Exclamation Urgent: Convert LNG From Metric Tons To Cubic Meters M3

Hey guys and girls...

I need to convert 10 Million Metric Tons of LNG to Cubic Meters (M3) of LNG.

I tried a few conversion tables but I don't think my calculations were correct.

Thank you in advance

This source gives a density of 0.40 - 0.42 t/m
http://www.cng.cz/en/natural_gas/alt...tural_gas.html

Using 0.41 t/m, about 24.4 million cubic meters. If you know density of your gas, use it instead. That is the volume as a liquid. Allowed to warm and become a gas again, about 600 x the volume.

JohnS Thank You So Much

So do I need to multiply 10,000,000 by 24.4 to get my answer?

Thank you

No. You need to divide 10 million tonnes by 0.41 t/m to get 24.4 million meters cubed.

Gas from different wells will vary slightly, so you should get a density figure for YOUR gas, not use a typical figure.

Thank you again...now you see why my calculations were off.

Convert 8 cubic meters to metric Tons.

Using the density above
0.41 t/m x 8 m = 3.28 t
