A crude oil leak has occurred in one of the conveyor pipes carrying crude oil from the Colombo port to the Kolonnawa oil storage terminal.

According to the Media Spokesperson of the Kolonnawa oil storage Terminal Nishshanka Jayawardhana the leak is said to have occurred adjacent to the Naval Sports Complex located at Vihara Mawatha, Meethotamulla.

He also noted that repairs on the ruptured pipe line were already underway.

This is the second occasion that a leak has been reported from the same pipe line during the course of a week.

However the pumping of oil from the Colombo port to the Kolonnawa oil storage facility has been temporarily suspended owing to repairs.
