sasol ltd (SAOA) Key Developments

Sasol Plans to Build USD 11 Billion Gas-to-Liquids Facility in the US

Sasol shelved plans to build a USD 11 billion gas-to-liquids (GTL) facility in the US, in response to the fall in oil prices. The South African energy major announced in 2012 that it would build a 96,000 bbl/d facility at its existing site in Lake Charles, Louisiana, to convert cheap shale gas into vehicle fuel, lubricants and high-value chemicals. With oil prices weakening in recent months, so has the sense of processing gas rather than crude into fuel. When the project was first announced, a barrel of oil cost around 40 times more than a million British thermal units of gas. Today, oil is just 17 times more expensive. Sasol says the ratio must be at least 16 for its project to be economically viable. Sasol has stressed that the project isn't cancelled, only delayed, giving it time To evaluate the possibility of phasing in the project in the most pragmatic and effective manner. Its plans to build a 1.5m t/y ethane cracker at the site will continue as planned. The USD 8 billion facility will produce ethylene and various derivatives and is set to begin operations in 2017. The delay on the GTL facility is in line with a raft of cost-saving measures including job losses and capital spending cuts announced by firms in the oil and gas sectors in recent months. This has included oil services firm Halliburton laying off 11% of its 62,000 staff.

IDC Not To Sell Stakes In Listed Companies

Geoffrey Qhena, Chief Executive Officer of The Industrial Development Corporation of South Africa Limited (IDC) said that IDC will not sell stakes in the listed companies to raise funds to help in Eskom Holdings SOC Limited's cash crunch. Geoffrey further said that selling stakes in the listed investments will result into loss of income which is counter to IDC's objectives. The investments in listed companies provide money to IDC to fund new businesses. According to Barclays, government can raise upto ZAR 86 billion by selling stakes in 10 listed companies. IDC hold stakes in 8 of the 10 companies which are Sasol Ltd. (JSE:SOL), Kumba Iron Ore Ltd. (JSE:KIO), ArcelorMittal South Africa Limited (JSE:ACL), Sappi Limited (JSE:SAP), Life Healthcare Group Holdings Limited (JSE:LHC), Hulamin Limited (JSE:HLM), Merafe Resources Limited (JSE:MRF) and BHP Billiton plc (LSE:BLT). "A complete disposal is out of the picture. Out of the eight we are taking out nothing because they are key in the IDC’s life…. We have not been approached by anyone," Geoffrey Qhena said.
