LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa.,  Dec. 17, 2012  /PRNewswire/ -- Effective,  January 1, 2013,
or as contracts permit, Air Products (NYSE: APD) will implement pricing actions
for liquid and bulk helium in North America.  The on-going global helium
shortage has necessitated investments by Air Products and dramatically increased
the cost of its operations and inputs.  The pricing actions are being taken to
recover extraordinary costs that are being incurred by Air Products in order to
maintain reliable supply and secure new sources of helium for its customers.
