Helium Analysis

Helium, the lightest noble gas, serves as a tremendous asset to the world because of its unique thermochemical properties, such as an extremely low melting and boiling point, unreactive nature, and lifting capability. These properties allow helium to be useful in cryogenic technologies, pressurizing and purging systems, and lighter than air mechanisms.  Working with the Ohio State University, Enegis sampled helium produced from the Four Corners area on the Navajo Reservation for isotope analysis.  The goal is to understand the system for the genesis and emplacement of helium in order to use it in a predictive sense.  The work was funded through the Division of Energy and Mineral Development of the Department of the Interior.
