4.4 Calibration and test of meters: The accuracy of Transporter's or

Shipper's measuring equipment shall be verified at reasonable

intervals and, if requested, in the presence of representatives of

the other party, but neither party shall be required to verify the

accuracy of such equipment more frequently than once in any

thirty-day period. In the event either 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 (2%), 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 (2%), 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 that 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 exceeding a correction

period of sixteen days.


If Transporter elects to rely on the Delivering Pipeline's

measurements of quantities or heat values for gas transported in

Transporter's system, then Transporter or Shipper may request

verification of measuring equipment by the Delivering Pipeline.

Shipper shall coordinate with Transporter any requests made by

Shipper to the Delivering Pipeline and Transporter shall have a right

to be notified of and attend any tests made by the Delivering

Pipeline of equipment that measures deliveries to Transporter.
