Propane 101

Propane is produced during natural gas processing and petroleum refining. It’s routinely compressed and stored as a liquid. So you may also hear it called liquefied petroleum gas, LPG or LP. Propane is nontoxic and colorless. In the rare event of a spill, it poses no threat to the surrounding soil, water, or organisms.

Uses of Propane

Propane’s versatility makes it extremely useful in residential and commercial contexts. Homeowners and business enterprises alike use it for heating (both permanent and temporary), water heating, cooking, and powering a variety of appliances. Propane Autogas is also an efficient alternative motor fuel ideal for commercial fleets like delivery trucks, school buses, taxis, and forklifts.
