US Govt. Spends >US$1,100/mcf on Helium for Weather Services

The US Government recently tendered contracts for helium supply to the National Weather Service offices in Salt Lake City, Utah, and Las Vegas, Nevada, highlighting notable premium prices in these transactions. For the Salt Lake City office, 67mcf of helium was bought at US$1,085/mcf including rental costs. Similarly, the Las Vegas office's purchased 59mcf of helium for a slightly higher price of US$1,184/mcf. These are relatively small quantities meaning higher logistics costs but still represent significantly higher prices than the global traded prices we track. Previously, the US Defence Logistics Agency has paid as high as US$1,080/mcf for its helium needs.
