Joint cabinet paper to be submitted on LNG plant

A joint cabinet paper is to be submitted on establishing a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) power plant, Minister of Petroleum & Petroleum Gas Chandima Weerakody said.

He said the joint cabinet paper will include him, Ports Minister Arjuna Ranathunga and Power and Energy Minister Ranjith Siyambalapitiya.

He said the cabinet paper will pave the way to expedite the process to make LNG available in Sri Lanka.

Weerakody said President Maithripala Sirisena had managed to convince India to establish a LNG power plant in Sri Lanka.

Last year Sri Lanka had proposed to India to fund a LNG power plant in Sampur instead of a coal power plant.

India had responded positively to the request. (Colombo Gazette)
