Helium Summit 2018

Transitioning To Life Beyond The BLM

Marriot Marquis, Houston, Texas, US, 3rd - 4th October, 2018

Under the theme Transitioning to Life Beyond The BLM, gasworld’s Global Helium Summit 2018 provided insight into the major issues facing the global helium business, including: the declining capacity of the US Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Helium Pipeline, the coming privatisation of the BLM’s helium assets and the anticipated emergence of Gazprom as a major player in helium markets.

A wide-ranging agenda featured presentations from key industry executives and thought leaders that helped participants assess the impact of the important changes facing the helium business.

The event, which took place at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Houston, Texas from 3rd – 5th October (2018), also provided an unrivalled opportunity to network with a veritable “who’s who” in the global helium business.
