|World helium resources and the perspectives of helium industry development|
|The data on helium production in the world, its scales and the major countries–helium producers are presented.
Particular emphasis is placed upon the composition of helium-contented natural gases. World helium reserves related to helium resource quality are estimated as of 2009.
It is shown that helium main resources (reserves) are located in natural gases of Russian Siberian platform and in gases of the Midcontinent region and Rocky Mountains in the USA.
Helium resources are also present in small quantities in other countries.
Particular attention is given in Russia to the necessity of taking steps to protect high-qualitative gas-helium resources from losses during fuel processing or exporting
Eastern Siberia natural gases in which helium is present as a < 1% component.
Key words: helium, gases with high content of helium, helium sources, consumption volumes, helium resources, helium-gas-storage.
