What is LPG?

LPG is the abbreviation of Liquefied Petroleum Gas. Like all fossil fuels, it is a non-renewable source of energy. It is extracted from crude oil and natural gas. the main composition of LPG are hydrocarbons containing three or four carbon atoms. The normal components of LPG thus are propane and Butane.

LPG is an environmentally friendly source of energy with a wide range of applications: domestic (heating, cooking, hot water production), industrial, agricultural, catering and automotive fuel.

LPG is used in hundreds of applications by millions of users throughout the world. When LPG is burnt it produces the cleanest emissions of all oil-based products, with a low carbon dioxide output.

LPG supply comes from two sources: 66% is automatically generated from gas fields as an associated gas when natural gas is extracted from the reservoir. A balance of 34% comes from crude oil refining as a by-product of the cracking process. With refinery capacity growing and strong grows in the production of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) the production of LPG will increase substantially over the coming years.
