Praxair, Inc. (NYSE: PX) announced today that North West Upgrading Inc. (NWU), has selected Praxair Canada Inc., the largest industrial gas supplier in Canada, to provide the industrial gases needed for its heavy oil Upgrader in Sturgeon County, Alberta, Canada. North West’s process eliminates production of coke, uses gasification to make hydrogen from the heaviest components of bitumen, and enables the capture of pure carbon dioxide. Under the agreement, Praxair will build a large state-of-the art air separation plant, equipped with advanced process controls and energy-efficient process cycles.

“NWU is pleased to select Praxair as its partner for meeting its industrial gases requirement for this project," said Robert Pearce, Senior Vice President Corporate Development, North West Upgrading. “This signifies another important step in bringing
North West’s project to fruition.”

“We are proud to have been selected by NWU for this major project and are committed to
growing with and providing value to NWU and the Heartland,” said Rob Hossack, Managing Director, Praxair Canada Inc.
