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.

And to do that one must have a bobtail truck, which is under construction as we speak. However, as is the case so often, due to the CoronaVirus we will not have it in service until Mid August.

We are working closely with our Wholesale Propane provider to use their bobtails for initial setups and refills until our Bobtail is here. However, all billing and communication is with Oliver Propane staff. You will get the same level of service you are used to from us in the past and can expect in the future.

Compared to our competition, we are just 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.
