Voyager Field development

Voyager gas processing agreement executed

Blue Star announced on 30 June 2023 that it had executed a MSA with experienced US midstream provider, IACX, for the provision of helium recovery services through the delivery and operation of a helium recovery plant at its maiden helium development at the Voyager prospect.

IACX is a fully integrated helium production, processing and marketing company. Its gas gathering and processing assets are concentrated in central Kansas, eastern New Mexico and the Texas Panhandle; and the company operates a number of standalone facilities across the Midcontinent and Four Corners areas of the US. It currently operates fourteen discrete helium recovery plants in seven states in the US and one Canadian province. One of the existing helium facilities is located in Las Animas County, Colorado, neighbouring Blue Star’s Galactica and Pegasus discoveries.

The execution process was thorough and included the appointment of a top tier reserves/resource auditor to evaluate the Voyager resource. The result of this process allowed Blue Star to mortgage the Voyager mineral leases as collateral to secure the required payments. The ability to post non-cash collateral is another affirmation of the potential resource as the Company moves forward with development.

From Fossil Fuels to Renewables: How the Energy Transition is Transforming the Oil and Gas Industry

The oil and gas sector has long been one of the Earth's largest and most valuable industries, but it's undergoing major changes to compete in the green energy transition and remain profitable.

At last year's COP28 summit, nations signaled a definitive shift away from fossil fuels, marking a potential "beginning of the end" for the era. While ambitious, the reality is more complex. Oil and gas aren't disappearing anytime soon — in fact, the industry is projected to rake in revenue of US$5.3 trillion in 2024, with daily consumption of 103 million barrels.

Indeed, petroleum remains the lifeblood of transportation systems, powering billions of vehicles, while natural gas heats a significant portion of the world's homes. At the same time, the industry's substantial environmental impact — accounting for 15 percent of energy-related emissions on a worldwide scale — cannot be ignored.

Helium Evolution Provides Operations Update and Announces Amendment of Stock Options

Helium Evolution Incorporated (TSXV:HEVI) (" HEVI " or the " Company "), a Canadian-based helium exploration company focused on developing assets in southern Saskatchewan, is pleased to provide an update regarding its Mankota helium discoveries.

The 9-18-3-8W3 well (" 9-18 Well ") stimulation is now anticipated to take place later in June or in July 2024. The delay is due to higher than normal rainfall in the Mankota area, which has impacted the surface conditions and postponed the start of the 9-18 Well stimulation.
