CPC on petrol issue

The Ceylon Petroleum Corporation today quashed recent speculation that the current petrol sold in filling stations is contaminated with substandard petrol.

A CPC source told the Daily Mirror that petrol is being thoroughly tested and that the CPC has not sold any substandard petrol to filling stations since the substandard petrol controversy fuelled in June.

“We are collecting random samples from filling stations on a regular basis for testing purposes. The reports which state that we are selling substandard fuel are completely wrong,” the source said.

He said there are 3000 metric tons of petrol from the questioned shipment which still remains at the Kollonnawa storage facility. He said that the management will decide how the remaining substandard petrol will be managed after the completion of a committee report.

He said the CPC is currently analysing all data related to some 2000 complaints made by vehicle owners who suspected that their vehicles have been damaged by substandard petrol.

The source said that accordingly details including the vehicle number, details on the fuel station, the invoice from the filling station, invoice from the garage where the vehicle was repaired and other details have to be provided in order to verify those who have been victims of substandard fuel and to compensate them accordingly. The process will take another week to complete, he said.

He said the CPC is also handling some 400 complaints made to LIOC and CEYPETCO.
