3.7 Measuring Equipment. Unless otherwise agreed upon, Shipper

will cause to be provided, maintained, and operated

necessary offshore platforms and measuring and regulating

stations equipped with flow meters, continuous Gas samplers

and other necessary measuring equipment by which its volumes

of Gas delivered to UTOS hereunder shall be determined.

Unless otherwise agreed upon, UTOS shall cause to be

installed, operated and maintained at its expense a

measuring and regulating station or stations equipped with

flow meters, Gas analyzer and other necessary measuring

equipment for the measurement of Gas redelivered to or for

the account of Shipper; such measuring and regulating

stations shall be so installed at the northern terminus of

the System or one shall be installed at the mutually

agreeable points onshore in the vicinity of Johnson's Bayou,

Louisiana to provide measurement on a compatible basis. All

flow, measuring, testing, and related equipment shall be of

standard manufacture and type approved by UTOS, and the

size, type, and specifications of such equipment shall also

be approved by UTOS before same is fabricated and

installed. In the event Shipper fails to comply with UTOS'

measurement standards for installation and or operation and

maintenance of such facilities, as described in Sections

other records together with calculations therefrom, for

inspection, subject to return within 30 Days after receipt

thereof. Reasonable care shall be exercised in the

installation, maintenance, and operation of measuring
