millions de Btu


Explanation:
1) The article is at fault for using small "mmm" instead of capital MM.
mm means millimetres, and that would be like saying kilometres of megajoules! In energy-speak MM means 1000x1000 i.e. one million.

2) The official abbreviation for the British thermal unit is "btu", but few people take notice of this and "Btu" has become the de facto standard - and in fact is more logical. A Google search shows that Btu is now used in at least 90% of cases and BTU in the most others.
