BARRELS OF OIL EQUIVALENT: The term âboeâ or barrels of oil equivalent can be misleading, especially if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas per barrel of oil equivalent (6 Mcf: 1 barrel) is based on an energy equivalent conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent an equivalence of value at the wellhead. In addition, since the value ratio based on the current price of crude oil, relative to natural gas, is significantly different from the energy equivalence of 6: 1; using a 6: 1 conversion ratio can be misleading as a value indication.
