Helium resources of the United States, 1993.
Amarillo, TX: U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, IC 9436, 1995 Jan; :1-18
This report uses several criteria to determine reserves, marginal reserves, and subeconomic resources, including helium content, proximity to major gas transmission lines, and size of field. Refinements in evaluating other occurrences of helium and undiscovered resources also have been made for this report. As of this report, there is 33.7 Bcf of helium stored in Bush Dome at Cliffside Gasfield. The USBM owns 31.7 Bcf, and 2.0 Bcf is owned by private companies. There is also approximately 3.8 Bcf of helium contained in the natural gas in Bush Dome. This reserve of helium and the helium on Federal lands in nondepleting fields will fulfill the USBM's mission of supplying helium to meet all essential Government needs for several decades.
