Over 1000 metric tonnes of petrol distributed to fuel stations countrywide: Petroleum authorities

The Ceylon Petroleum Storage Terminals Ltd said that 1,500 metric tonnes of petrol has been distributed to fuel stations countrywide.

Director General, Sanjeewa Wijeratne, said the decision to distribute the 1,500 metric tonnes of petrol was taken to avoid a depletion of fuel.

He added that the report on the stock of petrol which arrived in the country aboard the Lady Neveska Vesse, last night, will be released at 12 noon today.
