Peak Fuel sells LPG, which is a type of gas that can be liquefied by adding pressure at ambient temperature. It consists of flammable hydrocarbons, predominantly with propane and butane.
LPG is primarily obtained from crude oil refining or natural gas fractionation. It can also be produced from renewable sources. LPG is ideal as fuel in domestic, commercial, industrial and agricultural applications.
Product Use and Safety
LPG is potentially hazardous if mishandled or misused. Principal hazards associated with LPG are fires and explosions. Hence, proper care in handling this product is emphasized to minimize incidents and/or accidents.
Product Specification and Testing
Peak Fuel adheres with the Philippine National Standard PNS/DOE QS 005:2016 for checking the quality of its LPG products. The ASTM D2163-14, described as the Standard Test Method for Determination of Hydrocarbons in Liquefied Petroleum Gases (LP) and Propane/Propene Mixture by Gas Chromatography is also used for analyzing LPG and as basis for issuance of the Certificate of Quality.
At Peak Fuel, site safety within our operational premises is paramount. Throughout our facilities, the promotion of a safety mindset and observance of safety protocols is of top priority.
Peak Fuel’s commitment to safety begins with ensuring that its employees are provided with a safe working environment. Likewise, the company is always working towards providing its host communities the peace of mind of having a safely operating plant in the neighborhood.
Various safety training and seminars are conducted to equip employees with the proper skills and knowledge to identify, eliminate and protect themselves from potential hazards in their workplaces, and eventually develop a safe work attitude. Safety management systems and operational procedures are also in place and implemented to guide employees in their day-to-day activities. Daily site safety inspection is conducted. A regular safety audit is scheduled, as well as risk assessment and compliance evaluation for safety, environmental and legal requirements.
Peak Fuel takes advantage of the existing safety and fire protection equipment strategically located inside the Complex, thereby minimizing safety risks. We have our own fleet of fire trucks, and an emergency response team trained as first-line crew that is ready to respond to any fire emergency at the site. The Complex is also equipped with deluge systems, fire hydrants with monitors, fire hoses and nozzles, fire extinguishers, alarms and detection systems to augment the firefighting facilities. Moreover, an emergency preparedness and response procedure is in place, which guides workers to handle exigencies. The procedure is tested for its effectiveness through periodic drills and exercises. Security protocols are also strictly enforced.
