Math equations used to manually calculate gas flow


outcomes
MMSCFD to Sm3/h is calculated as:
Sm^3/hr of gas equals =

MMSCFD * 1,000,000 * 288.15


24 * 35.3147 * 288.81
Where:
288.15 = 15C expressed in Kelvin (see below)

288.81 = 60F expressed in Kelvin

24 = hours per day gas flow time

35.3147 = ft3 per m3

MMSCFD to Nm3/h is calculated as:


Nm^3/hr of gas equals =

MMSCFD * 1,000,000 * 273.15


24 * 35.3147 * 288.81
Where:

273.15 = 0C expressed in Kelvin (see below)

288.81 = 60F expressed in Kelvin

24 = hours per day gas flow time

35.3147 = ft3 per m3
