Holbrook Prospect

The Holbrook Basin of northern Arizona is being hailed as the "Saudi Arabia of Helium"

The Holbrook Basin is the only area in the world drilled exclusively for helium. Wells located in these fields average 8%+ helium giving them the highest helium concentration per well in the U.S. Shallow drilling depths and minimal fracing needs combine to keep drilling and well completion costs low.

Current known helium reserves worldwide are on pace to run out in 25 years. This has driven helium prices to over $250 per MFC currently, leaving little doubt that this trend will continue over the next several years as supplies decrease.

Recently, the state of Arizona reduced well spacing requirements to no less than 40 acres per well for the Pinta Dome Field.

This has signaled a new developmental phase of drilling in the Holbrook Basin, opening up many new low risks, in field drill-sites needed to produce the large helium reserves in place.


5 Reasons to drill in the Holbrook Basin

HIGHEST HELIUM CONTENT - The Holbrook Basin is the only area in the world drilled exclusively for helium. Wells located in these fields average 8%+ helium giving them the highest helium concentration per well in the U.S.

NEW HELIUM GATHERING TECHNOLOGY - Within the last 2 years a new helium separation and storage system has been developed that does all of the work that the large helium storage plants did in years past but at a fraction of the size and cost. These units allow us to now sell helium at the wellhead with no need for costly pipeline construction to get the gas to a central helium plant.

LOW E&P COSTS - Shallow drilling depths and minimal fracing needs combine to keep drilling and well
 completion costs low.

SOARING HELIUM PRICES - Current known helium reserves worldwide are on pace to run out in 25 years. This has driven helium prices to $125 to $200 per MFC currently, leaving little doubt that this trend will continue over the next several years as supplies decrease.

UNTAPPED HELIUM RESERVES - Recently, the state of Arizona reduced well spacing requirements to no less than 20 acres per well for the Pinta Dome Field. This has signaled a new developmental phase of drilling in the Holbrook Basin, opening up many new, lower risk, in field drill-sites needed to produce the large helium reserves in place.
