Natural Resource Partners LP Hosts Second Quarter 2022 Earnings Conference Call

“Drilling the 14-23 helium target provides us with the opportunity to take advantage of the contingent helium resource identified at 15-25,” said Ed Bereznicki , President and CEO of First Helium. “We are currently in the process of entering into helium gas sales agreements to help support the financing, fabrication, installation and commissioning of a single-well helium gas processing facility for 15-25, which is expected to start later this year,” Bereznicki added.

As with the Company’s helium 15-25 discovery well, which includes associated volumes of natural gas and natural gas liquids, First Helium intends to produce and market all associated excess hydrocarbon volumes. potential included in future discovery wells to capitalize on the current strong gas and liquids pricing outlook and maximize cash flow to support future growth. First Helium’s 79,000 acres along Worsley Trend hold great promise for 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

The Company’s latest press release dated July 11, 2022 , incorrectly stated that Well 15-25 was last tested in “December 2022”. It was recently tested in November 2021 to further confirm helium content and verify raw gas composition for process plant design considerations.

“Contingent resources” are not, and should not be confused with, oil and gas reserves. Further information regarding contingent resources can be found in First Helium’s final prospectus, dated June 28, 2021, filed on First Helium’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.

Led by a team of senior executives with diverse and extensive experience in oil and gas exploration and operations, mining, finance and capital markets, First Helium seeks to be the one of the main independent suppliers of helium gas in North America .

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

First Helium owns over 79,000 acres along the highly prospective Worsley Trend in Northern Alberta , and 276,000 acres in the Southern Alberta Helium Channel, 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 lands of the Southern Alberta Helium Fairway to create a second core exploration growth area for the Company.
