3. Right to be present: Transporter, Shipper or an OBA 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 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. 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 Transportation Agreement.


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