This article reports that Sasol has completed a symbolic journey from South Africa to Qatar using a series of gas-to-liquid (GTL) powered cars. The team battled the dock and the toughest African terrain as they raced to get to Qatar in time for the official opening of the $950m Oryx GTL plant in Ras Laffan. On reaching Qatar, the team of 12 men and women released new details on the emissions from the GTL-fuelled vehicle, compared with one of the conventional diesel vehicles that also made the journey.
