Newbie here. What is MCF at casing head mean?
Two things: (1) Everybody here was a Newbie at some point and (2) there are no stupid questions.
MCF stands for Thousand Cubic Feet (Roman numeral “M” for 1,000, “CF” for cubic feet). In simpler language, a cube of natural gas 10 ft x 10 ft x 10 ft.
That’s what “Unit” it is measured by, like a “Barrel of Oil”, although some people prefer to use the “Cubic Feet” measurement because it sounds so much higher [“1,000,000 Cubic Feet” sounds much greater than “1,000 MCF”].
I’m sure plenty of others here on The Forum can explain this with greater accuracy, but as I understand it, “At the Casing Head” means at the top of the Production Pipe or Production Casing - the lowest part of the surface production equipment at the top of a Well.
Hope this helps!
Thank you for your response. Trying to interpret this new language and information. Kate
