Value and heating power goes approximately by weight.

Gas is about one-thousandth of the density of liquid.

1 cubic meter = 100 litres, 1 barrel = almost 160 litres.

One trillion m3 of gas = 1 billion m3 of oil = 630 million barrels approx, could be anything from 500 to 800 depending on the precise composition.
