LPG is a derivative of two major energy processes: gas liquids extraction and crude oil refining. A significant number of gas wells produce propane and butane, accounting for approximately 60% of global LPG volumes. The remaining 40% is extracted from oil refining. The recent boom in shale gas extraction has transformed LPG from a by-product to a globally sought after commodity
LPG is a multi-purpose energy source with more than 1,000 applications. It is used in business, industry, transportation, farming, power generation, cooking, heating and for recreational purposes.
