How to convert1 barrel oil (bbl oil) = 0.158987295 cubic meter (cu m). Barrel Oil (bbl oil) is a unit of Volume used in Standard system. Cubic Meter (cu m) is a unit of Volume used in Metric system. Oil Barrels: A Unit of VolumeOil barrels are a unit of volume that are used to measure crude oil and petroleum products, such as gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, etc. They are different from fluid barrels, which are used to measure other liquids, such as beer, wine, water, etc. Oil barrels are also different from barrel of oil equivalent (BOE), which is a unit of energy based on the approximate energy released by burning one barrel of crude oil. Definition of Oil BarrelsAn oil barrel is defined as 42 US gallons or 0.159 cubic meters in the US customary system of measurement. It is equivalent to 34.9723 imperial gallons or 158.987 liters in the imperial system. An oil barrel is also equal to 5.6146 cubic feet or 6.2898 oil barrels in the metric system. History of Oil BarrelsThe origin of the term barrel as a unit of measure is uncertain, but it may have derived from the French word baril, which means a small cask or keg. Barrels have been used since ancient times to store and transport various goods, especially liquids and dry grains. The size and shape of barrels varied depending on the type and quantity of the goods, the availability of materials, and the customs of different regions and countries. The use of oil barrels as a unit of measure dates back to the 19th century, when the petroleum industry emerged in the United States and other countries. The first oil wells produced oil that was stored in wooden barrels that were readily available from the whiskey industry. The standard size of these barrels was 42 US gallons, which was also the size of a tierce, a unit of measure for wine and salt. The use of oil barrels as a unit of measure became more widespread as the oil market developed and expanded globally. Oil barrels were convenient for measuring and transporting large quantities of oil across long distances by rail, ship, pipeline, etc. Oil barrels were also used for pricing and trading oil in various markets and exchanges. How to Convert Oil BarrelsTo convert oil barrels to other units of volume, one can use the following formulas:
Where Oil Barrels are UsedOil barrels are mainly used in the United States and some other countries that still use the US customary system of measurement. They are often used for measuring and reporting the production, consumption, reserves, and trade of crude oil and petroleum products. In some countries that use the metric system of measurement, such as Canada and Australia, oil barrels are sometimes used as an informal or approximate unit of volume for certain types of crude oil or petroleum products. For example, in Canada, heavy crude oil is sometimes sold by the barrel, which is equivalent to about 159 liters or 0.159 cubic meters. In some countries that have their own traditional units of volume based on barrels or similar containers, such as India and China, oil barrels are not commonly used or recognized. Instead, they use units such as tonnes (about 7.33 barrels), kilolitres (about 6.29 barrels), or tonnes of oil equivalent (about 7.1 barrels).

Cubic Meters  A Unit of VolumeDefinition of the Cubic MeterA cubic meter (symbol m3 or meter cube) is a unit of volume that is used in the International System of Units (SI). It is defined as the volume of a cube with sides of 1 meter (3 feet, 36 inches, or 0.9144 meters) in length. One cubic meter is equal to 1000 liters, 35.3 cubic feet, or 1.3 cubic yards. History of the Cubic MeterThe cubic meter is derived from the meter, which is the base unit of length in the SI system. The meter was originally defined in 1793 as one tenmillionth of the distance from the equator to the North Pole along a meridian through Paris. The meter was later redefined several times based on different physical standards, such as a platinumiridium bar and a wavelength of light. The current definition of the meter, adopted in 1983, is based on the speed of light in vacuum The cubic meter was first used as a unit of volume for measuring water supply in France in the late 18th century. It was also used for measuring gas, wood, and other substances. The cubic meter was adopted as a standard unit of measure in the SI system in 1960. It is still widely used today for various purposes, such as science, engineering, commerce, and everyday life. How to Convert Cubic MetersTo convert cubic meters to other units of volume, you need to multiply or divide by the appropriate conversion factor. Here are some common conversion factors and examples:
