How propane is made in the USA

Close to 90% of the domestic propane supply is created from natural gas processing in the United States and Canada. Some of the rest of the propane supply comes from crude oil refining. In fact, the U.S. has become a net exporter of propane, with some of that exported propane being used at farms all over the world.

Liquid components from the processing of natural gas — propane, butane, methane and ethane — are extracted. Once the propane production is complete, it gets sent to bulk distribution centers by pipelines, tanker ship, trains, trucks and barges. From the distribution centers, it goes to local propane delivery companies like Parker Gas, who bring the propane to you.
