Sasol"s Trading Statement                                                       
Sasol"s interim results for the half year ended 31 December 2004 will be        
released on 7 March 2005.                                                       
While the benefit of higher oil prices was more than offset by the impact of    
adverse currency effects, the performance of the chemicals portfolio was        
substantially better due to improved margins and heightened focus on core       
businesses. Shareholders are accordingly advised that on a comparable basis     
earnings per share for the six-month period ended 31 December 2004, are expected
to be approximately 45% higher than those of the previous corresponding         
reporting period. Headline earnings per share are expected to be approximately  
60% higher.                                                                     
Should prevailing exchange rates, oil prices and chemical margins continue, the 
earnings per share in the second half of the financial year should be more-or-  
less equal to those of the first half.                                          
The above information has not been reviewed and reported on by the company"s    
auditors.
