Alternative Fuels

The Railroad Commission operates programs related to liquefied petroleum gas (LPG, propane), compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG).

The Alternative Fuels Safety (AFS) department enforces both the state statutes and the Commission’s regulations on these fuels, by conducting safety evaluations of stationary facilities and mobile equipment, licensing companies engaged in alternative fuel activities, and providing training to individuals working in the alternative fuels industries.

Public education, outreach, and incentive programs are operated in partnership with fuel and equipment suppliers, manufacturers, distributors and fleet operators. The PUblic Education and Outreach section fo the website also administers and serves as a clearinghouse of information about federal, state and other alternative-fuel grants.
