CPC denies shed closure reports

Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) denied the media reports which said that nearly 300 filling stations are being closed down on a daily basis due to fuel distribution related issues. Issuing a press release, the CPC yesterday said that it is carrying out the distribution of fuel to island-wide filling stations in full capacity through the Kolonnawa and Muthurajawela terminals and Sapugaskanda refinery.

In addition to the CPC owned bowsers and private bowsers are also being used for this purpose in order to ensure a continued supply, the corporation said. Meanwhile, the Corporation has extended the time given to the filling station owners to deposit money for the purchased fuel till 10.30 p.m. with effect from Monday (5).

Currently, the CPC is distributing around 4,000 metric tonnes of diesel and 3, 000 metric tonnes of petrol from the Kolonnawa and Muthurajawela terminals to the filling stations on a daily basis.
