Today, we are shifting towards the alternative of traditional fuels. More and more industries are turning to CNG, LPG, and LNG fuels. It reduces greenhouse gas emissions and minimizes expenses that help in increasing productivity in industries and combat global warming.
LPG and LNG are two different gases and have different distribution networks, energy content, combustion, and working pressure.
LPG is derived from natural gas and crude oil during oil refining. Affordability and readability in the market are the advantages that make LPG superior to LNG. To know more about their differences and which one is better, here is an interesting read, so read along.
LPG is a by-product of the extraction of crude oil. It has a mixture of butane, isopropane, propane, and other gases. The characteristics of LPG gas are odorless, colorless, and combustible. These cylinders are filled at optimum temperature and a particular perfume is added that indicates a gas leak from the cylinder.
LNG is liquefied natural gas. The natural gas is chilled to -161 degrees Celsius for liquidation. Liquid natural gas is 600 times denser in comparison to natural gas after extraction.

LPG is the preferred choice for cooking fuel and small industries. LNG The technology involved in the production and infrastructure required for the supply of LNG is not effective for small industries and household cooking.
Another major advantage of LPG is the cost of fuel. The cost of LPG and LNG is volatile however, LPG is cost-effective as it does not require any infrastructure for connection and there is no spillage or loss during transportation.
The difference in storing the gases impacts the usage. The LNG is stored in cryogenic barrels which are then re-gasified to convert into vapor for usage. The cost of this type of storage along with a vaporizer can fall between $150,000-$200,000 for industries.
While LPG is stored in cylinders at optimum temperature, it converts into vapor when used. This reduces the cost of installation. In industries to install a propane system costs between $100,000-$150,000.
