Sasol Ltd. said Monday that there was no apparent damage to major process equipment, utilities or infrastructure after hurricane Laura made landfall near its chemical complex in Southwest Louisiana.

The South Africa-based petrochemical and energy company said it found only moderate wind damage to cooling towers and some insulation and building damage from the hurricane which made landfall on Aug. 27.

Sasol completed damage assessments of its chemical complex's 14 manufacturing facilities and associated utilities and infrastructure.

It added that regular employee work shifts have resumed, and that hired contractors have been working to expedite readiness for start up.
