Mar 21, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Board of Investment (BOI) responding to a Reuters report which said the Oman's oil ministry denied being part of a $3.85 billion plan to build an oil refinery in Hambantota, clarified the status of the investment in the project.

Sri Lankan officials said Oman oil ministry and Silver Park International PTE Ltd - a Singapore investment vehicle owned by India's Accord Group had agreed to build the 200,000 barrel per day refinery near Hambantota port.

"We refer to the recent Reuters news report with regard to the above project.

" "However, we are aware that Oman Oil Company has registered their firm intention to participate in equity up to 30%, subject to reaching agreement between the parties.
