If upon any test of the measuring facilities the

percentage of inaccuracy exceeds two percent (2%), then the

registrations thereof shall be corrected for a period

extending back in time to the beginning of the inaccuracy,

if such time is ascertainable, and if not ascertainable,

then the registrations thereof shall be corrected back

one-half (1/2) of the time elapsed since the last date of

calibration; however, in no event shall the registrations be

corrected for a period extending back in time more than

sixteen (16) days.


In the event that the amount of gas delivered and/or

redelivered hereunder cannot be reasonably ascertained or

computed from the measuring equipment, then the volume of

the gas received and/or delivered, as applicable, during

such period shall be determined by using the registration of

any check meter or meters, if installed and accurately

registering; or by estimating the quantity of gas on the

basis of past receipts and/or deliveries, whichever is

applicable, made hereunder during periods when similar

conditions existed and the meter was registering accurately.


3.9 Inspection of Records. The source documents and

data from the measuring equipment shall remain the property

of the party or parties operating such equipment at the MRT

receipt and/or delivery point(s) and shall be kept on file

for a period of not less than three (3) years. Volume

statements required for any verification of statements or

charges pursuant to Section 17 of these General Terms and

Conditions shall also be retained for a period of not less

than three (3) years. At any time within such period, upon

request of either party, the other party will submit source

documents from the measuring equipment, together with

calculations therefrom, for the other party's inspection and

verification subject to return to the party operating such

equipment within thirty (30) days from receipt thereof.


3.10 Closing of Measurement. If a party other than MRT

is in control of measurement information required for

preparation of statements and invoices, the primary

measuring party shall cause such information to be received

by MRT such that MRT can close measurement no later than

five (5) business days after the end of the applicable month

of gas flow.
