14.6 Measurement Equipment Inaccuracy and Failure.


The quantity of gas received and delivered by Pipeline and

delivered to Customer or for Customer's account hereunder

during periods when the measurement equipment is out of

service or registering inaccurately shall be estimated as



(a) If, upon test, any measurement equipment, the readings

of which are used in the registration, integration or

computation of quantities of gas hereunder, is found

to be in error to the extent that it introduces not

more than one percent (1%) measurement error in the

individual measurement equipment affected, previous

records of such equipment shall be considered



(b) If, upon test, any such above measurement equipment is

found to be in error, to the extent that it causes the

registered or computed quantities of the instrument(s)

so affected to be in error, by an amount exceeding one

percent (1%) at a recording corresponding to the

average hourly rate of flowthrough the instrument(s)

in the period since the last preceding test, then any

registrations, integration or computed quantities of

such instrument(s) affected shall be corrected to zero

(0) error for any part of the period since the last

test in which such error is known to have existed or

which may be agreed upon by representatives of the

parties. In case the period of such error is not know

definitely or agreed upon, such correction shall be

for a period of one-half (1/2) of the elapsed time

since the date of the last test, but not exceeding a

correction period of sixteen (16) Days where orifice

measurement equipment is used in the computation of

quantity and not exceeding forty-five (45) Days where

other measurement equipment is used; and
