DID YOU KNOW? NGLs are used as petrochemical feedstock (ethane) in residential, commercial and auto gas applications (propane), and for gasoline blending (butane). Petroleum products from crude oil and natural gas are used to make plastics, pharmaceuticals chemicals, oils, lubricants, fuels like gasoline, diesel and thousands of household products. Consumers rely on these products to meet more than two-thirds of their energy needs each and every day.
