Sasol, the world's biggest producer of motor fuel from coal
Sasol, the world's biggest producer of motor fuel from coal, is negotiating with Iran's government over the construction of a gas-to-liquid fuel plant, South Africa's foreign minister said.
"Negotiations between Sasol, PetroSA and the Iranian government for a gas-to-liquid plant in Iran are far in advance," Foreign Minister Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma told journalists in Pretoria on Monday.
Sasol is considering building two coal-to-fuel plants in China at a cost of $5 billion each. It may expand its coal and gas-to-fuel production in South Africa by 20 percent over the next 10 years and plans to complete a gas-to-fuel plant in Nigeria and expand one in Qatar and Mozambique.
