Did you know that helium is considered crucial to the United States’ national security? 

Because of this, a strategic repository was developed in 1960 in Amarillo, Texas. This WAS the largest source of helium in the world. 

But the US Bureau of Land Management sold a large portion of this helium each year to pay for the plant's debts.

Helium is irreplaceable. Its low density means it floats away into high orbit and can’t be recovered.

Here’s some of helium's unique properties that make it critical for the modern world:

Helium is Unique, Rare & Essential for The Modern World 

Helium is the 2nd smallest atom in the universe. Because of this, it's used to find microscopic leaks in ship hulls and vehicle air conditioning systems.
It’s a frictionless superfluid -- this property makes it vital in scientific research into lasers, transistors and superconductors. For instance, superfluid helium was used in a special satellite in 1983 to get information about infrared waves in space.
Helium gas expands rapidly. This provides a safer alternative than explosive propelled airbags.
Lowest Boiling & Melting point at - 272° Celsius. This means it’s liquid at near absolute zero. This enables supercooling in MRI machines and the Hadron Collider.  

Amazon, Google, Facebook and Netflix all depend on helium to keep their servers cool and running around the clock.

Why Amazon, Google and Facebook NEED Helium…And Other Facts That Resource Investors Need 
To Know About Helium NOW

In 2019 they stopped selling.

Here's what happened to helium prices. 

In 2017 - private sale, grade A helium was $200/mcf (thousand cubic feet). 

In June 2018 - $225/Mcf. 

In May, 2020 - the Chinese average import price was $375/Mcf. And retail prices hover near $1,000/Mcf! 

On top of this, the global estimated level of demand for helium is 6 bcf (BILLION cubic feet/ year). Analysts estimate global CAGR growth for helium at 7.6%. 

This is an opportunity for smart resource investors. 

Deposits of helium gas collect over millions of years as uranium and thorium decay and emit helium nuclei.

Usually, this helium leaks through the surface of the earth.  In an economic deposit, it's trapped, often in natural gas structures. Helium concentrations of 0.5% in natural gas are considered commercially viable.

Where are these “helium deposits”, gas reservoirs that contain helium?

The world's existing helium supplies come from Russia, Qatar and the United States. 

The 5th largest prospective resource is in Canada. Low political risk makes a helium producer in Canada appealing to investors. 

If you're an investor looking for intriguing opportunities, you'll want to watch pre-production companies.

Where Do You Find Helium And What Does An Economic Resource Look Like?

Enter First Helium

The only pre-production helium company with a producing well AND an independent engineering evaluation with contingent resources and associated NPV. 

First Helium delivered approximately 1,100 barrels of light oil during flow-testing of its 1-30 discovery well. 

The sale of that oil marks the first revenue, a significant milestone for the Company. 

First helium is continuing its exploration and development for helium gas in the Worsley area. 


This setup reduces risk, while leaving the exploration upside. 

We'll come back to this.

First Helium chose Alberta because of the abundance of natural gas and world class seismic data.

First Helium boasts a seasoned management team, board of directors and advisory group with successful track records in...

Capital markets and finance
Helium project development, construction and project management

Management has identified one or more natural gas wells in Alberta with historically high measurements of helium.

Their first well has historical concentrations of 1.3% helium, which is very economic.

As mentioned, preliminary engineering is already done on a processing facility.

First Helium management estimates annualized cash flow of approximately $6 million, increasing potential incremental market value of approximately $18 million attributable to the 1-30 well.

Because the well is production tested, a resource report from Sproule (an energy consulting firm) valued the 15-25 well at ~$15.2 million, which represents approximately $0.23 per First Helium share.

More wells, near the discovery well, are drill-ready with 3D seismic data that support the hypothesis that economic helium is there too.  Drilling of the "4-29" Well is planned for Mid-February.

Bringing the first helium well, plus the other nearby wells, into production is one of First Helium's goals. 

Exploration Upside 

First Helium controls over 31,000 hectares of exploration & development land on the same trend as the discovery well. Additionally, on December 7th the company announced that it discovered a valuable pool of light oil.

January 11th the company sold over 1,100 barrels of light crude oil, amounting to $90,000 in revenue. First Helium expects to produce light oil from targets 1-30 at an estimated rate of 400 barrels per day. 

The company will maintain production providing a stable payback period of around six month at current commodity prices. Therefore, it has lots of reasons to believe it can expand it’s core resource, mainly because...

Over 1 BILLION cubic feet of helium has been produced (but not captured) within its project area.

Plus, the company has a seismic & land review option on over 350,000 hectares of prospective helium land.

Resource investors should pay attention to commodities with growing demand and shrinking supply.

Helium is that commodity.

Ultra-high thermal capacity enables super-conductivity. This property is critical in arc welding and accelerating the binding of certain metals.
It’s inert, meaning it won’t react with the air. This allows for the safe cleaning of rocket fuel tanks and other key processes in fibre optics and semiconductor manufacturing.
Low density - Used to float weather balloons, airships and decorative balloons.
