Desert Mountain Energy powers up the Mccauley Helium Processing Facility

DESERT MOUNTAIN ENERGY CORP. has announced that it has completed high-pressure testing of all the processing facility components and has powered up the facility through the compressed natural gas (CNG) generators. The McCauley Helium Processing Facility will transition to solar energy upon the arrival of the battery storage units.

DME has identified a few items which could possibly affect processing during elevated summer temperatures. GENERON is resolving this by fabricating the appropriate pieces and installing them within 10-14 days to resolve any issues.

We are pleased with the excellent job performance and on-site fabrication services that our installation crews did for us since taking delivery of the plant,” said Robert Rohlfing, CEO of Desert Mountain Energy Corp. “Working through the final details on a project that is this complex is time-consuming but necessary.

Extreme winter conditions required extra diligence during welding and other operations performed in the open desert. Pass ratings required X-raying all welds to detect any defects like porosities, cracks and inclusions. The Company made the decision to go above the normally accepted practices in order to ensure years of uninterrupted operation and minimum maintenance. DME anticipates it will continue to work through various throughput, gaseous chemical mixtures and final product purity levels over the 90-day optimization program.
