According to Abraham-James, the helium concentration was measured at 12.4%, which is higher than forecasted and roughly 30 times the industry standard for commercial helium.

Everybody loves helium, and we're getting more of it, baby!

A supply and production problem, I think. The end-result of complete privatization of the industry in the 90s.

Odd. There were a lot of confident statements from industry reps at that time pledging they could provide more, cheaper, and no one had to worry. That was my recall from a science magazine article from the 90s.

I think they also botched the sell-off of the reserve.

But Allah looks after us.
