Light enough to escape Earth’s gravitational field, the planet’s net reserves of helium are in continuous decline.

Coupled with helium’s attributes, which are impossible to replicate, and numerous new applications for helium currently being evaluated, helium’s status as a highly strategic and valuable commodity is clearly established.

Helium is currently produced as a by-product of natural gas processing and LNG production, with global supply concentrated among six large multi-national companies. In contrast to most of the existing helium production facilities, Helium One’s assets are standalone helium projects that have the potential to materially enhance global helium reserves.


“We’re going to be looking back and thinking, I can’t believe people just used to fill their balloons with it, when it’s so precious and unique.”

Peter Wothers A Cambridge University chemist who called for an end to helium-filled party balloons.
