Blue Star Helium has today (23rd Dec) shared significant progress for its ongoing helium exploration effort in Las Animas County, Colorado, having been approved permit to drill for its Enterprise 16#1 well.

Believed to be the first approved permit to drill for a helium well in Colorado, and the first approved drilling application of any type in Las Animas County, since changes to the state permitting landscape were enacted in January 2021, the news marks a significant milestone for both the company and North American helium exploration.

As a result of the news, Blue Star has selected its preferred rig and expected to begin drilling in January 2022, weather permitting.
