* Repairs of damaged buoy almost complete, Ceylon Petroleum Corporation says
Thu, Jul 10, 2014, 09:44 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

July 10, Colombo: Sri Lanka's petroleum authority, Ceylon Petroleum Corporation said 90 percent of the repair work of a buoy damaged last week has been completed by this afternoon.

A burst in the pipeline on the buoy last Friday (July 04) halted unloading of refined crude oil to the storage facility.

The buoy pumps oil from tanker ships in deep sea off Uswetakeiyawa in the north of Colombo port to the Muthurajawela oil storage facility.

A similar damaged buoy resulted in the temporary closure of Sri Lanka's sole oil refinery at Sapugaskanda on June 25.

Unloading of two ships of crude oil which are anchored in Colombo port was suspended earlier due to leaks in the pipeline from the buoy to the storage tanks.

However, the damaged buoy and the suspended operations in the refinery did not incur any fuel shortage in the country.
