The Ceylon Petroleum Corporation said that a sum of 30,000 US dollars has to be paid as delay charges for the oil tankers, following a rupture in the buoy carrying fuel from the Colombo Fort to Kolonnawa.

Chairman of the corporation A.G. Jayasinghe said that delay charges would have to be paid for six hours.

The oil tanker transported the crude oil from Singapore but a rupture in the buoy caused a delay in unloading the ships.

Previously Secretary to the Ministry Sudharma Karunarathne said that discussions were held with the respective companies to waive off the delay charges.
