Risk of Reduced Helium Supply for Brookhaven Laboratory

In a letter addressed to the USGS, Dr. Lee Hammons from Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) commented on the helium supply risk to BNL. This letter discusses how reduced helium supply could lead to reduced operational activities and impair BNL’s ability to support national defence needs. The letter also examines the impact that the reduced supply could have on BNL’s two major user facilities: the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II). It shows its helium pricing in 2023 doubling y/y to almost US$800/mcf.
