What are Ccf, Mcf, Btu, and therms? How do I convert natural gas prices from $/Ccf or Mcf to $/Btu or $/therm?


C        — equals one hundred(100).

Ccf      — equals the volume of 100 cubic feet (cf) of natural gas.

M        — equals one thousand (1,000).

MM      — equals one million (1,000,000).

Mcf      — equals the volume of 1,000 cubic feet (cf) of natural gas.

$ per Ccf divided by 1.037 =            $ per therm

$ per therm multiplied by 1.037 =   $ per Ccf

$ per Mcf divided by 1.037 =            $ per MMBtu

$ per Mcf divided by 10.37 =            $ per therm

$ per MMBtu multiplied by 1.037 =  $ per Mcf

$ per therm multiplied by 10.37 =   $ per Mcf

$ per MMBtu multiplied by 1 =         $ per dekatherm
