Sun, May 1, 2022, 11:11 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

May 01, Colombo: The Ceylon Petroleum Corporation states that the current shortage of kerosene will be resolved in a few days. A ship carrying crude oil has arrived in Sri Lankan waters and is expected to be released next week.

The Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) said that the Sapugaskanda oil refinery will be reopened after the release of the crude oil consignment.

The corporation also stated that it has to incur a loss of around Rs. 200 per liter of kerosene when importing kerosene at the prevailing price and supplying it to the consumers at subsidized prices.

Meanwhile a group of residents in Kotagala area has engaged in a protest in front of the Ceypetco petrol station in the area last night demanding kerosene.

After a few days the Kotagala Ceypetco filling station had received stocks of kerosene yesterday afternoon. According to a Neth News correspondent, there were long queues at the petrol station this morning to buy kerosene. However, the gas station received only 6,600 liters of kerosene and the people were agitated when the Ceypetco stateion took steps to issue kerosene worth only Rs. 500 per customer.
