Sasol hedges 45 000 barrels per day of its South African synthetics fuels       
Sasol today, is pleased to announce that it has entered into hedging            
transactions (zero cost collars) for 45 000 barrels of oil per day (equivalent  
to approximately 30% of its South African synfuels production) for its 2008     
financial year, which commences 1 July 2007.  In terms of this hedge, Sasol has 
achieved an average floor price of USD62,40 per barrel (based on monthly average
dated Brent crude oil prices) on the hedged portion of production, and          
conversely Sasol will forego the upside on the hedged volumes, should the       
monthly average dated Brent price exceed USD76,80 per barrel.                   
The zero cost collar structure is similar to the oil price hedging concluded for
the 2007 financial year, when a floor price of USD63,00 per barrel was achieved 
and upside was limited to USD83,60 per barrel, also on 45 000 barrels of oil per
day. Appropriate disclosure of this hedging will also be made in our 2007 annual
report and Form 20-F.                                                           
Forward-looking statements: In this announcement we make certain statements that
are not historical facts and relate to analyses and other information based on  
forecasts of future results not yet determinable, relating, amongst other       
things, to exchange rate fluctuations, volume growth, increases in market share,
total shareholder return and cost reductions. These are forward-looking         
statements as defined in the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform 
Act of 1995. Words such as "believe", "anticipate", "intend", "seek", "will",   
"plan", "could", "may", "endeavour" and "project" and similar expressions are   
intended to identify such forward-looking statements, but are not the exclusive 
means of identifying such statements. Forward-looking statements involve        
inherent risks and uncertainties and, if one or more of these risks materialise,
or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may be very    
different from those anticipated. The factors that could cause our actual       
results to differ materially from such forward-looking statements are discussed 
more fully in our most recent annual report under the Securities Exchange Act of
1934 on Form 20-F filed on 2 November 2006 and in other filings with the United 
States Securities and Exchange Commission. Forward-looking statements apply only
as of the date on which they are made, and Sasol does not undertake any         
obligation to update or revise any of them, whether as a result of new          
information, future events or otherwise.
