Title: Helium: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Frank J. Spiva, Jr., A. K. Doss, Jr.

Article Type: Meeting abstract


Helium demands a price approximately 100 times greater than natural gas, with a possibility of the price doubling in the very near future. It is obvious that any company or individual engaged in exploratory work should give this gas consideration in their drilling program.

Due to the many unique properties of helium, it is of extreme importance to our national defense, research, and industry. The authors discuss these properties and their relation to the many and varying uses of helium.

Further discussion concerns the location of producing and non-producing helium reserves, the Government's proposed conservation program, past production, and possible future demand.
