Surety of Supply (SOS)
Elgas understand your need for reliable sourcing and embraces it with our core company strategy, Surety of Supply (SOS).
More than just words, Elgas has greater investment in LP gas storage infrastructure and logistical support than any other LP gas marketer in the Trans-Tasman region.
At the heart of the SOS™ system is the Elgas Cavern. Constructed at a cost of $190 million, the Cavern is the largest LP gas storage facility in the region.
Located completely underground, it is an essential part of the energy infrastructure.
To put it in perspective, the Cavern’s 65,000 tonne LP gas capacity is enough to fill over 1,300,000 taxicabs or heat 350,000 homes for a year.
Open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, it has dramatically increases the region’s LP gas reserves.

Quality control of LP gas at the Cavern is exacting.
Each supplier of LP gas to the Cavern, whether from natural reserves, domestic refineries or elsewhere in the world, provides an independent certification of quality prior to arrival.
When a sea tanker docks, a sample is drawn and analysed to confirm the LP gas cargo still meets the certificated high quality.
Abiding by these protocols means Elgas LP gas continuously meets or exceeds quality specifications and you are assured of the highest quality LP gas.
The Elgas SOS™ system is not just about LP gas storage, it also involves state-of-the-art logistics.
Elgas fields a fleet of 55 long haul road tankers, more than 125 local delivery tankers and over 200 LP gas cylinder delivery trucks.
These are combined with on-board computers, GPS based routing software and telemetry on many larger customer vessels to provide the best LP gas delivery service possible.
Elgas customer care is both local and national, with Elgas centres located around the country to provide customer service, local advice and on-site LP gas storage.
