Although Australia is one of the world’s largest LNG exporters, it has only one helium recovery plant and contributes only ~3% to global helium production. The National Energy Resources Australia (NERA) has developed a project that aims for low-cost helium production and recovery from Australia's natural gas plants. To achieve this, the project will develop and demonstrate non-cryogenic technologies for helium recovery that can potentially cut the production cost by 50% when compared to current approaches based on deep cryogenic processing.
