South Africa’s Sasol announced that its $8 billion ethane cracker currently under construction in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana will be launched in 2019, a year later than planned, due to decreased profits caused by low oil prices, according to media reports.

The company is currently reviewing the costs and timing of the proposed new complex.

The complex will house a 1.5 million tons/year ethane cracker as well as six derivative manufacturing plants, including a 1.98 billion lbs/year (approximately 900,000 tons/year) PE plant.
