Helium is widely used in filling party balloons because of its density less than air and helium element is also a key material for nuclear magnetic resonance scanning and nuclear energy. Researchers at Oxford University and Durham University have discovered huge amounts of “world-class” helium field in the Great Rift Valley in Tanzania, with a preliminary estimate of 54 billion cubic feet of reserves of helium. Drilling exploration operations are expected to start in June or July next year, and by the end of 2020, helium from Tanzania will be used worldwide. This discovery is likely to change the “game rules” of the global helium resources.
