In a future low-carbon economy, propane market penetration will most likely be shaped by its price competitiveness and lower comparative emissions relative to other fossil fuels.
The key to safety for all energy sources is proper use and handling. Propane’s characteristics, along with the regulations applied to the equipment, training, storage and handling, make it one of the safest energy sources for consumer use.
Whether discussing energy, the economy or the environment, propane provides solutions to many important issues facing Canada today.
Propane is a versatile and portable energy source – chemical symbol C3H8 – that is a derivative of natural gas processing and oil refining. It is extracted and used as a gas, but stored and transported as a liquid, to make distribution and use easy and efficient.
Although most propane is produced from natural gas processing, its price is influenced mainly by the cost of crude oil because propane competes with oil-based fuels for heating.
Low-emission, cost-effective propane is ready to provide energy for countless everyday uses in every corner of the country.
