Introduction to LPG

Liquefied Petroleum Gas is a vital source of energy for millions of people around the world. LP Gas consists mainly of propane and butane, which are gases at atmospheric temperature and pressure. When subjected to modest pressure or refrigeration, these gases liquefy making it possible to transport and store LP Gas as a liquid, yet use it as a gas. This requires pressurized cylinders and containers, which must be safely and carefully handled.

LP Gas is a clean and portable fuel. It provides heat and power in remote areas as well as in densely populated urban areas. Because of its portability, it is not dependent on transmission lines or pipeline grids. Its most popular use is for cooking and heating in the residential and commercial segments. The agriculture market uses LP Gas for crop and animal production, and powering farm equipment such as irrigation pump engines.

Industry relies on LP Gas for heating, drying, and powering industrial trucks etc. In response to growing concerns of urban air pollution and greenhouse gas formation, the use of LP Gas as an automotive fuel (Auto Gas) is becoming increasingly popular.
