There is no exact value, because the density of gas depends on additional factors. You can get a fairly good estimate though.

The Physics Factbook lists energy density of Natural Gas at about 34.6 to 38.3 megajoule per cubic meter.

That is about 9.6 to 10.6 kilowatt hours

The answer is : 11.06 Kwh

1M =35.32 FT
1 FT (NG) = 1020 BTU,..35.32 X 1020 = 36,026 BTU/M

1kWh = 3413 BTU
36,026/3413 = 10.55 kWh/M

It varies but if you assume that 1 cubic foot of natural gas is about 1000BTU then you will arrive at a figure of 1cubic meter of natural gas is about 10.3 kwH of energy.

This is the best answer I've seen and so I agree that 1 cubic metre of natural gas (but this assumes all NG is same calorific value) is 10.55 kwh.
