Interest in helium sources has increased significantly both on a world-wide basis and locally within Alberta mainly due to increased use of helium in different industries and the depletion of the U.S. reserves of helium in storage in the mid-continental U.S. This information sheet provides a brief overview of AGS Digital Data 2020-0033 which contains helium concentration data from natural gas analysis results in Alberta, submitted to the Alberta Energy Regulator by industry.
