LPG was introduced to the world by Union Carbide in 1920 under the brand name ‘PYROFAX’. However, it penetrated the Indian market during the fifties by Burmah Shell & Stanvac. The marketing was handed over to private concessionaires of Esso & Caltex such as Kosan Gas, DGPL & JK Gas. It was 1979 when HPCL commenced the marketing of LPG under the brand name ‘HP GAS’.
And today, Hindustan Petroleum Gas is the leading domestic and commercial cooking gas supplier in India. In fact every one of two household in the country cooks on HP gas. You no longer need to wait in long queues to book a cylinder. Today you can easily book HP Gas for the official website of Hindustan Petroleum from the comfort of your home.
