New Era Helium Corp.’s Wholly Owned Subsidiary, NEH Midstream, LLC, Announces Long Term Helium Off-Take

Midland, Texas, UNITED STATES

MIDLAND, Texas, Sept. 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NEH Midstream LLC (“NEH” or the “Company”), a wholly owned subsidiary of New Era Helium Corp, is pleased to announce finalized sales off-take agreements for one hundred percent (100%) of the helium to be produced from its Pecos Slope Plant, a 20,000 MCF/D natural gas processing and helium purification plant that will be located approximately 20 miles north of Roswell, New Mexico. The Pecos Slope Plant, which is being built by Arjae Design Solutions of Nisku, Alberta, Canada is expected to produce an estimated 2.7 million standard cubic feet (MMscf) of high purity crude helium, as well as 477,000 MCF per month of methane and 32,545 bbls per month of natural gas liquids, estimated to begin on June 1st, 2024.

After completing a successful RFQ process, NEH finalized two (2) long term take-or-pay agreements for its helium. Fifty percent (50%) of the helium output will be sold in the form of bulk liquid helium to AirLife Gases USA, Inc., a wholly owned U.S. subsidiary of AirLife Gases Private Limited, a privately owned industrial gas supplier based in Pune, India.

The remaining fifty percent (50%) of the Pecos Slope Plant’s helium output will be sold in the form of high purity crude gaseous helium to a Tier 1 international gas supplier who is one of the leaders in the Global Helium Business. Combined, the two helium off-take agreements are expected to provide NEH revenue in excess of $118,000,000 over the life of the two agreements.

New Era’s CEO, Will Gray stated, “We are extremely pleased to have finalized long-term take-or-pay agreements for the entire output of helium that will be produced at our Pecos Slope Plant, with solid business partners and attractive commercial terms that are in line with recent industry transactions. Along with commissioning the plant from Arjae Design Solutions, this is another important step forward for New Era Helium’s business.” Gray further states” It is important to note that the $118,000,000 in helium revenues does not take into account any revenues associated with our methane, ngls, methane performance certificates, or excess electricity sales generated from our plant. This diverse revenue stream, in addition to providing our methane as a feedstock for various energy transition sources, is what differentiates our Company from our competitors. Not only are we pioneering the path towards Responsibly Sourced Helium™, we are further demonstrating how our operations and various produced products will serve as the gold standard for upstream helium operators.”

NEH was assisted in conducting its RFQ process for the sale of helium by Kornbluth Helium Consulting LLC.
