After Air Product's recent case against the US BLM, the Compressed Gas Association (CGA), has joined forces to request the suspension of the upcoming sale of the Federal Helium Reserve System (FHR) due to concerns over potential disruptions in the US helium supply chain. These disruptions could affect industries like healthcare, semiconductors, defence, and aerospace. While the CGA and others support the FHR's transfer to private ownership, they emphasise the importance of a responsible transition. The sale could have significant implications for national security and US priorities, prompting the request to delay it until all deficiencies are addressed.
