Ceylon Petroleum Corporation bans bulk sale of ‘Lanka Kerosene oil’

The Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CEYPETCO) today banned the bulk sale of ‘Lanka Kerosene oil’ which is red in colour as it is being used by some industries.

CEYPETCO said that Lanka Kerosene oil is issued to low income families and the fishing community yet some industries have been found to be purchasing Lanka Kerosene oil instead of the more expensive kerosene.

As a result the sale of Lanka Kerosene oil to commercial and industrial factories has been banned. (Colombo Gazette)
