DCC Plc (LON:DCC) has announced its first acquisition in the US LPG market, picking up the Retail West LPG division of NGL Energy Partners LP in a deal worth US$200mln (£152mln).

DCC described the deal as a significant step in DCC's strategy to build a global LPG business, highlighting that the US is the world’s largest LPG market. While the market is attractive and growing, it is also fragmented with more than 4,000 distributors.
