Sasol Gas, South Africa
Sasol Gas markets both natural and methane-rich gas, which are transported via a pipeline network to end-users.
It operates and maintains a gas supply network through 2,500km of pipeline, including the 865km cross-border pipeline linking the gas fields in Mozambique to the Sasol Gas network in South Africa.
The Sasol Slurry Phase Distillate Process TM (SPD) is at the core of Sasol’s GTL (gas-to-liquid) technology.
The three-stage process combines three leading proprietary technologies. Natural gas is combined with oxygen to form a syngas which is then subjected to a Fischer-Tropsch conversion, resulting in waxy Syncrude which is then finally cracked down to produce the end product.
