3.5 Measuring Equipment. Unless otherwise agreed

upon, Transporter will install, maintain and

operate or cause to be installed, maintained and

operated measuring stations equipped with orifice

meters and other necessary metering and measuring

equipment by which the volumes of natural gas

received and delivered under an executed Service

Agreement shall be determined. Orifice meters

shall be installed and operated in accordance

with said Gas Measurement Committee Report No. 3.

Shipper may install check measuring equipment at

its own cost and expense; provided, however, that

such equipment shall be so installed as not to

interfere with the operations of Transporter.

Transporter and Shipper, in the presence of each

other, shall have access to the other's measuring

equipment at all reasonable times, but the

reading, calibrating and adjusting thereof and

the changing of charts shall be done only by the

equipment owner or such owner's representative,

unless otherwise agreed upon. Both Transporter

and Shipper shall have the right to be present at

the time of any installing, reading, cleaning,

changing, repairing, inspecting, testing,

calibrating, or adjusting done in connection with

the other's measuring equipment; provided,

however, failure of either Transporter or Shipper

to witness such an operation shall not affect the

validity of such operation in any way. The

records from such measuring equipment shall

remain the property of their owner, but upon

request, each will submit to the other its

records and charts, together with calculations

therefrom, for inspection, subject to return

within thirty (30) days after receipt thereof.

The measurement equipment of Shipper shall be for

check purposes only and, except as expressly

provided in an executed Service Agreement, shall

not be used in the measurement of natural gas for

purposes of such Service Agreement.


3.6 Calibration and Test of Meters. The accuracy of

all measuring equipment shall be verified by

Transporter at reasonable intervals, and, if

requested, in the presence of representatives of

Shipper, but neither Transporter nor Shipper

shall be required to verify the accuracy of such

equipment more frequently than once in any thirty

(30) day period. If neither Transporter or

Shipper at any time desires a special test of any

measuring equipment, it will promptly notify the

other and Transporter and Shipper shall then

cooperate to secure a prompt verification of the

accuracy of such equipment.


3.7 Correction of Metering Errors. If, upon any

test, any measuring equipment is found to be

inaccurate, such equipment shall be adjusted

immediately to measure accurately. If upon any

test the measuring equipment in the aggregate is

found to be inaccurate by two percent (2%) or

more at a recording corresponding to the average

hourly rate of natural gas flow for the period

since the last preceding test, previous
