Lorna Blaisse had been principal geologist of Helium One Global just shy of two years when she was elevated to chief executive, so has the relative luxury of knowing the project, the people involved and the potential.

She’s done her groundwork in more ways than one, and for the past fifteen years has worked on oil and gas projects in Africa including “several successful multi-well drilling campaigns in Chad, Uganda and Kenya.”

Her immediate task is securing a rig so that the helium explorer can pursue Phase II exploration drilling in Tanzania.  Blaisse emphasises that Uganda and Kenya lie on the same geological trend as the basins they’re exploring in Tanzania, “and as a result of this I can draw from many, many parallels, not just in the subsurface, but also above ground.”
