The Petroleum Trade Unions have requested President Mahinda Rajapaksa to mediate and solve the crisis of the Petroleum Corporation.

Secretary of Jathika Sevaka Sangamaya Ananda Palitha said that his union expects to make a written request to the President soon.

An off-shore hose which pumped crude oil to Sapugaskanda Refinery experienced a burst 100 feet under water one and half months ago.

The hose was repaired, but later, it experienced another burst thereby forcing the Corporation to temporarily stop operations of Sapugaskanda Oil Refinery.

In this backdrop, Secretary of Jathika Sevaka Sangamaya Ananda Palitha pointed out that the country would face a fuel scarcity due to the closure of Sapugaskanda fuel refinery.

Addressing a media briefing held in Colombo this morning, he said inefficiency in the part of the Petroleum Corporation management has been the main cause to all current crises.

However Petroleum Corporation Managing Director Susantha de Silva told our news team that there is no unsolvable problem within the corporation.

He also said that there would not be a fuel shortage as pointed out by trade unions.
