The South African energy supply industry is characterised by unequal access to modern energy such as electricity and LPG. Low income households lack access to affordable, safe and cleaner energy sources for cooking and space heating. Power shortfalls in recent years and the increasing cost of electricity has resulted in the need for an energy mix that reduces the heavy dependence on electricity. The South African government has identified LPG as an alternative energy carrier of choice for household thermal needs. The LPG industry can provide an affordable and effective solution to household energy requirements that safe and reliable.
Coreplat Resources aims to be the preferred supplier of liquid petroleum gas (LPG) which provides services to the greater Gauteng region.

Products and Services
LPG is a flammable mixture of hydrocarbon gases (propane of butane) which are used as fuel for cooking, heating, commercial appliances and vehicle propulsion. LP gas is produced the refining of petroleum (crude oil) or extracted from petroleum or natural gas streams as they emerge from the ground.
Coreplat Resources Gas Distribution Division offers the following product and services:
- LPG Products: We supply our customers with 2.5 kg, 9 kg, 19 kg and 48 kg gas cylinders.
- Gas Installation Services: We provide gas and service equipment and infrastructure to our customers/clients.
LPG Cylinder Exchange Process
The LPG industry has adopted a general practice for the exchange of LPG cylinders to allow consumers and gas users to swap one brand of LPG cylinder for another. However, this arrangement only applies to LPG cylinders owned by LPG suppliers who provide their cylinders to the market on a loan basis, against the payment of a refundable cylinder deposit. This provides greater accessibility of LPG to consumers and allows users the ability to switch between suppliers, should the need arise. The exchange process requires that certain opposition cylinders that come into the possession of LPG suppliers due to the exchange practice are returned to each competitor company and vice versa.

Every time a cylinder enters our filling plant, it is checked for damage and corrosion. It will only be filled if it passes this inspection.
After filling, every cylinder is checked to make sure that there are no leaks and to make sure that it has not been over-filled or under-filled. Only cylinders that pass these checks will leave the filling plant.
Every cylinder is pressure tested periodically to ensure that it is fit to be used.
Drivers of vehicles transporting LPG are trained in good driving practices, emergency procedures, etc.
