On 1st June the BLM reported that it had started producing helium and sending it to the pipeline. The pipeline pressure remains very low at 492psig and will have to get up to at least 600psig to operate. Helium is in production at 0.6-1.0 mmscf/d and the BLM is working on plant stabilization. It plans to ramp helium production to around 1.6 mmscf/d with a target plant feed of 16 mmscf/d. It is working on residue gas purities.
