Maybe they can get the propene easyer than we can get the propane? Propane would be far more flammable with more hydrogen atoms.
Green gas = propane
Black gas = propene
Its not that one is easier to harder to get, their both different gases at different pressures.
Also just because Hydrogen (H2) is flammable that doesn't mean that everything with hydrogen in it is flammable. Water is H2O but extinguished fires, so just because propane has more hydrogen doesn't mean its more reactive. Because of the double bond between carbon atoms in propene wouldn't that make it more reactive (more flammable)? Asking the chemists out there.
