Helium is extracted from natural gas, and all natural gas contains at least trace quantities of helium. The BLM is responsible for the management, conservation, storage, and sale of helium on Federal lands. Helium on Federal lands is reserved by law to the Federal Government. Federal oil and gas leases obligate the lessee to include provisions to pay for extracted Federal helium commingled in any gas sales contract. The Helium Operations program is administered by the Amarillo Field Office in Amarillo, Texas, under BLM's New Mexico State Office.

Reservoir = Helium storage reservoir shown in cross-section.

Gas Fields = Major gas fields of the U.S. with helium resources.
