BAKERSFIELD, Calif., Feb. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- An emerging helium shortage is creating an unprecedented opportunity for investing in exploration for this critical commodity according to F. Lynn Blystone, president of Roya Resources LLC, a private Bakersfield, California exploration firm.
Driven by increased high tech manufacturing and multiple other uses against non-existent exploration for new supplies, the U.S. reserve for private use may exhaust as soon as next year. The resulting supply/demand crisis will further escalate the already comparative high price of helium. Owners of the new supplies will thus be positioned for especially favorable returns on investment.
Helium is used in various technology, construction, medical, commercial development, space exploration, military and national security applications on an increasing basis. The U.S. government controls about 70% of the world's helium supply and, by statute, will no longer sell to private interests by 2021. But those available reserves are currently being auctioned off and such opportunities may be gone as early as 2018.
Thus there are opportunities for private investors to obtain ownership of newly discovered supplies. Roya Resources has identified several California targets prospective for helium and is forming partnerships for high net worth individuals to fund exploration/confirmation/exploitation of the prospect targets.
While some prospects are very large, in the range of 30-40 square miles of surface, others are small niche size and current engineering technology allows for small portable processing plants rather than the multi-million dollar permanent plants-an ideal set up for private investors to collect exceptional revenues and investment returns.
Helium is typically associated in small amounts with natural gas production so the companion natural gas production also offers a revenue source after the helium is separated. Helium now sells for some 30 times the natural gas price but exploration and exploitation techniques and costs are similar to compound the returns, which also enjoy significant tax benefits for investors.
As helium sources dry up for private needs, owners of new supplies stand to reap extraordinary rewards for their efforts and risk. As in all exploration endeavors, there is the risk of failure, which is considerably mitigated financially by favorable tax treatment. But exceptional profit opportunity for taking the risk to meet crisis demand is the primary incentive.
