DME Prepares for Helium Processing Plant Startup

Desert Mountain Energy announced that the West Pecos helium processing plant is now set to start up in early November after delays due to heavy rains.

Additionally, the company plans to convert CO2 into food-grade CO2 and are collaborating with external partners on its hydrogen projects.
