82-3-305. Gas to be metered. (a) Well, lease, or unitized property. All gas, when produced or sold, shall be metered with an approved meter of sufficient capacity. Gas may be metered from a lease or unitized property as a whole if it is shown that ratable taking can be maintained. Meters shall not be required for gas produced and used on the lease for development purposes and lease operations or for use in primary dwellings.
(b) Meters: calibration, testing, charts, and records. Each party who owns, maintains, or operates the metering device used to record gas sales from each well or lease in gas fields shall at a minimum test and calibrate the metering device on an annual basis by a method approved by the conservation division and retain the record of the testing and calibration for at least two years. Each party shall also retain for at least two years the original field record consisting of magnetic tapes, meter charts, electronic records, or records of gas purchases. All information retained shall be made available to the conservation division upon request.
(c) By-passes. By-passes shall not be connected around meters in a manner that will permit the improper taking of gas.
(d) Penalties. Each failure to comply with any of the requirements of this regulation shall be punishable by a $1,000 penalty. (Authorized by K.S.A. 55-152; implementing K.S.A. 55-164 and 55-703; effective, T-83-44, Dec. 8, 1982; effective May 1, 1983; amended May 8, 1989; amended Dec. 22, 2006.)
