Clean Energy delivers Hawaii’s first LNG shipment

Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has supplied Hawaii Gas with 7,100 gal of LNG—the first shipment of the fuel in Hawaii state history.

Hawaii Gas recently received approval from the Hawaii Public Utility Commission to land containerized LNG for use as a back-up fuel source for its Oahu syngas plant.

The LNG was loaded into an ISO container at Clean Energy’s liquefaction plant in Boron, Calif. (OGJ Online, Sept. 14, 2007), transported to the Port of Los Angeles, and then shipped to Honolulu, where it was regasified and injected into Hawaii Gas’s utility distribution pipeline.

“Bringing LNG in ISO containers allows us to diversify our existing fuel supply,” said Alicia Moy, Hawaii Gas chief executive officer. “As we bring in larger quantities of LNG, we believe we can meet the needs of the people and businesses of Hawaii by lowering their cost of energy with a lower-carbon fuel.”

Hawaii Gas said it’s working with stakeholders throughout the state to utilize LNG as a less expensive and cleaner burning fuel for utility and commercial power generation as well as for ground and marine transportation.
