What is LPG?

The basic idea of LPG is simple. If you’re far from a gas main (the ordinary system of natural gas supplied to buildings through a network of pipes), simply get your gas from a large fixed tank or a portable canister or bottle. As its name suggests, LPG is a fossil fuel closely linked to oil. About 60 percent of the LPG people use is extracted directly from the Earth as a byproduct of drilling for ordinary natural gas and oil. The rest is manufactured indirectly from petroleum (crude oil) during refining, and a tiny but growing amount (known as BioLPG or renewable LPG) is also produced from biomass or waste. 

How is LPG different from LNG?

LPG is not the same thing as LNG (liquified natural gas). Natural gas is mostly methane (with small amounts of various other gases mixed in), and LNG is essentially just a compressed, liquified version of that. As we’ve just seen, LPG is mostly propane and butane.

LPG reaches the domestic consumer in cylinders under relatively low pressures. The largest part of the LPG produced is used in central heating systems, and the next largest as raw material for chemical plants. LPG commonly is used as fuel for gas barbecue grills and gas cooktops and ovens, for gas fireplaces, and in portable heaters. In Europe, LPG water heaters are common. It is also used as an engine fuel and for backup generators. Unlike diesel, LPG can be stored nearly indefinitely without degradation. We are committed to driving the adoption of gas as major domestic fuel used in Nigeria, one household at a time.
