• Blue Star Helium’s Oil and Gas Development Plan (OGDP) relating to four helium additional development wells at Voyager has been approved
  • On approval of the final Form 2s, BNL will have six helium wells approved for drilling
  • These wells make up the initial inventory from which Phase One development wells will be selected


Special Report: The Colorado Energy & Carbon Management Commission (ECMC) has approved the Oil and Gas Development Plan (OGDP) relating to four proposed helium development wells at Voyager.

Blue Star Helium (ASX:BNL) has been putting all its ducks in a row to bring its maiden development project, Voyager, into production during Q4, 2023.

The project is 6 miles from the historical Model Dome field in Las Animas Country, Colorado, which hosts amongst the top three highest helium concentrations in the world.

Achieving this goal will make Blue Star Helium one of the first ASX-listed primary helium plays to enter production, allowing it to tap into helium prices that have been floating towards the stratosphere due to a critical lack of supply.


Six development wells soon to be approved for drilling

With approval from the ECMC for another four wells in the bag, BNL is yet another step closer to its production goals.

The helium play plans to submit the final form 2s in respect to these wells shortly and on approval, will have six helium development wells approved for drilling at Voyager.

These wells, together with BBB 33#1 and 34#1, make up the initial inventory from which phase one development wells will be selected.


What’s next?

BNL plans to make a spud announcement shortly at BBB 33#1, where pre-drilling preparations have been completed.
