The US BLM's Cliffside plant went down again last week leading to a halt in helium production. The pipeline pressure was 1287PSIG and the offtakers were under allocation as a result of the outage. The K-100 unit which puts gas through the coolbox went down due to an issue with the heat sensors. It appears to be a relatively easy problem to rectify with a restart being attempted over the last weekend meaning production should be back up and running this week.
