The Ceylon Petroleum Corporation stated that the leak that was detected in a pipeline carrying fuel from tankers to the Muthurajawela terminal is currently being fixed.

Its Chairman, Dammika Ranathunga stated that it would take around 3 days to completely fix the leak.

Speaking to our news team, president of the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation branch of the Nidahas Sevaka Sangamaya, Bandula Saman Kumara stated that the pipeline was in need of repairs for the past six years.

The CPC noted that there will not be a shortage of fuel as the pipeline only carries furnace oil.

The Corporation further noted that although the furnace oil is used for the generation of electricity, there will not be any interruptions in the power supply either.

The CPC also noted that the Navy, Coast Conservation Department and the Marine Environment Protection Authority are taking measures to prevent possible pollution in the sea and the coast, arising from the oil leak.
