As I talked to exhibitors at the recent AAPG Annual Convention and Exhibition, I asked their views on current industry economic conditions, since by appearance, they all had likely been through downturns before. Without fail, they all said, “There will be the other side of this slump,” and whether it comes in six months or two years, they are working to be prepared for when it comes – and surviving until then.

Congress established a Federal Helium Reserve in 1925 to assure supplies of the non-explosive gas for use in military blimps and dirigibles. In 1996, faced with an expensive and unnecessary facility, Congress passed the Helium Privatization Act to sell down the gas supply and close the facility. That legislation lead to over consumption and a lack of commercial interest in helium production that the Helium Stewardship Act of 2013 was intended to correct so that the reserve could be closed. Now Congress is investigating whether additional legislation is needed to assure fair competition in the sale and refining of helium.
