JOHANNESBURG, March 9 (Reuters) - Petrochemicals group Sasol (SOLJ.J) said on Monday the Oryx gas-to-liquid (GTL) plant in Qatar produced an average of 29,000 barrels per day in February, which was near its design capacity.

Lean Strauss Sasol's general manager also said he expects the group's GTL project in Uzbekistan to move to the feasibility stage by the end of June.

"Our average production in February was 29,000 bpd...we can say that we are now at around design capacity," said Strauss.
