ENERGY

Besides offering quality CENEX Refined Fuels, Lubricants and Propane, the UFC Energy Department can supply you with the Equipment and Information necessary to manage your Energy needs.  Including the proper sizing of your storage tanks so you have enough Refined Fuels or Propane when you need them. We will also assist you in managing risk by providing opportunities to lock in a profit by buying your Energy products ahead of time.  Service, to UFC, means delivering products in a timely manner and performing leak-tests on propane systems, as well as providing information to our customers so they can stay current with the markets, cutting-edge technology being developed and programs to farm more acres per gallon.
