Linde Group Largest Producer of Helium Gas

MUNICH, GERMANY: Linde Gases, a division of The Linde Group, has shipped the first container from its newest helium source, Helium II, operated by Ras Gas at the Ras Laffan Industrial City in Qatar. Linde has secured long term rights to 30 per cent of the output from this latest and largest helium source in the world.

Linde is investing over €35 million in new containers to supply the additional helium from Helium II and its expanded source in Skikda, Algeria. Linde is also investing to expand its transfill and container staging facility in the Jebel Ali Free Zone in Dubai to accommodate the growth.

“Due to its unique properties, relative scarcity and global supply chain, helium is one of only a few industrial gases with a truly global market. We have therefore strengthened our supply base in Qatar building on our long-term commitment with the first plant there in 2005. Helium II further reinforces Linde’s position as having the most diverse helium sourcing portfolio in the industry, including sources in Algeria, Australia and the US,” said Steve Penn, Global Head of Merchant and Packaged Gases, Linde Gases Division.
