To mark the official opening of the ORYX GTL production facility, the Sasol Chevron GTL Challenge team successfully completed a journey from South Africa to Qatar. The team arrived in Qatar in time for the official opening of the facility, which will produce commercially available fuel late this year. The team, comprising of twelve men and women, showed the gas-to-liquid (GTL) fuel burned significantly cleaner than conventional diesel vehicles
that also made the trip. The GTL fuel results in a significant reduction in sulphur dioxide and carbon dioxide. The Sasol Chevron GTL Challenge team took over a month and a half to get from Sasolburg, South Africa, to Qatar. One of the team's vehicles, a Toyota
, was fuelled solely on GTL diesel
fuel, provided by Sasol's plant in Sasolburg.
