LONDON (ICIS)--Toyo has won a contract for work on Sasol’s planned 450,000 tonne/year linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) plant at Lake Charles, Louisiana, according to a statement by the Japan-based petrochemicals engineering firm on Friday.

As part of the contract, Toyo will provide front end engineering design (FEED) services for the project, it said.

Financial details or timelines for the project’s completion and start-up were not disclosed.

Toyo added that the contract marked “a strong foothold” towards penetrating the engineering market for shale gas-related projects in the US.

The LLDPE plant is part of a big expansion of Sasol's Lake Charles petrochemicals complex, which will include a gas-to-liquids (GTL) facility and a world-scale ethane cracker.
