The Ceylon Petroleum Corporation states that another batch of substandard petrol which was imported to the country has been rejected. The Chairman of the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation, S. Amarasekara, speaking to News 1st said the stock of petrol was imported from Singapore a few days ago.

The ship carrying 30,000 metric tonnes of diesel and 10,000 metric tonnes of petrol, had arrived at the Colombo Port recently.

The CPC notes that while preliminary inspections revealed that the diesel was of a proper standard, the stock of petrol did not meet the requisite parameters. Thereby it was decided to accept the stock of diesel and reject the stock of petrol.

CPC Chairman S. Amarasekara noted that the Singaporean company from which the fuel was imported had been asked to provide a shipment of petrol to replace the sub-standard stock.
