about propane

"Professional, reliable propane service... where and when you need it!"

Propane's portability makes it the world’s most versatile fuel. It can do virtually any job that any other energy source is capable of doing and be taken where electricity or natural gas lines can’t economically reach. Propane can be transported and contained in large enough quantities to make it an ongoing and reliable source of energy. You can find it being used in the countryside to heat farms, hog and poultry barns, and grain dryers. Propane is also prominent in Northern communities, remote mining sites, construction sites, resorts and all kinds of temporary applications where other forms of energy are impractical. Propane energy powers oil field pump jacks, portable generators, asphalt plants, roofing tar-pots, forklifts and fleet vehicles as well as a huge variety of camping and recreational vehicle appliances.

About 85% of the 11 billion litres of propane produced in Canada is extracted from natural gas, most of which comes from Alberta. Propane can be transported by rail, pipeline or truck. A typical Co-op Propane distribution centre maintains storage of 30,000 to 60,000 gallons (110,000 to 225,000 litres). Propane is hauled to Co-op Propane distribution centres by 5- or 7-axle semi-trailers from a number of sources including the Co-op Refinery Complex, gas plants and pipeline terminals. Smaller delivery units (10,000 to 32,000 litres) then make deliveries to end users and to over 360 Co-op Gas Bars where it is resold to consumers for a variety of uses.
