WESTLAKE, LA (KPLC) -

Sasol officials say that an information center for the company's voluntary property purchase program will be open Monday, Aug. 12.

Officials with the South African-based energy company said the center will be located at 3301 Old Spanish Trail in Westlake, according to a news release.

Officials said beginning Aug. 12, small group informational sessions will be held Monday through Friday at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

A reservation will be required due to limited seating.

Officials said reservations can be made by phone at (337) 310-8200 and at the information center starting Aug. 12.

Officials said property owners and tenants in the program area will have until Dec. 4 to register their interest in participating in the program.

Information about the program can also be obtained at www.sasolvppp.com

"Sasol announced plans for a voluntary property purchase program for residents in designated areas northwest and west of its existing facility in Westlake last month. The program will give eligible property owners and residents the option to sell their property to Sasol, and relocate to an alternative neighborhood, if they so choose. Sasol has appointed Community Interaction Consulting, Inc. (CIC), to administer the Program. CIC has more than 20 years of experience in administering best practice property purchase programs around the country," the release states.

"Sasol is committed to ensuring that the voluntary property purchase program is transparent, fair and addresses the needs and concerns of our neighbors," said Mike Thomas, Sasol Vice President for U.S. Operations. "The Program Information Center and website will help ensure eligible participants have the information and support they need to understand the features of the Program and how it will affect them so they can make informed decisions."
