Probably more to do with the surge in oil stocks in the US...up 3.3 MMB opposed to a general analyst expectation of a 3.5 MMB drop.
Whether this has a good explanation or not there will be some pressure on WTI over the next few days.

Qatar Shuts Off Helium Plants

The two plants have a combined annual production capacity of approximately 2 billion standard cubic feet of liquid helium and can meet about 25 percent of total world demand for the gas, according to RasGas' website.

Among its uses, helium is used to cool superconducting magnets in medical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners, as a lifting gas in balloons and airships, as a gas to breathe in deep-sea diving and to keep satellite instruments cool. It is derived from natural gas during processing.
