I think DME are ok Scott. A direct peer and a little bit ahead of where we are in a brave new commodity ( in Discovery terms) He3 will be in there to zome degree so that's valid and ok to discuss as far as I'm concerned and who the hell am I to say anyway.
The day started talking of scams and tricks and finished on people jumping into a fellow posters share tips So a funny old day on this board!
Sidetrack...fully aware this post isn;t the main reason for being in BOIL...
What do you think for the potential for Helium HFB? Australia and something like the 5th biggest HE producer, although at only about 3% of world production, but a lot of that 3% comes from Bayu Undan. Its due to run out there. I suspect they'll be some levels of it in and around Chuditch. For the record i think Qatar gas has Helium at 0.014% and Bayu Undan at 0.1% helium in Gas.
Helium was, as people know a part of the whole Conocco and witness K case.
I think if it's there is gives a strategic edge over other gas fields with lower HE% across the globe. Specifically as Australia need a stable source of it.
We had saxed up wmd lies, MP expenses scandal, Govt contract for mates, Libor rigging, mortgages packaged as triple AAA in bonds when they were junk, BHS, Debenhams, pension scandals. How many went to prison, was it 1?
We don't stand a chance of stopping a few posts here.

Obstando Exciting little side interest for sure.
Like Scott Ive no idea on the economics and capex, or even if he4 is recoverable alongside a recovering he3 system.
World changing though and can't help but get excited. The idea of Nuclear power without radioactive waste is something to behold. To think we could be a part of that is pretty wild.
Anyway dramatics over. Whilst drifting and drilling I see DME are monetizing Argon too. Be sure to be a suprise or two down for HE1 I suspect Just hope it isn't stacks of co2, probably better lower Helium % than that what with the way the world is changing.

Helium3 is the big one, usually within HE4, one less neutron. I'm curious to know what levels of HE3 are commercial for production, as its very low levels. My understanding at present it's found in certain aged/ types of nuclear weapons. Fascinated by the moon race for it as a few are here. One of the best hopes for our energy and water from nuclear desalination. I have visited several European nuclear plants, it's a long held personal interest Scott. I actually cycled up to Hinkley point, pre edf/chinese, and am not far from Sharpness decomissioned.
I've dug deep into HE3 in Tanzania could never quite scratch that itch, a trace element of a rare earth is beyond google!
Anyway, digressions as far as Rukwa is concerned traces of Tritum have been found in waters, and that's indication of HE3. I think there was reference io that in the paper by Danabalan, someone whom I think writes something once and you need to read it three times to keep up.
I don't think we would get those readings on HE3 anytime soon, if the GeologLight gas spec is anything to go by.
Anyway thanks Scott , I had intended an early night which but now.....great share , my favorite post of all time.
Absolutely HE1 face transportation challenges. But clearly not insurmountable. After all HE1 finds it way across the globe already. I did read those Iso storage trucks cost around 500k and only four manufacturers in the world. That was in a 2012 report, not that they would buy them but it would reflect hire costs. DME have ordered that plant early as a chunck of the time is manufacturing the prefab plant I wonder. Could it also be that in comparison costs are larger on that front, smaller on labour and perhaps less regulations to meet, that said labour doesn't look huge.
A 40KM pipe transporting helium through during 40c weather in and out of farm sand mountains isnt a simple question Baker, I'm sorry. I get the impression you infer someone was pulling a fast one by not mentioning this and therefore Helium was far from producible? I may be misreading that and perhaps should give the benefit of the doubt? P.S Helium1 big push is ecologically sound Helium. No hydrocarbons or minimal rather.
