Conversion Calculator

Conversion Calculator

To use the Conversion Calculator, enter the known value into the appropriate field (for example, the number of barrels of crude oil) then press 'Calculate' to show the approximate equivalent values in every other standard unit shown.


Disclaimer

The Santos Conversion Calculator should be used as a guide only as it has been configured to provide approximate measurement conversions through rounding, limiting converted measurements to no more than 5 decimal places and using common product energy compositions in areas in which Santos is active. You will therefore need to undertake your own calculations in the event you require an exact measurement. Santos accepts no responsibility for the use of, or reliance upon the information provided by, the Conversion Calculator.

Glossary/Units

Barrel/bbl
The standard unit of measurement for all production and sales. One barrel equals 159 litres or 35 imperial gallons.

Billion BTU
Billion British Thermal Units. 1BTU sales gas = 1.055KJ
1Therm sales gas = 1.055KJ

BOE
Barrel of oil equivalent.

Choke Sizes
The diameter of the orifice plate (measurement device) through which production (gas, liquid or mixture) is passed. The differential across the orifice plate provides a measure of the fluid rate (gas, liquid or mixture). Choke sizes in Santos are usually given in imperial terms as a fraction of an inch (eg: 1/2 inch, 3/4 inch)

Condensate
Normally exists in the reservoir as gas, but condenses out as a liquid during production.

Cooper Basin Sales Gas
Comprised predominantly of methane and minor ethane.

Joule
The metric unit for energy. The equivalent imperial measure to joules is British Thermal Units (BTU). One kilojoule = 0.9478 BTU.

GJ
Gigajoule =
1 Thousand Megajoules

KBOE
Thousand barrels of oil equivalent.

KJ
Kilojoule

kPa
Pascals are the metric unit for pressure. One kilopascal (kPa) is a thousand Pascals. One kPa is approximately equal to 0.145 pounds per square inch.

LNG
Liquefied natural gas. Conversion factor varies depending on composition of gas.

LPG
Liquefied petroleum gas. Normally comprises propane and butane.

MJ
Megajoule = 1 million joules

MMCF
Million cubic feet

MMCM
Million cubic metres

Pressure
The force per unit area exerted on a container by a fluid within it. Increasing the amount of fluid in the container or the temperature, without changing the volume of the container increases the pressure.

TJ
Terajoule

PJ
Petajoule

PSI
Pounds per square inch
