Vitter Congratulates Sasol on Final Investment Decision for Ethane Cracker, Says Will Be Part of Economic Boom for Southwest Louisiana

(Lake Charles, La.) – U.S. Sen. David Vitter today congratulated Sasol Limited, an energy and chemical company, on their final investment decision on their $8.1 billion ethane cracker and derivatives complex at its existing site in Calcasieu Parish. Sasol says an additional $800 million will be invested in infrastructure, utility improvements and land acquisition that will enable future growth in the area. Recently, Vitter helped to secure a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to allow Sasol to begin constructing their gas-to-liquid (GTL) facility at the same site.
