“This milestone safely brings our Lake Charles Chemicals project closer and sets the stage for the next step in the development of our chemicals business,” said Sasol President and Chief Executive Officer Fleetwood Grobler. “The completion of this unit and its imminent transition to our joint venture with Lyndelbasel will accelerate our transformation to a more specialized chemicals-focused company with a strong presence of base chemicals in our portfolio.”
