First Helium is a private helium exploration, production and development company operating in the Worsley area, located near Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada. It was founded to capitalize on the untapped helium potential of Western Canada in response to the shifting supply dynamics of the global helium marketplace. Building on its successful helium discovery well, which has production tested at over 1.3% helium content over three long term period tests, First Helium is working to develop its 118 section land base along the highly prospective Worsley Helium Trend. To establish its operating base, First Helium seeks to market its helium gas into the North American helium market via term off-take marketing arrangements with established helium distribution companies.
