Because gas is a natural product, its composition, and hence its calorific value, vary according to its source. Natural gas suppliers in the Netherlands do not charge their customers according to the volume of gas supplied, but according to the volume of energy supplied. They calculate this energy supplied by using the calorific values of the gas supplied. This is known as calorific adjustment and only the supplier knows how the adjustment is calculated.
