The average pressure, temperature, specific gravity, and carbon

dioxide and nitrogen content for the period under consideration

shall be determined so as to calculate a factor for volumetric

adjustment known as the supercompressibility factor, and its

application to volume calculations to effect volumetric

adjustment, shall be in accordance with Transmission Measurement

Committee Reports No. 7, Turbine Metering, or such subsequent

industry standard that may be developed and adopted by UTOS.


(b) Orifice Meters. Orifice meters, if used, shall be installed, and

Gas volumes computed, in accordance with American Gas Association

Report No. 3, latest edition.


(c) Electronic Flow Computers. It is recognized that electronic flow

computers will be utilized for the direct computation of Gas

flows without the use of charts.


(d) Densitometers. If a densitometer is used, the density of the Gas

shall be determined to the nearest .001 of a pound. Calibration

shall be done as directed by UTOS.


(e) New Measurement Techniques. If at any time during the term

hereof, a new method or technique is developed with respect to

Gas measurement or the determination of the factors used in such

Gas measurement, such new method or technique may be substituted

upon mutual agreement thereto by the Parties.


3.8 Location of Check Measuring Equipment. Shipper will cause to be

provided, free of expense to UTOS, the necessary space on offshore

platforms for the installation of check measuring or electronic equipment

and such other equipment, as may be necessary, for the proper control and

operation of the System. Shipper will also grant to UTOS, or cause to be

granted, the right of access to said platforms. UTOS will indemnify

Shipper and hold it harmless from any claims, suits, or other actions of

any kind resulting from any negligent or unauthorized use or access

granted relative to the said platforms.


3.9 Calibration and Test of Meters. The accuracy of all measuring equipment

shall be verified by the owner thereof at reasonable intervals, and if

requested, in the presence of representatives of the other Party

hereunder, but neither Shipper nor UTOS shall be required to verify the

accuracy of such equipment more frequently than once in any 30-day

period. If either Party at any time desires a special test of any

measuring equipment, it will promptly notify the other, and the Parties

shall then cooperate to secure a prompt verification of the accuracy of

such equipment. Transportation and related expenses incurred by Shipper

or UTOS involved in the testing of meters at offshore locations shall be

borne by the Party incurring such expenses.
