Liquefied Petroleum Gases (LPG)
Repsol is one of the largest LPG retail distribution companies in the Iberian peninsula. It ranks first in Spain, with four million active customers, and third in Portugal.
In 2018, total LPG sales amounted to 1,330,000 tons. In Spain, they decreased by 5% compared to the previous year, down to 1,154,000 tons.
Throughout the year, our company continued to sell its New Lightweight Container (NLC) in Spain. In Portugal, we closed the sale of the LPG business in the Portuguese islands with the Rubis Group, after receiving authorization from the competition authorities in December.
AutoGas or automotive LPG is one of our approaches to promote sustainable mobility. In Spain, where Repsol has 732 supply points, there are over 78,000 registered cars powered by AutoGas, far ahead of other alternative energy sources. The number of vehicles registered in 2018 grew fourfold compared to the previous year, making AutoGas the fastest-growing alternative option.
