Customer notifies the other party that it desires a special

test of any measuring equipment, Pipeline and Customer shall

cooperate to secure a prompt verification of the accuracy of

24.3 Correction of Metering Equipment - Any meter found, on test,

to register not more than two percent (2%) high or low shall

be deemed to be correct as to past measurements but shall be

corrected to record accurately. In the event any meter, upon

test, proves to be more than two percent (2%) high or low,

adjustment shall be made to fully correct the readings of such

meters; provided, however, that if the period in which the

error occurred is not known or cannot be agreed upon, then the

period shall be deemed to be either the last half of the time

elapsed since the last test, or the last thirty (30) days,

whichever is the lesser period. If a meter is out of repair

or is being tested or in the event that Pipeline's meters

become inoperative or manifestly in error and Customer has not

installed a check meter or meters as herein provided, or if

such check meters have been installed and fail accurately to

register or are manifestly in error, then the quantity of gas

delivered during the period Pipeline's meter or meters were

inoperative or manifestly in error shall be determined by

estimating as nearly as possible the quantity of gas delivered

hereunder during like periods under similar conditions when

such meter was registering accurately or correctly within the

tolerance set forth herein.


24.4 Customer shall be entitled to install and operate at its own

expense near the Point(s) of Delivery such meter or meters of

standard type as shall enable Customer to check the amount of

gas delivered. If Customer shall exercise this right of

installing and operating check meters, then in the event of

failure of Pipeline's meters to register accurately at any

time, the registration of Customer's check meters shall be

taken as the current quantity of gas delivered to Customer by
