About Us

Why Propane?

Oliver Propane Solutions LLC, originally 3OEnergy LLC, began by providing propane cylinders for the Food Truck and Trailer Industry in Austin, Texas. From filling and refilling, delivering and picking up cylinders, we began the process of learning the propane business. And we liked it. We met great people and now we have over 100 clients.

So we have decided to expand our licensing with the Texas RRC and broaden our market to being a full scale Propane Wholesale Provider.

Our bobtail is here, and we are delivering and filling commercial and residential tanks in addition to Food Trucks and Trailers.

Our Anova Tank monitors are unique to Oliver Propane and we look forward to introducing our clients to the benefits they provide to them. And for no additional cost.

Compared to our competition, we are a very small company, but then that is why we will need to work a lot harder to please our clients and take service to a new level.
