Why Helium
As a noble gas Helium is not combustible and has properties that make it irreplaceable for industrial applications like fibre optic cables, data centres, semiconductor manufacturing, medicine / MRI machines, cooling & cryogenics. Helium is the second most abundant element in the universe but extremely rare on earth. Avanti is focused on developing large scale projects to extract Helium deposit trapped within the earth.

100 times more valuable than Natural gas.
Natural Gas $2-$5 per Mcf, Helium $200-$600 per Mcf

Global shortage, it’s estimated the supply will not keep up with the demand for the next 20 years

Canada has large reserves in the world. A handful of producers are extracting helium in Saskatchewan

Industry demand CAGR of 11% each year through 2037

Fastest Growing Uses

Medical Industry

Helium is mandatory for MRI machines which require 800 litres of Helium. Heliox mixtures in respiratory treatments.


Helium is the only element that can come close to reaching absolute zero.


High Speed Internet, fibre optic cables must be manufactured in a pure helium environment


Electronics & Semiconductors require helium to be used at different stages in the production process.

Fueling the High Tech Future

The Reactor Of The Future

Superconducting coils are cooled with helium They are used everywhere strong magnetic fields are needed.

Wendelstein 7-X, the world's largest stellarator device which is used to evaluate the main components of a fusion power plant, uses helium for cooling.

Helium Cooling Particle Accelerators

At the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), liquid helium also plays a central role.

It is cooling the superconducting magnets that keep particles on their track. CERN operates the biggest "refrigerator" in the world.

World’s Largest Dilution Refrigerator

Quantum computing relies on incredibly low temperatures.

Goldeneye is IBM's internal codename for the world's largest dilution refrigerator, which will house a future 1,000,000 qubit quantum processor. 

Fibre Optic Cable Manufacturing

After fiber-optic glass is drawn into fine strands, it is shielded with helium while the cladding is applied to prevent the newly formed glass surface from reacting with the contaminants present in ambient air.

Helium can also be used during the bubbling process for molten glass to improve refining since it has the fastest bubble rise time of any gas.

Where is Helium Found?

Helium is found by drilling wells, similar to natural gas. It is formed from radioactive decay of heavy elements like Uranium and Thorium

Helium can be trapped deep under hard nonporous rock where it cannot escape. Gravity can’t trap helium from escaping the atmosphere

Our focus is on helium-bearing non-hydrocarbon sources in Western Canada and Montana

Once helium is found it is purified by Cryogenic, Membrane or Pressure Swing Adsorption processes that can produce ultra-pure helium

U.S. Helium Production
The US is the world’s largest producer, accounting for roughly 40% of supply. However, the US National Helium Reserve in Amarillo, Texas, the world’s single largest source of helium for the past 70 years, is now exhausted. Where will the replacement helium come from?
Helium Stewardship Act Expires Sept 2021 requiring the BLM to auction off all remaining Helium Reserves. BLM’s exit from the market will eliminate the current price ceiling.
Canada is estimated to have the 5th largest Helium reserves in the world, and they are virtually untapped.

*Beacon Securities Analysis
Chart is preliminary as it can vary depending on a few factors:
An industry well nearby produced 55 mcf/d of helium from the Beaverhill Lake formation during June 2021. That well had 1.4% He in the raw gas stream, which is consistent with the data that AVN has provided.
Using those parameters as a starting point, the matrix provides a range of possible un-risked NPV10 values for the helium resource, based on wells that average 50 mcf/d IP30. We estimate that AVN would require between 10 and 100 wells to produce the 1-9 bcf of helium.

Helium Generation and Trapping Model
  1. Helium is generated by the decay of uranium and thorium in the basement rocks
  2. Once released from the source rock, helium can interact with formation water
  3. Formation water carries the dissolved gases as it ascends
  4. When the water contacts a pre-existing gas cap (containing methane or carbon dioxide), Helium partitions out into the gas cap.
  5. Helium concentration varies going up the stratigraphic rock column
