We operate offshore Block 11B/12B with a 50% interest. Located 175 kilometers off the coast of South Africa in water depths ranging from 200 to 1,800 meters, the block covers an area of about 19,000 square kilometers.

We also hold a Technical Cooperation Permit (100%, operator) in the South Outeniqua Block, in water depths of 400 to 4,000 meters.

We have a 36.36% interest in the Natref refinery in Sasolburg.

Through third parties, we market polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene and base chemical products, which are primarily sourced from our joint venture in South Korea.

We are also active in specialty chemicals through our affiliate Hutchinson (specialized in elastomers processing).

Through our SunPower affiliate (56,26%), we have long been active in South Africa, developing solar projects and locally producing photovoltaic panels at our plant.

Since 2016, our Prieska solar power plant (installed capacity of 75 megawatt-peak), located in the Northern Cape, has been supplying electricity to the equivalent of 70,000 households.

We are a committed participant in the home solar system rural electrification program through Kukhanya Energy Services (KES). So far, more than 30,000 rural, off-grid households have been supplied with kits.
