Big Tech may be in for a major crisis in the coming months, all because of a global shortage virtually nobody’s talking about.
And it has nothing to do with the shortages we’ve seen worldwide in everything from computer chips to lumber to chicken wings.
This supply squeeze runs far deeper and has the potential to crush major blue-chip companies if the situation doesn’t dramatically improve soon.
That’s because Big Tech companies like Amazon, Alphabet, Facebook, and Netflix all depend on this one gas to keep their servers up and running around the clock.
Helium – which is both abundant, yet extremely rare – has unique properties that make it the perfect fit for creating the technology that’s become a part of our daily life.
It’s responsible for helping create today’s cars, bringing you high-speed internet cables, and even building the device you’re reading this on right now.
The health sector is in desperate need of this gas too since it’s needed to cool the magnets inside of MRI machines.
In fact, it’s such a crucial piece of so many different industries that helium has even been identified as one of 35 minerals deemed critical to the United States’ national security.
That’s why it’s so devastating that supply has taken a complete nosedive recently.
As a result, it’s caused the price of the rare gas to increase more than 3x in recent years… And it seems to be soaring higher by the day.

It’s also sent share prices parabolic for an average of 500% gains across these producers.
And Avanti Energy could be the next fast-mover after their latest potential discovery in the center of the world’s biggest helium market.
High-Grade Discovery Found in the Heart of Helium Country?
With the demand for helium continuing to rise and the world’s biggest supplier in the industry moving out, it’s created the perfect recipe for a boom for small helium producers.
Their world-class team just announced that they’re working to acquire the helium rights to approximately 62,000 acres of land in Montana.
The land stands in an area where surrounding wells have shown incredible findings, which points to the potential for big discoveries in the region.
Experts generally consider anything from 0.3% to 1% Helium percentages to be commercially viable.
But their neighbors have shown grades of up to 2% Helium and 96% Nitrogen in multiple targets nearby.
And now, Avanti Energy has discovered several closed structural highs reaching up to 170m of relief on the property for which they’re set to acquire a license.
After doing a detailed analysis of both the property and the surrounding area, they were so confident in what they saw that they offered to buy licenses for roughly 50,000 acres of land.
That makes it nearly 5x the size of their entire land portfolio before the acquisition of the license. And it speaks volumes coming from this team given their track record of major discoveries.
Several key members of Avanti Energy’s management team were responsible for spotting and developing Encana/Ovintiv’s Montney production.
As that discovery has produced over 300,000 boe/d over the past decade and a half, it’s become one of the largest natural gas discoveries in North America.
And now, with insiders buying more shares in Avanti Energy (TSXV:AVN; OTCMKTS:ARGYF) throughout the last two months, it suggests a high level of confidence in their prospects as they continue to grow their land portfolio.
But while many aren’t yet aware of the looming helium crisis, potential discoveries like these could be crucial for Big Tech and other major blue-chip companies in the near future.
Supply Squeeze Putting Big Tech in a Pinch
Avanti Energy’s recent announcement could have tremendous implications as we’re in the middle of the biggest supply squeeze we’ve seen in years.
And it’s all surrounding a chemical that the entire world relies upon as more and more of our world goes digital.
Without sufficient helium for these companies, it could mean no internet, no computers or cell phones, no computer chips for the latest vehicles, and no MRIs for those who desperately need them.
But today, the gas is running out with no replacement in sight. And it’s all about to get much worse in September.
For over seven decades, the US Federal Helium Reserve (FHR) has provided roughly 40% of the world’s helium supply.
The supply has been slowly dwindling for years… And in September, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is set to auction off the rest of the helium to the private markets.
That could send helium prices sky-high as it will lift the price ceiling that’s in place today…
This is why with helium demand now set to outpace supply until at least 2025, the race is on for junior helium producers to make new discoveries to even the score.
Adding to a Fast-Growing Land Portfolio
This is coming just a few months after they added another 9,500 acres across the border in Alberta, Canada.
Like the newest addition, this Canadian property also has promising data behind it and brings their total land holdings to over a massive 75,000 acres today.
But they’ve also identified roughly 20 more properties they may target across Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Montana over the coming months.
Avanti Energy has been on a tear adding up properties lately, and that gives them the potential to build a long-term pipeline of opportunities and projects.
Beacon Securities Limited has already stated they believe “critical mass has been achieved” for Avanti Energy today though.
And they’ve called this new property in Montana a key asset for the world-class team to begin exploration.
The acquisition will not close until the team completes their due diligence on the land and ownership.
The potential for this junior producer is incredible given the size of their holdings, but at the moment, shares are trading at less than $3.
And if results are positive for their upcoming exploration programs, they could play a key role in tackling the supply squeeze of the century as helium prices continue to rocket higher.
