One cubic foot of natural gas equals how many BTU's???Also a 500 gallon tank filled with natural gas compressed @ 75 psi. will contain how much cubic feet of gas??

I have some natural gas wells on a farm and I am trying to size a storage facility, to compress natural gas.

 1 Cubic Foot has approximately 1020 BTU's

 There are 100 Cubic Feet per CCF or about 102,000 BTU's

 There are 1000 Cubic Feet per MCF or about 1,020,000 BTU's

 A Therm is 100,000 BTU's or just slightly less than a CCF

 A DekaTherm is 1,000,000BTU's or just slightly less than an MCF.
