AUSTIN, US: Sasol, an international integrated energy and chemical company, has chosen Emerson Process Management, a global business of Emerson, for a comprehensive programme to automate its planned integrated gas-to-liquids (GTL) and world-scale ethane cracker complex in Lake Charles, Louisiana, US.

Sasol will invest $16 billion to $21 billion in the two facilities. When completed, the GTL plant will transform the region’s abundant low-cost shale gas into high-performance, low-emissions diesel and other transportation fuels. The adjacent ethane cracker and derivatives plant will convert ethane to ethylene and other downstream derivatives.

As main automation contractor, Emerson will provide the majority of the process automation technologies, engineering, and ongoing support services for the operations under a long-term agreement. Initial automation planning and engineering work begins immediately.

“We are excited to work with Sasol to bring these facilities online. This project will tap natural gas supplies to generate high-value products and help grow the economy. We will work hard to maintain the trust that Sasol has shown in our people, processes, and technologies,” said Steve Sonnenberg, President, Emerson Process Management.
