3. Right to be Present. Transporter and Shipper 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 any Gas Transportation Contract

between Transporter and Shipper. 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, therefore, for

inspection and verification, subject to return within thirty (30) 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. Reasonable care shall be exercised by both

parties in the installation, maintenance and operation of pressure regulating

equipment or compressors so as to prevent any inaccuracy in the determination

of the volume of gas delivered under any Gas Transportation



5. Calibration and Test of Meters. The accuracy of Transporter's

measuring equipment shall be verified by Transporter at reasonable intervals,

and if requested, in the presence of representative of Shipper, by Transporter

shall not be required to verify the accuracy of such equipment more frequently

than once in any thirty (30) day period. In the event either party shall

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

the expense of any such special test, if called on, shall be borne by Shipper

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

(2) percent.


If upon test, any measuring equipment, including recording calorimeters,

is found to be in error by not more than two (2) percent, previous recording

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 (2) 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 last test, not to exceed a period of

sixteen (16) days.


6. Correction of Metering Errors - Failure of Meters. In the event a

meter is out of service or registering inaccurately, the volume of gas

delivered shall be determined:


a. by using the registration of any check meter or meters, if installed

and accurately registering or, in the absence of (a);


b. by correcting the error if the percentage of error is ascertainable

by calibration, tests or mathematical calculation; or in the absence of both

(a) and (b), then;
