“Orenburggazprom” LLC Helium Plant is one of the largest gas complex businesses for the extraction and processing of natural gas. The plant carries out purification of natural gas from mercaptan sulfur with simultaneous deep drying the moisture, and further processing of gas to produce the target components: helium, ethane fraction and liquefied petroleum gas. After being compressed, processed gas is directed to the main gas pipeline.

Due to a major accident at the Helium Plant, which occurred on August 21, 2004, several office and industrial buildings were affected, part of interplant communications was destroyed, including piping and cable lines.
