Sasol has chosen Japan-based Mitsui Engineering &
Shipbuilding Co. to provide front-end engineering and design
(FEED) services for a 420,000 tpy low-density polyethylene
(LDPE) plant in Louisiana, the companies said on Monday.
The project is part of Sasols
planned world-scale ethane cracker and derivatives complex to
be established in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
ExxonMobil Chemical was selected by Sasol as the
licensor for this LDPE project.
Mitsui noted that it has considerable experience with
ExxonMobil's technology. It says
that experience led to the selection of Mitsui as the
