What is liquefied petroleum gas?


Liquefied Petroleum GAS, abbreviated as LPG, is usually mainly composed of two hydrocarbon compounds, propane and butane, with the chemical formula C4H10, C3H8. Butane itself consists of two compounds, isobutane and normal butane. LPG, which is usually known in some parts of the world as its main compound, propane, is produced as a byproduct of the refining and production processes of natural gas and crude oil refining

LPG mainly consists of 90% propane, 2.5% butane and heavy hydrocarbons and a small amount of ethane and propylene

LPG should not be confused with LNG (liquefied natural gas). LNG is actually natural gas (mainly methane and ethane) that is liquefied for easier and more affordable transportation. CNG is natural gas that has been compressed to occupy a smaller volume

For example, liquid gas provided to consumers in Iran in different seasons has between (50-90) percent butane and (10-50) percent propane and up to 2% heavier compounds such as pentane
