TSXV: HELI    OTCQB: FHELF    FRA: 2MC

Reports Average Daily Oil Production of 520 BBL/D Over Last Five Days

First Helium Inc. ("First Helium" or the "Company") (TSXV: HELI) (OTCQB: FHELF) (FRA: 2MC), today announced that it has received $1.2 million for light oil volumes that the Company delivered for sale during the month of April. Cash flow from the light oil sales will continue to be deployed to help fund the Company's ongoing helium exploration and development activities at its 100% owned Worsley Property, and the Southern Alberta ( Lethbridge ) Lands.

During the month of May, the Company produced approximately 272 barrels per day ("bbl/d") and delivered approximately 8,200 barrels of light oil for sale, down from previous months and from expected production capability. The lower volume was a result of down-time related to a number of seasonal factors that included: inclement regional wet weather at the Company's oil battery location, road use restrictions and limited access due to overland flooding. During the down-time, the Company took the opportunity to complete some required regulatory testing and reporting requirements and to optimize its oil battery operations.  In late June, the Company expects to receive approximately $700,000 for oil volumes delivered during May.

"While periods of combined precipitation and spring run-off limited our ability to produce and truck oil volumes at normal capacity during late April and May, we are pleased that we were able to use the unscheduled down-time to optimize the configuration of the two-well oil battery and perform some necessary operations to meet regulatory reporting requirements," said Ed Bereznicki , President & CEO of First Helium. "We are also pleased to report that our two-well battery has returned to routine operation with daily production volumes averaging approximately 520 bbl/d of light oil over the past five days and that we have taken remedial steps to help mitigate future production down-time associated with limited road access to the battery," added Mr. Bereznicki.

The Company is finalizing necessary preparations to begin drilling the first of its two recently announced helium targets in July, dependent on satisfactory weather-related field conditions. As with the Company's 15-25 helium discovery well, which includes associated volumes of natural gas and natural gas liquids, First Helium intends to market any associated surplus hydrocarbon volumes included in any new helium discovery wells to capitalize on the current robust outlook for natural gas and liquids pricing, and maximize cash flow in support of further growth. First Helium's 79,000 acres along the Worsley Trend is highly prospective for both helium and natural gas. Historical exploration and development drilling on the trend has encountered rich helium concentrations ranging from 0.5% to 1.9% in a number of formations.

Led by a core Senior Executive Team with diverse and extensive backgrounds in Oil & Gas Exploration and Operations, Mining, Finance, and Capital Markets, First Helium seeks to be one of the leading independent providers of helium gas in North America .

Building on its successful 15-25 helium discovery well at the Worsley project, the Company has identified numerous follow-up drill locations and acquired an expansive infrastructure system to facilitate future exploration and development of helium across its Worsley land base.  Cash flow from its successful oil wells at Worsley will help support First Helium's ongoing helium exploration and development growth strategy.

First Helium holds over 79,000 acres along the highly prospective Worsley Trend in Northern Alberta , and 276,000 acres in the Southern Alberta Helium Fairway, near existing helium production. In addition to continuing its ongoing exploration and development drilling at Worsley , the Company has identified a number of high impact helium exploration targets on the prospective Southern Alberta Helium Fairway lands to set up a second core exploration growth area for the Company.

Major Energy Projects to Watch in Australia in 2022

With increasing needs for energy, the generation and use of energy is one of the most important cornerstones in any economy or civilization today. Australia is investing hundreds of billions of dollars into major energy projects — investments that will supply the energy for a brighter future.

Coal features prominently in the Australian economy and in the energy sector in particular. It is the second-largest export in Australia, outdone only by iron ore. Natural gas also makes the list at number four.

The energy industry in Australia produces 2.4 percent of the world's energy. Of the energy generated in the country, three-quarters of it is exported — AU$80 billion dollars' worth. Naturally, given the prevalence of coal in its economy, Australia's energy consumption largely relies on coal.
