Propane is a member of a family of chemical compounds called hydrocarbons, and is found in both crude oil and natural gas. When crude oil is drawn from a well, it is refined into various petroleum products. Propane is a derivative of this process. When natural gas is drawn out of the earth, it is a mixture of several hydrocarbon gases. Approximately 5 percent of this mixture is propane.
