  • 2020

    Flagship Depot and Strategic Collaboration

    In a pivotal year for the company, M-Gas started to serve consumers for the first time, in Mukuru Kwa Njenga.

    We also extended a strategic collaboration with Safaricom, to include technology and infrastructure.

  • 2018

    Investment and Expansion by Circle Gas

    In 2018, a group of investors with extensive experience in energy, infrastructure and African investments formed what became Circle Gas to find a way to bring clean cooking to Kenyan households at a scale never achieved before.


    They brought to life the M-Gas brand as we know it today and began their journey to scale Pay-As-You-Go LPG, expanding access to clean cooking to millions.

  • Our Origins

    From Necessity to Innovation

    Our story is built upon the prohibitive cost of accessing clean cooking in East Africa. Seeking to make LPG accessible for all, Sebastian Rodriguez-Sanchez joined forces with a team in Tanzania to solve this.

    As a result, they designed one of the world’s first pay-as-you-go LPG smart meters, a technology which underpins the success of our business today.
