2. Check measuring equipment. Check measuring equipment shall be limited to one

Transporter, one Shipper and one Operator where each may install, maintain and

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

that such equipment shall be so installed as not to interfere with the operation

of the primary measuring equipment or the operation of the facility or the other

party's measuring equipment.


3. Right to be present: Transporter, Shipper or Operator shall have the right to

have representatives present at the time of any installing, reading, cleaning,

changing, repairing, inspecting, testing, calibrating, or adjusting done in

connection with another party's measuring equipment used in measuring or

checking the measurement of deliveries of gas under a gas sales or

transportation contract. The records from such measuring equipment shall remain

the property of their owner, but upon request each will submit to the others its

records, together with calculations therefore, for inspection and verification,

subject to return within ten days after receipt thereof.


4. Care required: All installations of measuring equipment applying to or

affecting deliveries of gas shall be made in such manner as to permit an

accurate determination of the quantity of gas delivered and ready verification

of the accuracy of measurement. Care shall be exercised by both parties in the

installation, maintenance and operation of pressure regulating equipment so as

to prevent any inaccuracy in the determination of the volume of gas delivered

under the gas sales contract or the transportation contract.


5. Calibration and test of meters: The accuracy of Transporter's, Shipper's or

Operator's measuring equipment shall be verified at reasonable intervals, and

if requested, in the presence of representatives of Transporter, Shipper or

Operator but no party shall be required to verify the accuracy of equipment more

frequently than once in any thirty-day period. In the event that a party shall

notify the others that it desires a special test of any measuring equipment the

parties shall cooperate to secure a prompt verification of the accuracy of such

equipment. The expense of any special test shall be borne by the requesting

party if the measuring equipment tested is found to be in error by not more than

two percent.


If, upon testing, any measuring equipment is found to be in error by not more

than two percent, previous recordings of such equipment shall be considered

accurate in computing deliveries of gas, but such equipment shall be adjusted

at once to record accurately.
