Home > Glossary > LPG


LPG, or Liquefied Petroleum Gas, is a versatile energy source commonly used in heating appliances, cooking equipment, and vehicles. It is a flammable mixture consisting primarily of propane, butane, and various other hydrocarbon gas liquids. LPG is produced during natural gas processing and oil refining. It’s stored in liquid form under pressure in gas cylinders or tanks, converting to a gas when released.

LPG is favored for its relatively low emissions, high energy efficiency, portability, and convenience. It’s an essential source of energy in areas without access to a natural gas grid and is also used as a petrochemical feedstock.
