4.3 Right to be Present


Company, Shipper or a Balancing Party 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 the other's measuring equipment used in measuring or checking

the measurement of deliveries of gas under the Transportation Agreement. The

records from such measuring equipment shall remain the property of their owner,

but, upon request, each will submit to the other its records and charts,

together with calculations therefrom, for inspection and verification, subject

to return within ten days after receipt thereof.


4.4 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 quantity of gas delivered under the

Transportation Agreement.


4.5 Calibration and Test of Meters


The accuracy of Company's, Shipper's or Balancing Party's measuring equipment

shall be verified at reasonable intervals and, if requested, in the presence of

representatives of Company, Shipper or Balancing Party, but no party shall be

required to verify the accuracy of such equipment more frequently than once in

any thirty day period. In the event that a party shall notify the other 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 such special test, if called for, shall be borne by the

requesting party if the measuring equipment tested is found to be in error not

more than two percent.


If, upon test, 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.


If, upon test, any measuring equipment shall be found to be inaccurate by an

amount exceeding two percent, at a recording corresponding to the average

hourly rate of flow for the period since the last preceding test, then any

previous recordings of such equipment shall be corrected to zero error for any

period which is known definitely, but in case the period is not known or agreed

upon, such correction shall be for a period extending over one-half of the time

elapsed since the date of the last test, not exceeding a correction period of

sixteen days.
