  Sasol plans to drill in Papua New Guinea in 2009

Sasol Ltd. acquired 51% equity in four exploration areas in Papua New Guinea (a total area of 37,000 square kilometers) in August 2008. Sasol announced that it will begin block drilling for natural gas in Papua New Guinea by the end of 2009. Sasol's vice president Martin Waterhouse also noted that Sasol will continue to expand its operations through strategic partnerships, similar to the partnership with Papua Petroleum Limited that will make operations in Papua New Guinea possible. Sasol has shifted its business model from securing and refining gas and liquid fuels mainly in South Africa, Mozambique, and West Africa, to exploring and drilling for natural gas. Increased natural gas production in Papua New Guinea is a major step in Sasol's growth as a natural gas supplier.

  Sasol hedge strategy insulates against oil downturn

Oil has declined 70% from its high in the summer of 2008. Sasol hedges about 30% of its oil production, which in effect locks in revenues when the price of oil is above $228/barrel and below $90/barrel. The hedge protects revenue while Sasol engages in heavy capital expenditure, which will amount to a planned R15 billion in 2009-2010.
