LPG plant


The project profile is on setting up of a Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) Bottling plant for domestic as well as commercial use as cooking gas. LPG is a mixture of commercial butane and commercial propane having saturated and unsaturated hydrocarbons.

LPG is gaseous at normal atmospheric pressure, but may be condensed to the liquid state at normal temperature, by the application of moderate pressures. Although they are normally used as gases, they are stored and transported as liquids under pressure for convenience and ease of handling.


Indians and people everywhere use petroleum products as a fuel in their automobiles, generating sets, industrial plants and for cooking purposes, thus making petroleum products an essential commodity that is needed for the daily operations of individual, industrial and national activities.

Undoubtedly a vast investment potential exists in the domestic liquefied petroleum gas filling sub-sector of the Oil & Gas Industry in India. A large proportion of the middle and upper socio-economic class of people depend on gas for cooking purposes. So are industries, government establishments, hotels, hospitals, restaurants, bakeries e.t.c

The Indian LPG scenario presents a gap between demand & supply. It is estimated that morethan 300000 MT of LPG is required in major cities for domestic purposes alone. So the LPG bottling plants are inevitable while the governement will not invest more on the same.


LPG is received in Bullet trucks and transferred to a storage tank that is fully piped to the dispensing stand.
