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

conversion factor between dekatherms and gigajoules is 1.055056

gigajoules per dekatherm and between dekatherms and gigacalories

is 0.251996 gigacalories per dekatherm. The standard Btu is the

International Btu, which is also called the Btu(IT); the standard

joule is the joule specified in the SI system of units. The

International Btu is specified for use in the gas measurement

standards of the American Gas Association, the American Petroleum

Institute, the Gas Processors Association and the American Society

for Testing Materials. For non-commercial purposes, these

associations note that the exact conversion factor is

1.05505585262 Gigajoules per Dekatherm." NAESB WGQ 1.3.14.
