Supplying Europe with Energy

DCC LPG is a pioneer in the supply of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), Natural Gas, LNG, Aerosol gas and renewable energies, operating today as a leading distributor across several countries in Europe

We source our LPG from gas separation plants, refineries and through imports, delivering to our customers by rail, road tanker and cylinder truck. Our customers come in all shapes and sizes, from families using our gas to heat their homes, to large multinational companies.  As well as household names, we also supply small businesses, hotels, restaurants and farmers.  Petrol stations are also a key sector, where we provide LPG as Autogas to fuel vehicles.

In 1977 DCC LPG began as a start-up under the Flogas brand in Ireland, with the backing of DCC plc, our parent company. Since then the business has grown significantly, both organically and via acquisition.  This led us to become  a leading LPG operator across the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. 

In 1984 we entered the UK and through a series of purchases (including BP’s LPG business in 2012) we created Flogas Britain.  Today we have an extensive network of over 40 depots spanning the country.  This was followed by our entry into the Benelux and Scandinavian regions in 2012 when we acquired Benegas from BP in the Netherlands and Belgium, and Statoil’s operations in Norway and Sweden. 

In November 2015, DCC completed the acquisition of Butagaz S.A.S, a leading liquefied petroleum gas business in France, from Shell for €450 million. This represents the largest ever acquisition by DCC and a major step forward in the continuing expansion of its LPG business.

Today we are one of the largest and most active suppliers of LPG in Europe, providing the  highest levels of innovation and service across 7 countries. In addition to LPG, we now supply Natural Gas, LNG, Aerosol gas and renewable energies such as solar and biomass.

In April 2017, we announced our expanison into Asia with an agreement to acquire Shell's LPG distribution business in Hong Kong and Macau.

In January 2018 we announced the intention to acquire the Retail West business from NGL Energy Partners in the US. This business is based in Illinois and operates in seven other states across the Mid-West and North West regions. The business currently trades under three prominant regional brands, Hicksgas, Pacer Propane and Propane Central and this branding strategy will continue into the future.  

We also announced the acquisition of TEGA from Linde AG. This is DCC LPG's first major acquisition in Germany and will provide an entry into the refrigerant gas market.

Both Retail West and TEGA are expected to complete in the financial year ending 31 March 2018.
