Our difference in action

Our earlier collaboration between Sasol and Topsoe showcases some of our market-leading technologies that are re-shaping industries.


Here’s a look at some of our earlier ground-breaking, world-scale projects:

ORYX GTL (Qatar):

32,400 barrels per day Gas-to-Liquids facility

A strong 49% Joint Venture with Qatar Energy

Leverages Sasol’s game-changing Low Temperature FT™ and Topsoe’s class-leading SynCOR™  technologies and catalysts

Successfully started up in 2006

Current production rates exceed design capacity

Escravos GTL (Nigeria)

33,200 barrels per day Gas-to-Liquids facility located in Nigeria

JV between Sasol and Chevron Nigeria Limited a Nigerian National Petroleum Company

Sasol’s Low Temperature FT and Topsoe’s SynCOR™ technology/catalyst deployed

Successfully started up in 2014

Sasol’s Sasolburg FT Wax Expansion (South Africa)

Wax expansion brownfields project in Sasolburg to increase hardwax capacity

Two new Sasol’s Low Temperature FT slurry phase reactors of 2,500 barrels per day added in two phases, replacing 5 fixed bed reactor

Topsoe’s SynCOR™ technology/catalyst deployed

Fully operational – full design capacity was achieved in 2017

Uzbekistan GTL (Uzbekistan):

38,000 barrels per day Gas-to-Liquids facility

Powered by Topsoe’s revolutionary SynCOR™ technology

Enhanced with Sasol’s cutting-edge Low Temperature FT™ technology

These projects are testament to the successful collaboration of Sasol and Topsoe deploying first-of-its kind technologies. This legacy paves the way for our new JV to develop world-scale projects to produce sustainable aviation fuel.  


At Zaffra, we're not just reimagining the future; we're going beyond to re-shape it for the better.
