MMBTU to MCF is a classic conversion for natural gas. Converting MMBTU to MCF of natural gas is fairly easy; it’s almost a 1-to-1 relationship (only a 3.7% difference, as we will see further on).
To help you out, we used MMBTU to MCF formula to create a free-for-all MMBTU To MCF Calculator. Below the calculator, you will also find MMBTU (from 0.1 MMBTU to 10,000 MBTU) converted to MCF and summarized in a neat chart.
First of all, let’s have a look at both of these units we are converting:
- MMBTU stands for Metric Million British Thermal Unit. Basically, MMBTU is equal to 1,000,000 BTU (million BTUs). BTU or British Thermal Unit is a basic unit of heat content we use in HVAC. MMBTU is primarily used for denoting the heat content of natural gas.
- MCF stands for Thousand Cubic Feet. This is a unit for volume, mostly used for expressing the volume of natural gas. 1 MCF is equal to 1000 BTU; that ‘M’ in MCF is a roman numeral for thousand or 1000.
To adequately convert MMBTU to MCF, we need to use to following 3 metric relationships (3rd one is the key):
- MMBTU = 1,000,000 BTU.
- MCF = 1000 Cubic Feet.
- 1 Cubic Foot Of Natural Gas = 1037 BTU.
If 1 cubic foot of natural gas is equal to 1037 BTU, then 1000 cubic feet (1 MCF) is equal to 1,037,000 BTU. Since MMBTU is a unit denoting 1,000,000 BTU, we can see that 1 MCF is equal to 1.037 MMBTU (only a 3.7% difference). That means that 1 MMBTU is equal to 0.96432 MCF (1/1.037 = 0.96432).
We can write the MMBTU to MCF conversion formula like this:
MCF = MMBTU / 1.037
To illustrate how this formula works, let’s use it in action. How many MCF do we need for 20 MMBTU? Just insert that 20 MMBTU into the equation like this:
MCF (20 MMBTU) = 20 / 1.037 = 19.29 MCF Of Natural Gas
Here you have it: 20 MMBTU is equal to 19.29 MCF.
This is just one example. You can convert any number of MMBTU to MCF with the following MMBTU To MCF Calculator. On top of that, we have converted MMBTU from 0.1 MMBTU to 10,000 MMBTU to MCF, and summarized it in a chart (found below the calculator).
