ExxonMobil licenses tubular process technology to Sasol

HOUSTON, US: ExxonMobil Chemical Technology Licensing LLC, an affiliate of ExxonMobil Chemical Company, has signed an agreement to license its tubular process technology to Sasol North America for a new low density polyethylene (LDPE) plant in Lake Charles, US. The new 420 thousand tonne per year plant is expected to be completed in late 2016.

“The performance of our LDPE plant in Sasolburg and the experience of working with ExxonMobil Chemical before, during and after that facility came online helped convince us that the ExxonMobil Chemical tubular process was also the best choice for our Lake Charles plant. The demonstrated performance of other ExxonMobil Chemical LDPE process licensees in plants with 400 thousand tonne per year capacities was another important factor in our selection,” said Mike Biesheuvel, Managing Director, Polymers International Investments, Sasol.
