Propane is readily accessible in Canada, with a well-established network of pipelines, storage, distribution points and retail locations.
Approximately 70% (or 8.6 billion litres), of Canada’s annual production of propane is exported because of the lack of domestic demand.
Propane is non-toxic and in its natural form, and odourless. Odourant is only added at the point of manufacture to ensure that any leaks are readily detected.
Propane is stored and handled as a liquid under pressure. The vessels are designed and engineered with safety factors and with control valves and fittings to prevent the accidental release of product.
