Catalina Island Propane (Liquefied Petroleum Gas)

SCE serves 1,325 commercial and residential gas customers in Avalon (as contrasted with about 2,400 electricity customers and 1,900 water customers), delivering gas through 6.5 miles of underground distribution pipes. The gas production facilities are located at the Pebbly Beach Gas Plant in Avalon.

Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), in the form of propane, is delivered to Catalina by barge. The LPG is heated and vaporized to change it from liquid to gas, then mixed with air and inserted into the underground distribution system supplying customers in Avalon and Pebbly Beach Village. Driving much of the increase in SCE’s gas costs is the replacement of the 30-year-old gas vaporization plant.
