Site visit - Feb 2015

Sasol hosted an investor visit on 2 February 2015 to its US ethane cracker and derivatives project at its Westlake facility in Lake Charles, Louisiana. On 27 October 2014, the company announced that it had taken a final investment decision to construct an 8,1 billion dollar ethane cracker and derivatives complex at its existing site in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Once commissioned, this world-scale petrochemicals complex will roughly triple Sasol´s chemical production capacity in the United States, enabling Sasol to further strengthen its position in a growing global chemicals market. The U.S. Gulf Coast´s robust infrastructure for transporting and storing abundant, low-cost ethane was a key driver in the decision to invest in America.
