About North Star Gas, Ltd.

North Star Gas Ltd (NSG) was established in 2004 in order to supply the Baja California region with propane. For many years the region had suffered from a monopoly supply situation created by Pemex and two strong distribution companies. The people, industry, and the commercial sector of Upper Baja had to contend with poor service and unscrupulous business practices. Since 2004, NSG has been supplying high quality propane to Upper Baja California, changing the paradigm. People and industry now have an option for propane supply that is consistent with the standards and business practices of the rest of North America.

NSG has an affiliate retail propane distribution company operating out of Tijuana and Ensenada, B.C., known commercially as Star Gas.

NSG also supports the United States propane industry through transportation and logistical services. Over time NSG has grown to be a integral logistics provider to midstream companies across the USA, primarily in the Southwest USA where there is limited pipeline infrastructure. NSG specializes in (train-to-truck and truck-to-train) trans-loading operations.

In 2015, NSG spun off a subsidiary general freight company that operates in the 11 western states of the USA.

With the implementation of the Mexican Energy Reform in January of 2016, NSG has grown across the frontier of the US-Mexican border, from the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico. NSG manages several supply points that enable North American propane to find its way across the border to northern portions of Mexico.­
