1,000 MMcf Cost/Unit The calculations in the above
1 Bcf ----------------- x 1,000,000 = cost per 1,000,000 BTU table are approximations.
1,000,000,000,000 Btu BTU/Unit 1 dekatherm is actually slightly
1,000,000,000 MBtu less than one MMBtu; however
1,000,000 MMBtu Example #1: Cost of Propane on a Per Dekatherm basis for purposes of the above
10,000,000 Therm chart, we have rounded the
1,000,000 Dekatherm $.70 / Gallon numbers.
---------------------- x 1,000,000 = $ 7.6484 per 1,000,000 BTU
91,523 BTU/Gal $ 7.6484 per MMBtu or Dth
HEATING VALUES TABLE
Propane at $.70/gallon is equal to the burner tip price of $7.64/dth for natural gas

Gasoline 125,000 Btus / gallon
#2 Oil 138,500 Btus / gallon $.60 / Gallon
#4 Oil 145,850 Btus / gallon ---------------------- x 1,000,000 = $ 4.3321 per 1,000,000 BTU
