Sasol to build ethylene tetramerization unit in Lake Charles

December 06/2010

(Downstream Today) -- Sasol on Thursday announced plans to construct the world's first commercial ethylene tetramerization unit, capable of producing more than 100,000 metric tons per year of combined 1-octene and 1-hexene, at its Louisiana production site in Lake Charles.

This first-of-a-kind unit will be built in Southwest Louisiana and will be located inside Sasol's existing Lake Charles Chemical Complex. The tetramerization unit will expand the facility's workforce by nearly 10%.

Construction will commence in 2011, and the plant will reach beneficial operation in mid-2013.
