"With regards to your comments on shale gas and Sasol. The comment seems to imply sasol are able to convert shale gas to oil, is this correct? Thanks again for your wonderful service."

Eoin Treacy's view Thank you for your kind words and this question which others may also find of interest. Yes, the Fischer/Tropsch conversion process allows Sasol to convert gas to diesel, naphta and gasoline. Here is a link to a presentation on their website which explains the process is some more detail.

An excellent report from Deutsche Bank, focusing on Sasol, was posted in Comment of the Day on November 10th and may also be of interest.
