- Our hydrogen/helium commercial liquefaction bidding pipeline remains very active and we expect this trend to increase throughout the 2nd half of 2021
On June 4, Irkutsk Oil announced it would be constructing a 2nd helium facility.
Equipment deliveries are anticipated to be wrapped up by the end of 2022, with expected completion of commissioning and startup a year later.
