About Sasol Exploration and Production International: SEPI develops and manages the group’s upstream interests in oil and gas exploration and production in Mozambique, South Africa, Canada, Gabon and Australia. 

SEPI is driving the development of Sasol’s upstream business to allow the group to meet its strategic objective of accelerating the growth of its proprietary gas-to-liquid (GTL) technology. In recent years, they have taken a number of steps to expand their global upstream portfolio, encouraged by the global abundance of natural gas and the rapid development of the shale gas industry, as well as the lower carbon intensity of natural gas. 

They are investing in ventures ranging from onshore and offshore conventional and unconventional shale and tight gas.
