2.1 Unit of Measurement and Basis of Measurement of Gas: (Continued)


(e) Calibration and Test of Gas Meters: If either Shipper or Paiute

shall at any time have reason to doubt the accuracy of any

gauge, measuring device, or other appliance used in measuring

the gas received or delivered, it shall notify the other in

writing, and within a reasonable time thereafter the measuring

device shall be tested in the presence of both parties.


(f) Correction of Gas Metering Errors: If any measuring device used

to obtain the quantity of gas received or delivered shall have

been found on test to be in error by more than two percent

(2%), the amount of gas which shall have been received or

delivered during a period commencing not more than thirty (30)

days prior to the date of notification mentioned in Section

2.1(e) hereof shall be recalculated and corrected back to a

zero percent (0%) error.


(g) The cutoff for the closing of measurement is five (5) business

days after the business month. In cases where actual data is

missing or late, Paiute will use an estimate. Paiute will treat

any difference between actual data and estimated data as a

prior period adjustment.


(h) Paiute will treat measurement prior period adjustments by

taking it back to the production month. A meter adjustment

becomes a prior period adjustment after the fifth (5th)

business day following the business month. For reporting

measurement prior period adjustments, Paiute will report it

using a restated line item with new total quantity for the day

and the month. Measurement corrections will be processed within

six (6) months of the production month with a (3) month

rebuttal period. This standard shall not apply in the case of

deliberate omission or misrepresentation or mutual mistake of

fact. Parties' other statutory or contractual rights shall not

otherwise be dismissed by this standard.
