Secunda Synfuels Operations is one of the five Operating Hubs that forms part of the Southern African Operations and is a 100% owned facility which falls under the accountability of Francoise Malherbe. Secunda Synfuels Operations operates the world’s only commercial coal-based synthetic fuels manufacturing facility, producing synthesis gas (syngas) through coal gasification and natural gas reforming. We use our proprietary technology to convert syngas into synthetic fuel components, pipeline gas and chemical feedstock for the downstream production of solvents, polymers, comonomers and other chemicals.

Primary internal customers are Sasol Chemicals Operations, Sasol Exploration and Production International and other chemical companies. Carbon is produced for the recarburiser, aluminium, electrode and cathodic production markets.
