Sasol delays part of new cracker

March 14, 2016 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 94, ISSUE 11

Sasol says start-up of some of the derivative units in its $9 billion ethylene complex now under construction in Lake Charles, La., will be delayed a year, until 2019. The South African company says cost control will remain a top priority given the “uncertain economic environment.” Sasol cited the impact of low oil prices in its previous decision to put a gas-to-liquids facility adjacent to the cracker on hold. A detailed review of the cracker cost and schedule is expected to be released by midyear.
