Sasol lets contract for Louisiana GTL plant

Sasol has selected Technip as the primary contractor for the front-end engineering and design (FEED) phase of its proposed gas-to-liquids (GTL) facility in Louisiana.

Sasol expects to conclude the FEED phase and reach final investment decision for the GTL project in 2016, the company said.

The estimated project cost is $11-14 billion, Sasol said. In December 2012, Sasol announced its intention to build a GTL plant adjacent to its existing site near Westlake, La. (OGJ Online, Dec. 3, 2012).

The GTL plant will be the first of its kind in the US and produce 4 million tonnes/year (96,000 b/d) of transportation fuel, including GTL diesel and other chemicals.
