LPG, or Liquefied Petroleum Gas, is a mixture of two hydrocarbons derived from natural gas, Propane (C3) and Butane (C4). In Indonesia, the primary use of LPG is as cooking fuel (e.g. gas stoves) in homes, shopping malls and hotels, as automotive fuel, with limited use within the construction industry.
Condensate consists of Pentane (C5) and heavier hydrocarbons. The production of Condensate is an extension of the LPG production process, essentially a by-product of the distillation of natural gas in liquid form. In Indonesia, Condensate’s main use is as a raw material for paint, thinner, glue, and tire vehicles. It is now also increasingly being used as Light Naphtha to substitute Naphtha as a raw material for cracking facilities.
Propane (C3) is sold separately by the Company. It is mainly used as an environmentally friendly substitute for Freon or refrigerant.
