Blue Star Helium finds ‘high concentration’ of helium at Voyager


Following completion of drilling at the prospect, six miles north of the historic Model Dome helium field, raw gas was found and analysed, showing a calculated air-free gas composition of 8.8% in the Lyons formation.

The composition of the gas, in addition to nitrogen and carbon dioxide concentrations, was found to be similar to the average historic Model Dome analogue production, which represents one of the highest in-situ helium concentrations found both in the US and globally.

Commenting on the find, Trent Spry, Managing Director, CEO, Blue Star, said, “The whole Blue Star team is incredibly proud of this result. This result proves that gas is trapped in the Voyager prospect and is a strong validation of that interpretation and our prospect mapping.”
