What Is The Difference Between Natural & LPG Gas?

Natural Gas

Natural gas is primarily made up of methane though it does contain small amounts of other gases such as butane, ethane, propane, and pentane. In its raw state, natural gas has no colour or odour. It is formed within the earth over millions of years from organic matter that decomposes. After extracting from the earthen reservoirs and then removing impurities, consumers receive the natural gas viz many kilometres of gas pipelines.


LPG (liquefied Petroleum Gas) is a colourless, low carbon and highly efficient fuel. Being a hydrocarbon gas, LPG remains in a liquefied form. LPG is supplied in two forms. Butane and propane. LPG is used in various ways, including fuel for crop-drying, heating homes, BBQ’s and many more.
