LPG is a by-product of oil & natural gas production and refining. It is a clean burning energy source recognised for its transportability and ease of use relative to alternative forms of stand-alone energy.
LPG use falls into three broad categories:
- Residential and commercial applications
- Industrial applications
- Agricultural uses
In the residential and commercial markets, LPG is used primarily for cooking, space heating, and water heating. Industrial customers typically use LPG in the production process (in kilns, furnaces etc.) and to power engines and propel vehicles such as warehouse forklifts.
Agricultural users consume LPG to dry crops, rear poultry, and control weeds among other applications.
