Total US production of propane and butanes — commonly referred to as LPG — increased to 2.1 million bpd in 2016. Production increased in all regions of the country except for the West Coast (Petroleum Administration for Defense District, or PADD 5). Unlike other regions, West Coast LPG production has been decreasing since 2010, driven by declining refinery production. Production in the region totalled 80 000 bpd in 2016, 10 000 bpd less than in 2010.
