1.10 The term "Dth" shall mean dekatherm and shall be the

quantity of heat energy equal to 1,000,000 British thermal units

(MMBtu). Dth is the standard quantity for Nominations,

Confirmations, Imbalance and Scheduled Quantities in the United

to 1,000,000,000 calories. For commercial purposes, the standard

conversion factor between Dth and GJ is 1.055056 GJs per Dth and

between dekatherms and GCs is 0.251996 per Dth. The standard Btu

is the international Btu, or Btu(IT); the standard joule is the

joule specified in the SI system of units.
