Sasol managers are to visit India this month as part of the company’s plans to develop its coal-to-liquids (CTL) synfuel operations overseas.
The company, which operates the world’s biggest CTL plant, a 160 000 bbl/day facility in Secunda, South Africa, is eyeing India and also the US as the next potential markets for its CTL technology.
Sasol has already completed the pre-feasibility study on two potential 80 000 bbl/day CTL plants in China and is in talks on developing the next stage. A provisional start-up date for at least one plant has been scheduled for 2011.
Sasol management also held talks with Canadian energy firm Cash Minerals last month towards using Sasol technology to develop its coal deposits in Yukon, Canada.
