LPG stands for “liquefied petroleum gas.” It is a flammable hydrocarbon gas that is commonly used as a fuel for various purposes, including heating, cooking, and powering vehicles. LPG is a versatile energy source because it can be easily stored and transported in its liquid form, and it can be converted into a gas when needed for use.

LPG is primarily composed of propane and butane gases, and its composition can vary slightly depending on the source and production process. Propane and butane are both hydrocarbons, meaning they consist of hydrogen and carbon atoms, and they are obtained as byproducts during the refining of crude oil and natural gas production.
