Johannesburg - Energy and chemicals company Sasol [JSE:SOL] has appointed a contracting and engineering company for its tetramerisation plant in Louisiana in the US, it said on Monday.

S&B Engineers and Constructors has been selected to build the ethylene tetramerisation plant at Lake Charles, Louisiana.

The plant will use Sasol's proprietary technology to convert ethylene to 1-octene (used as a plasticiser) and 1-hexene (which is used as a chemical intermediate and for resins, drugs and insecticides).

Sasol senior group executive Andre de Ruyter said the project is targeted for start-up in mid-2013.

"We are committed to providing Sasol and the local community a safe working environment and a world class project", said James Slaughter, president of S&B Engineers.
