporter can be satisfactorily determined. Btu measurement may

also be determined by Gas samples.


3.2 Check Measuring Equipment. Shipper may install, maintain and

operate, at its own expense, such check measuring equipment as

desired, provided that such equipment will not be installed on

property containing Transporter's measuring equipment at or near

the Receipt or Delivery Points. However, measurement of Gas for

purposes of this tariff will be done by means of the measuring

equipment installed pursuant to Paragraph 3.1, except in cases

specifically provided to the contrary in this Section 3.


3.3 Notice of Equipment Tests. The party operating the measurement

facilities will give notice to the other party of the time and

location of all tests of Gas delivered hereunder or of any

equipment used in measuring or determining the nature or quality

of such Gas, in order that such other party may conveniently have

its representative present. Upon request and thirty (30) days

written notice, each party will submit to the other its records,
