Sasol Louisiana Projects
In December 2012, Sasol announced completion of two feasibility studies and a decision to move forward with the front-end engineering & design (FEED) phase for a world-scale ethane cracker and gas-to-liquids (GTL) facility at its Westlake site in Southwest Louisiana.
With an estimated total cost of between $16-$21 billion, these projects mark the largest single manufacturing investment in the history of Louisiana and also represent one of the largest foreign direct investment manufacturing projects in the history of the United States.
The two projects combined with create more than 1,200 permanent jobs, 5,000 construction jobs at peak construction and more than 50,000 indirect jobs across the U.S., with approximately half in Louisiana.
As the project progresses, it is Sasol’s goal to keep the community informed and updated through this website and other means.
