The Federal Helium Program The BLM operates and maintains a helium storage reservoir, enrichment plant, and pipeline system near Amarillo, TX, that supplies over 40 percent of Federal helium program book demand for helium.

The BLM supplies crude helium to private helium refining companies which in turn refine the helium and market it to consumers. During the s and early s, Interior purchased about 34 billion cubic feet of crude helium for conservation purposes and to meet federal helium needs, such as for the space program and scientific research.

Crude helium is a gas of 50 to 85 percent Federal helium program book. While some of this helium was used to meet federal needs, most of it was retained in storage.
