Axima Refrigeration France

There are only 12 helium production sites in the world, essentially located in the USA, Algeria and Australia. Axima Refrigeration France, a corporate member of the IIR, has supplied equipment to Qatar as part of one of the largest helium recovery units in the world. The helium comes from LNG production trains operated by Qatargas and RasGas in Ras Laffan Industrial City. Air Liquide, an IIR benefactor member, has selected Axima to handle helium compression and de-oiling. The overall helium purification and liquefaction unit has been installed by Air Liquide and delivers helium at -268°C ready for storage and shipping.
