About us

CEFA was formed by a group of experienced energy industry professionals with a track record in energy supply and major project delivery.

Initially CEFA provided strategic consulting services and advice on gas based fuel solutions for the mining industry and commercial solutions for stranded gas assets.

The team soon transformed an opportunity to build an LNG virtual pipeline on the East coast of Australia into a thriving LNG and LPG distribution business and in the process became an importer and distributer of high quality cryogenic equipment and control systems.

Now CEFA focuses on both growing its LNG/LPG distribution business and developing new projects in the clean fuel space. CEFA designs reliable, scalable and cost-effective LNG/CNG and LPG solutions tailored to the needs of our customers with the flexibility to grow with them as their fuel demands evolve.

CEFA is 100% Australian owned and is the only independent distributor of LNG in Australia
