Helium rich Navajo Nation gas produced by Capitol Operating Group has begun flowing to and being processed and sold at the Lisbon Valley Gas and Helium Processing Plant in southeast Utah.
Capitol Operating Group is among the largest producers of helium in the 4 Corners area. This achievement was made possible by the completion of a new pipeline connection by Paradox Resources, which unlocked bottlenecks impeding the Navajo Nation’s access to the Lisbon Valley Gas and Helium Processing Plant.
“The completion of this highly strategic pipeline connection was made possible by the continued support of the Navajo Nation and Navajo Minerals Department for which we are thankful,” said Todd A. Brooks, Paradox Resources’ chairman and CEO.
In conjunction with connecting the resources of the Navajo Nation to the Lisbon Valley Gas and Helium Processing Plant, Paradox Resources is continuing to advance the helium optimization and automation initiatives already underway at its Lisbon Valley Gas and Helium Processing Plant as it continues to expand the company’s midstream system.
“Paradox Resources can process and sell the highest quality, purified and liquified helium, which is in short supply globally and is a critical element for the semiconductor, medical, research, space, and defense industries. The company’s Lisbon Valley Gas and Helium Processing Plant is one of only eight material helium liquefiers in the US, representing 7% of total North American helium liquefaction capacity,” explained Brooks.
