In (ISO/DP 6976:1995) does it make any difference when using real gas LHV instead of ideal gas LHV from total energy consumption perspective? As the real gas volume will be used in the first case and the ideal gas volume for the second?

Lower Heating Value (LHV) as reported for gases, in units like Btu/scf or MJ/m3 are always ideal gas volumes at standard conditions (60°F and 1 atm / 15.6°C and 101.3 kPa).
