About Propane

Propane is a hydrocarbon (C3H8) and is sometimes referred to as liquefied petroleum gas, LP-gas, or LPG. Propane is produced from both natural gas processing and crude oil refining, in roughly equal amounts from each source. Most propane used in the United States is produced domestically, with about 15 percent imported from overseas. It is nontoxic, colorless, and virtually odorless. As with natural gas, an identifying odor is added so the gas can be readily detected.

Who Uses Propane?

Propane is used by millions of Americans each day. People use propane in and around their homes for furnaces, water heaters, air conditioners, outdoor grills, fireplaces, and appliances; on farms for uses such as pest control, crop drying, and irrigation pumps; for industrial uses such as forklifts and fleet vehicles; and in millions of commercial establishments, including restaurants and hotels that depend on propane for heating, cooking, and other uses.

Why Propane?

Good value—because it burns hotter and more evenly than other fuels, propane can offer significant savings over the alternatives. Plus, the clean burning properties of propane mean that furnaces often require less maintenance.
Clean—clean-burning propane is approved under the Clean Air Act of 1990 and National Energy Policy Act of 1992. It is released as a gas, so it won’t spill, pool or leave a residue. Propane produces minimal emissions and is not harmful to soil or water.
Reliable—Almost 90 percent of all propane is produced right here in the United States. You can always count on it.
Safe—propane has built-in safety properties along with stringent National Fire Protection (NFPA) safety regulations. It will not ignite when combined with air unless the source of ignition reaches 940°F.
