SASOL AND AFROX SIGN R300 MILLION LPG AGREEMENT                                 
African Oxygen Limited (Afrox) and Sasol have signed an agreement in which Sasol
will supply Afrox with liquid petroleum gas (LPG) in a contract worth R300      
million over the next three years.                                              
The agreement follows the expiry of the oil industry agreement at the end of    
last year.  This enables Sasol to supply petroleum products direct to the       
market.                                                                         
Afrox chief executive, Rick Hogben, says, "We have always enjoyed an excellent  
relationship with Sasol.  One of our carbon dioxide plants, for example, is     
situated on their Sasolburg site where we purify a stream of raw carbon dioxide 
and market it.  We also supply Sasol with their cylinder gases and welding      
products requirements and we have commissioned on-site stores at Sasolburg and  
Secunda, to ensure superior service levels.  It is pleasing now to conclude an  
agreement where Afrox is a meaningful customer."                                
Sasol chief executive, Pieter Cox, says, "We are pleased to welcome Afrox back  
as a long term liquid petroleum gas customer and are presently entering new     
agreements with other South African petroleum industry role players. Afrox was  
one of our first customers after the start-up of the Synfuels plant in Sasolburg
in the 1950"s and is a valued customer and supplier."                           
Afrox has retained its other service agreements to source LPG from all          
refineries in South Africa to provide its large base of industrial and consumer 
LPG users.                                                                      
Afrox supplies LPG under its Handigas brand in bulk to customers requiring large
volumes and in various sizes of low-pressure cylinders for customers requiring  
smaller quantities.
