Sasol's Mozambique pipeline to deliver new gas soon

Dec 10, 2003 01:00 AM

The first gas will arrive at Secunda along Sasol's Mozambique pipeline early next year, with the pipeline already 95 % complete, the petrochemicals and synthetic fuels giant announced. The $ 1,2 bn project is running on schedule and within budget, and will enable Sasol's plant to be converted from a coal based feedstock into a more environmentally friendly natural gas-based operation.
"This project is being undertaken primarily as part of our corporate growth driver focused on exploiting new and viable upstream hydrocarbon opportunities," said Sasol also noting that the gas would provide new opportunities for its chemicals businesses.

"Some of the natural gas will be converted into synthesis gas, an important building block for the production of many of our portfolios of commodity, intermediate and speciality chemicals. Drilling of the gas production wells is well advanced with 6 of the 13 wells planned for the Temane field already completed.”
"Construction of the 865 km pipeline to Secunda is fast approaching completion, having reached the 95 % mark at the end of November 2003."
