What we do

At SHV Energy, what we do is driven by our vision. It is our aim to make cleaner energy available to everyone. This objective is reflected in our products and services.

SHVEnergy - Our Energy - What we do

Our value to our customers

Our mission is to continue serving over 26 million customers worldwide with unique energy combinations while contributing to a cleaner future.

SHV Energy is proud to provide energy for hundreds of applications, ranging from cooking and heating to powering low-polluting vehicles. We serve our customers through our market-leading LPG companies on four continents: Europe, Asia, North America, and South America.

It is our mission to support our customers while going beyond our responsibility of simply supplying energy.

Every day, we provide people and businesses beyond the gas grid with the opportunity to switch from highly polluting, carbon-intensive fuels to cleaner forms of energy. Our aim is to continue developing new solutions that enable a better, cleaner future.

Our products and services

SHV Energy provides lower carbon and cleaner energy solutions, contributing to the energy transition by switching customers away from higher carbon and more polluting solid and liquid fuels, such as heating oil, coal and woody biomass.*

We distribute off-grid energy, namely LPG and LNG, and we are active in sustainable fuels, including bioLPG and bioLNG, and renewable energy solutions, ranging from distributed solar energy to energy efficiency.

We are also focused on the development and availability of alternative fuels, such as rLPG, rDME, H2 and enabling technologies.

*LPG has lower emissions compared to polluting solid and liquid fuels, and has virtually no particulate matter emissions, improving both indoor and outdoor air quality. It also eliminates nearly all black carbon emissions from household cooking and helps reduce deforestation.

LPG is a gas easily stored in liquid form in small, medium, or large containers. It is commonly used in gaseous form and can power normal gas appliances, such as cookers, heaters, and boilers. In rural areas, it can provide a self-contained source of gas for a variety of applications. 

LPG can help to realize significant carbon savings, particularly when it replaces higher carbon fuels, such as coal or heating oil. LPG is used in many parts of the world to power vehicles and, in developing countries, to replace hazardous solid fuel for cooking stoves.


LNG (liquefied natural gas) is natural gas refrigerated to a very low temperature and stored as a liquid. It has been reduced to a liquid state by a process of cooling to a temperature of minus 162°C. Once it reaches the receiving facility, the LNG is transferred to special storage tanks. It is kept there in liquid form at near atmospheric pressure and at temperatures of minus 160°C. It remains in storage until required for redelivery.

Sustainable fuels

A growing part of our energy portfolio is composed of sustainable fuels, which are produced from renewable and/or alternative feedstocks that are sustainably sourced.

Our strategy for sustainable development over the next 20 years is to ensure that the source and supply of our clean, safe, and efficient gas products become increasingly renewable, biobased, and lower carbon.
