The Petroleum Corporation says that the refinery activities of the Sapugaskanda Oil Refinery will be temporarily put on hold for about 10 days from tomorrow.

CPC Managing Director L. E. Susantha Silva told our news team that as a result of the refinery not having received sufficient amount of crude oil, refinery functions would cease from tomorrow.

The Managing Director said that plans were under way for deploying Sapugaskanda Refinery employees during this period for several maintenance activities essential for the Refinery.

Currently the import of crude oil required for the Sapugaskanda Refinery has got delayed.

While the import of Iranian Light crude oil had been on the standstill due to the sanctions the US has imposed on Iran, this variety of crude oil is more appropriate for the Sapugaskanda Refinery.

The Ceylon petroleum storage terminal limited says that although the activities of the Sapugaskanda Refinery will be suspended the corporation has sufficient refined oil.

Media spokesman Nissanka Jayawardhana said further that oil stocks have by now been distributed island-wide according to requirements.
