Globalshift directly converts, or approximates where necessary, all units to industry standards. These are consistently used in the datafiles and in this website










1 Barrel LPG (Propane) = 0.0787 metric tonnes

1 Metric Tonne LPG (Propane) = 12.7 barrels

1 Barrel LPG (Butane) = 0.090 metric tonnes

1 Metric Tonne LPG (Butane) = 11.1 barrels

1 Barrel LPG (average) = 0.086 metric tonnes

1 Metric Tonne LPG (average) = 11.6 barrels

1 Barrel Light Oil (36 degree API) = 0.134 metric tonnes

1 Metric Tonne Light Oil (36 degree API) = 7.45 barrels

1 Barrel Fuel Oil = 0.149 metric tonnes

1 Metric Tonne Fuel Oil = 6.7 barrels























* conversions from volume to weight or equivalent volumes are approximated based on an estimated global average

The standard production unit used by Globalshift is volumetric.

For oil:

Barrels usually given as 000s of barrels per day.

For gas:

Cubic metres usually given as bcm per year.

Gas may be converted volumetrically into barrels of oil equivalent.

The standard length unit used by Globalshift is metric.
