JOHANNESBURG, Dec. 17,2013 /PRNewswire/ -- On 8 November 2013, Sasol's (JSE:
SOL, NYSE: SSL) partner, Talisman Energy Inc (Talisman), announced that it had
reached an agreement to sell part of its Montney acreage in northeast British
Columbia to Progress Energy Canada Ltd (Progress Energy) for a total cash
consideration of CDN$1,5 billion.

In terms of Sasol's existing agreement with Talisman, Sasol has a right to
match the Progress Energy bid, also known as a right of first refusal, within
