WHAT IS CALORIFIC VALUE?
- Calorific value is defined as the amount of heat produced by the complete combustion of a material or fuel. It is measured in units of energy per amount of material, e.g. Btu, SCM, Joule, Kcal etc. 1 Kcal is equal to 1000 Cal.
WHAT IS MMBTU?
- MMBtu Stands for “Metric Million British Thermal Unit” – it is a traditional unit of heat or energy value, which is widely associated with measurement of natural gas in the energy terms worldwide.
DEFINITION OF MMBTU
- A British Thermal Unit (Btu) is defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound (0.454 kg) of water by 1° F (0.557 ° C) at a pressure of one atmosphere. When 1 Btu is represented in a unit of million, it is termed as Metric Million British Thermal Unit (MMBtu).
RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN STANDARD CUBIC METER (SCM) AND MMBTU
- 1 MMBtu is equivalent to 2,51,996 Kcal or 2,52,000 for the sake of simple calculation.
- Hence, if 1 SCM of PNG has 9880 Kcal, then 1 MMBTU equals to: 25.50 SCM
