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
