Royal Helium Commences Engineering Study for a Helium Polygeneration Facility in Saskatchewan
November 12, 2020
SASKATOON, SK, Nov. 12, 2020 /CNW/ - Royal Helium Ltd. ("Royal" or the "Company") (TSXV: RHC) is pleased to announce that the engineering and scoping study (the "Study") for a large-scale industrial gas polygeneration facility, located in Saskatchewan, has been initiated by Royal and will be conducted by the Saskatchewan Research Council ("SRC"). The Study is Royal's first step in determining the economic potential of a large-scale facility for the separation and monetization of the gas streams associated with helium production wells in Saskatchewan.
Andrew Davidson, President and CEO of Royal states: "In Saskatchewan, helium is coproduced with large flows of other inert gases for which there is a large and established North American and global market. Royal is now reviewing whether there is an opportunity to monetize the complete gas stream. Currently, our economic analysis does not include credits for other potentially commercial gases produced and processed. While the economics of helium production are significant on their own, the impact of the commercialization of other gases could substantially add to net cash flow.".
The results of this initial engineering and economic study are anticipated to be received in December of 2020.
