JOHANNESBURG – Sasol delivered production volumes in line with guidance for the year ended 30 June 2021 despite the challenging operating environment.
Volumes in the Chemicals business were lower due to the previously reported divestments in North America alongside an adverse impact from weather events in both North America and South Africa. This was offset by higher average chemical basket prices which helped to deliver an increase in revenue for the financial year.
The Energy business benefitted from a strong recovery in demand following the easing of lockdown restrictions, and higher oil prices in the second half of the financial year.
The production and sales metrics are available on the Company´s website, under the Investor Centre section: https://www.sasol.com/investor-centre/financial-reporting/business-performance-metrics
