A gas containing certain specific hydrocarbons which are gaseous under normal atmospheric conditions, but can be liquefied under moderate pressure at normal temperatures. Propane and butane are principal examples.
Predominantly propane or butane separately or in mixtures that are maintained in a liquid state under the pressure within the confining vessel.
Fuel made from propane, butane or a combination.
Any fuel gas supplied to a building in liquid form. Propane is the usual LPG, but gases such as butane, propylene, butylene, and ethane are also LPG. For this report, any LPG reported was assumed to be propane. (See Energy Source, Propane, and Natural Gas.)
Petroleum gas (mainly propane and butane) in a liquid form. It is obtained by cooling the gas to about minus 48 degrees Celsius at normal atmospheric pressure. Abbreviation: LPG.
Natural fuel comprising a combination of propane, butane, propylene and butylene gases. It can be compressed and stored in liquid form without refrigeration.
Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is a mixture of low-boiling hydrocarbons that exists in a liquid state at ambient temperatures when under moderate pressures (less than 1.5 MPa or 200 psi). LPG is a by-product from the processing of natural gas and from petroleum refining. Major components of LPG are propane (min. 85% content in the U.S.), butane and propylene.
hydrocarbon gases, usually propane or butane, kept under pressure
Pressure or refrigeration liquefies lighter hydrocarbons, such as propane, butane, pentane, and mixtures of these gases.
Any material that consists predominantly of any of the following hydrocarbons or mixtures of hydrocarbons: propane, propylene, normal butane, isobutylene, and butylenes. LPG is usually stored under pressure to maintain the mixture in the liquid state.
Generally, any light hydrocarbon fuel that must be compressed to keep it from boiling away. (LPG) Commercial LPG usually contains mixtures of propane (C3H8) and butane (C4H10).
Gases which can be liquefied under moderate pressures. Common LPGs are butane and propane.
Butane and propane separated from natural gasoline and sold in liquid form as fuel, commonly known as bottled gas, tank gas, or simply LPG
LPG An alternative fuel; a natural gas cooled to below its boiling point of -260 degrees Fahrenheit so that it becomes a liquid; stored in a vacuum bottle-type container at very low temperatures and under moderate pressure. LNG vapor is lighter than air.
Propane, butane, or propane-butane mixtures derived from crude oil refining or natural gas fractionation. For convenience of transportation, these gases are liquefied through pressurization.
a light hydrocarbon composed mainly of propane and butane, occurring naturally in crude or from refining processes such as crude distillation, catalytic reforming or hydrocracking. Gaseous at atmospheric pressure and temperature, LPGs are liquefied by reducing temperature or increasing pressure for ease of transportation and storage.
A mixture of butane, propane and other light hydrocarbons (see) derived from refining crude oil. At normal temperatures it is a gas, but it can be cooled or subjected to pressure to facilitate storage and transportation.
Butane, propane, or a mixture of the two, obtained from oil or gas wells, or as a by-product from the refining of gasoline. It is sold in metal bottles under pressure as a liquid; hence, sometimes called bottled gas.
A mixture of hydrocarbons found in natural gas and produced from crude oil, used principally as a feedstock for the chemical industry, home heating fuel, and motor vehicle fuel.
Light hydrocarbon material, gaseous at atmospheric temperature and pressure, held in the liquid state by pressure to facilitate storage, transport and handling. Commercial liquefied gas consists essentially of either propane or butane, or mixtures thereof.
Liquefied natural gases, e.g., propane, butane and propane-butane blends, are used in the heating market, as an alternative feedstock for cracker operations and for other chemical processes.
Mixture of liquefied propane (C3H8) and butane (C4H10) gas removed from natural gas and used as a fuel.
Ethane, ethylene, propane, propylene, normal butane, butylene, and isobutane produced at refineries or natural gas processing plants, including plants that fractionate new natural gas plant liquids.
Liquefied petroleum gas is one of a number of hydrocarbon fuels which can be used to operate fuel cells.
Pro-pane, propylene, normal butane, butylene, isobutane, and isobutylene produced at refineries or natural gas processing plants, including plants that fractionate new natural gas plant liquids.
Colorless, odorless and non-toxic gas. It is separated from wet natural gas, light crude oil and oil-refinery gases.
Gas usually propane or butane, derived from oil and put under pressure so that it is in liquid form. Often used to power portable cooking stoves or heaters and to fuel some types of vehicle, eg some specially adapted road vehicles and forklift trucks.
Any one of a group of aliphatic hydrocarbons (olefins) including propane, butane and their isomers. Liquefied petroleum gases are kept under pressure.
Hydrocarbons which are gaseous under normal temperatures. LPGs are derived from natural gas and from various refinery off-gases resulting from such processes as crude distillation and cracking. Propane, butanes, propane/butane mixes, propylene and propane/propylene mixes are all referred to as LPGs.
Any material having a vapor pressure not exceeding that allowed for commercial propane composed predominantly of the following hydrocarbons, either by themselves or as mixtures: propane, propylene, butane (normal butane or isobutane), or butylenes.
LPG. A mixture of heavier, gaseous, paraffinic hydrocarbons, principally butane and propane. These gases, easily liquefied at moderate pressures, may be transported as liquids but converted to gases on release of the pressure. Thus, liquefied petroleum gas is a portable source of thermal energy that finds wide application in areas where it is impracticable to distribute natural gas. It is also used as a fuel for internal-combustion engines and has many industrial and domestic uses. Principal sources are natural and refinery gas, from which the liquefied petroleum gases are separated by fractionation
A class of light hydrocarbons that are gaseous at atmospheric pressure but can be liquefied easily under pressure. They are produced as part of the refining process and also in conjunction with the production of crude oil and natural gas. They can be used both as a fuel and as feedstocks for making petrochemicals and other products. The two types are propane and butane.
Liquefied petroleum gas (also called liquified petroleum gas, liquid petroleum gas, LPG, LP Gas, or autogas) is a mixture of hydrocarbon gases used as a fuel in heating appliances and vehicles, and increasingly replacing chlorofluorocarbons as an aerosol propellant and a refrigerant to reduce damage to the ozone layer. Varieties of LPG bought and sold include mixes that are primarily propane, mixes that are primarily butane, and mixes including both propane and butane, depending on the season—in winter more propane, in summer more butane. Propylene and butylenes are usually also present in small concentration.
