In an effort to reduce Hawaii's dependence on oil and lower energy costs, Hawaii Gas wants to increase its shipments of natural gas into the state, according to Pacific Business News.

Hawaii Gas was the first business to bring liquefied natural gas to the state in April, a company press release stated. It uses the resource as backup fuel for its synthetic natural gas facilities to ensure the reliability delivery of energy to its customers.

Now the company wants to do more. Hawaii Gas believes bringing and using more LNG in Hawaii is essential to lowering energy costs for people in the state. To push its initiative forward, the company has opened the door for proposals from developers to supply bulk shipments of LNG as well as from businesses to provide storage and regasification services, Pacific Business News reported. The company anticipates receiving bulk shipments of LNG by the end of 2018.

"We're committed to lowering energy costs for Hawaii, and we see natural gas as playing a critical role in our state's clean energy future," Hawaii Gas CEO Alicia Moy said in the release.
