Sasol achieves beneficial operation of first Lake Charles Chemicals Project production unit

Shareholders of Sasol are referred to the Company’s updated trading statement released on the
Stock Exchange News Service (SENS) on 8 February 2019, wherein the Company provided an
update on our Lake Charles Chemicals Project (LCCP) in Louisiana in the USA.

Further to this announcement, Sasol is pleased to announce that its new linear low-density
polyethylene (LLDPE) unit in Lake Charles achieved beneficial operations on 13 February 2019. This
is the first of the seven LCCP production units to come online.

This milestone follows the safe and successful commissioning of the steam system, which produced
first steam on 1 August 2018, a few weeks earlier than planned. Furthermore, all utilities to support
the early process units at LCCP were fully operational by the end of November 2018.
