General Facts on LPG
What is LPG or LP Gas?
Petroleum Gas (LPG), is the generic name for propane and butane gas.
They are both a mixture of hydrocarbon gases used as a fuel in heating
appliances and vehicles.
Why is it called Liquefied Petroleum Gas?
is because these gases liquefy under moderate pressure and they readily
vaporize upon release of pressure. At normal temperatures and
pressures, LPG will evaporate. Because of this, LPG is stored in steel
tanks. In order to allow for thermal expansion of the liquid gas, these
tanks are filled between 80% and 85% of their capacity.
Where does LPG come from?
LPG is manufactured during the refining of crude oil, or extracted from
oil or gas streams as they emerge from the ground. There are several
terminals situated around the coast of the UK. LPG is either delivered
by sea tanker or piped in from offshore gas fields.
What are the advantages of LPG over Oil?
oil burns slightly more efficiently than LPG due to the higher initial
capital costs of the system it would take up to 7 years before the
initial investment paid for itself.
