Hello Everybody,

I would like to know, how to convert MMSCFD into M3/hr. The problem is that I always get confused with this calculation.

Thanks,

Jatinder

1 MMCFD = 1180 M3/hr

1 MMCFD = 1180 M3/hr

@Shan - Thankyou very much for your response but may I ask the steps please?

1 MMSCFD = 1,000,000 SCFD * 0.02832 M3/CF = 28320 M3/D * 1/24 Hr/D = 1180 M3/hr

Shan / Jatinder:

The calculations shown are wrong.  An engineer cannot discuss nor calculate based on an undefined temperature and pressure for the compressible fluid (gas) in question.

You must first define what you mean by "Standard" conditions as to temperature and pressure.  Then, and only then, can one proceed to calculate the equivalent metric volumetric volume.

This subject has been discussed countless times in many prior Forum threads and can be found through our SEARCH machine.  Other engineering Forums - such as Eng-Tips - have dealt with this same subject and come to the same conclusion.

This is just a simple volume unit conversion question.  Please don't make thing complicate.  I did eliminate "S" (Standard) in my first post and just forgot the elimination in the second post.

Dear,

To Shan: I think you are wrong. look at the initial post. if both were in the same basis (MMSCFD to SCMH) what you did would have been perfectly correct. follow the link http://www.cheresour...as-line-sizing/. throughout this post in the link you will realize that I did not get the right pipe size because I fail to convert the unit that we are talking about here appropriately. if it was that simple what is the post doing here

kindly,

This just reinforces a comment I made months ago: How many engineers does it take to make a proper conversion from one set of units to another? To be sure, always go to the proper point of reference. For this particular conversion, I think I have a web page that does the conversion from standard ft3 to normal m3. And the definitions are included. Maybe Katmar has software to make this conversion, too. Every engineer should have Katmar's software.

At the risk of making this complicated:  AMEN, brother.

Posting it or not is up to "OP",

Responding it or not is up to me,

Understanding it or not is up to you,

Judging it right or wrong is up to god, who governs "OP", you, and me.
