Welcome to Creamer Media’s Resources Watch, a weekly video round-up of the events and people making and shaping the news in the mining industry.

This week:
Sasol repositions itself for a gas-based future.
Government, business and labour will grapple with the hostile labour climate an upcoming summit.
And, Sasol expects R4-billion in restructuring savings, without ‘forced’ job cuts.

South African energy and chemicals group Sasol has “strategically repositioned” itself over the past three years to focus on gas-based opportunities in Southern Africa and North America, having moved away from coal-to-liquids opportunities in China, Indonesia, India and South Africa.
