The removal of the debris of the X-Press Pearl, that reported a fire onboard while in Sri Lankan waters, has been planned for the last week of October or the first week of November.
The removal of the debris in the seabed will be carried out under the terms and conditions of the Marine Environment Protection Authority.
Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa instructed the Marine Environment Protection Authority to calculate the damage caused to the environment, including reassessing the damages including other costs.
The X-Press Pearl caught fire on the night of the 24th of May in Lankan waters.
A team of 40 field experts have been appointed to assess the environmental damage.
The Marine Environment Protection Authority said the final report on the environmental damage will be submitted before the 30th of November.
