CPC says ship on the way with new stock of fuel in place of rejected diesel

Staff Writer

The Ceylon Petroleum Corporation says that it is expecting a ship carrying a replacement stock of fuel to arrive in Sri Lanka on Sunday, following the rejection of a stock of diesel brought into the country on a separate vessel.
CEYPETCO Managing Director, Susantha de Silva said that the stock of fuel brought into the country on Monday, which was imported from Singapore, was rejected as it did not fall within CEYPETCO’s accepted standards.
The vessel in question had brought in a stock of 40,000 metric tonnes of diesel to Sri Lanka.
