All about LPG

Frequently asked general questions about LPG

What is LPG?

LPG also known as Liquid Petroleum Gas, is obtained during the processing of crude oil or direct from the North Sea. It is a clean-burning, controllable, sustainable and efficient fuel, free from both lead a sulphur. It is a versatile and flexible source of energy, free from both lead and sulphur.

LPG is portable, can be transported, stored and used virtually anywhere as an energy source, and there are sufficient reserves to last for many decades. LPG also shows lower greenhouse gas emissions than petrol, diesel, and electricity, on an energy-equivalent basis.

It is supplied in bulk tank and butane or propane cylinder (or bottled gas) formats and is a reliable energy source both at home and in industry.

What is LPG used for?

At home, LPG is a reliable and safe energy source used for central heating, mobile heating, water heating, cooking, drying, and outdoor uses such as barbecues and patio heaters.
LPG provides a portable and reliable energy to power many different types of businesses, from instant water heating for dairy farms, to grain drying for large cereal processing plants; from top restaurants and hotels to schools and public bodies.

What is a bulk tank?

On most rural sites, connection to the mains is often not an option. The alternative for many people is an LPG bulk tank where LPG is stored neatly adjacent to your home in a special tank - your very own personal supply. An LPG bulk tank is just like a regular oil tank, but cleaner, easier to fill and much more secure than oil. Flogas has helped many families install an economical, safe gas central heating system, wherever they are in Ireland. Find out more from some of our happy customers.
