Section 4



4.5 Inspection, Tests, Calibration and Adjustments of Meters - All

measurement equipment shall be inspected, tested, calibrated and

adjusted by the measuring party thereof as often as Gulf South

deems necessary, but not more often than once each month unless

otherwise agreed to by the parties. The above limitations do not

apply in the event of an equipment failure; for example,

malfunction of the flow computer, transducers, or primary

measurement device. The measuring party shall give notice to the

other party of the time of all tests of meters sufficiently in

advance of the holding of the test so that the other party may

conveniently have its representative present; provided, however,

that if the measuring party has given such notice to the other

party and the other party is not present at the time specified,

then the party giving the notice may proceed with the test as

though the other party were present. Following any test, any

measuring equipment found to be inaccurate to any degree shall be

adjusted immediately to measure accurately. Each party shall

have the right at any time to challenge the accuracy of any

measuring equipment used and may request additional tests.


If, upon testing, the challenged equipment is found to be in

error, then it shall be repaired and calibrated. Unless the

parties otherwise agree in writing (e.g. pursuant to a

measurement, interconnect, or operational balancing agreement)

the cost of any such special testing, repair and calibration

shall be borne by the party requiring the special test if the

percentage of inaccuracy is found to be two percent (2%) or less;

otherwise, the cost shall be borne by the party operating the

challenged measuring equipment. If, upon any test, the metering

equipment in the aggregate is found to be inaccurate by two

percent (2%) or more, registrations thereof shall be corrected

for a period extending back to the time such inaccuracy occurred,

if such time is ascertainable, and if not ascertainable, then

back one-half of the time elapsed since the last date of

calibration. If for any reason, meters are out of service or out

of repair, so that the quantity of gas delivered cannot be

ascertained or computed from the readings thereof, the quantity

of gas delivered during the period such meters are out of service

or out of repair shall be estimated and agreed upon by
