Chevron, which has had a presence in South Africa for more than a century, said in January it would sell its 75 percent stake in its business in the country after making similar sales in Nigeria due to weak oil prices. “Sasol is working with Chevron and its advisers in this regard,” spokesman Alex Anderson said in an email to Reuters.
