LPG: All you need to know
Dependable and efficient fuel for your off-grid business
Keen to fuel your business with LPG?
What is Liquefied Petroleum Gas?
LPG is a blanket term for two types of natural gas (Propane and Butane) and is a natural by-product of gas and oil extraction (66%) and oil refining (34%).
It’s an exceptional and efficient source of energy, that would otherwise go to waste if not captured – and has become a vital part of the UK’s off-grid energy mix.

LPG is available either in handy, portable cylinders or larger, bulk tanks – or you may benefit from a mix of the two. It will depend on your usage and storage space:
Gas bottles are designed to meet lower-volume needs. You may find that the amount of gas you use can vary from day to day, so we have made it easy to buy gas bottles online as and where you need them.
If your usage is more consistent you can arrange regular deliveries to ensure that you always have the supply you need. For more information on gas bottles click here.
Bulk tanks can be installed either above or below ground. They’re most popular when space is less of a concern and usage is higher.
A metered supply is typically used for housing developments and static caravans. This is where LPG is piped to individual properties from a centralised tank, so residents can benefit from a metered service.
LPG is an incredibly versatile fuel (with 1000s of uses) and can be used practically anywhere.
It’s used across a vast array of commercial industries – from caravan parks, hospitality and agriculture through to the likes of industrial heating and manufacturing processes, including steam generation. It’s also used as an efficient forklift truck fuel or to run greener fleet vehicles.
