COLOMBO (NewsRadio); The Sapugaskanda Oil Refinery is scheduled to resume operations next week.
The refinery suspended operations several weeks ago due to the lack of crude oil.
A spokesperson of the Ministry said preparations are underway to resume operations at the Refinery on the 15th of December.
Two crude oil shipments containing over 200,000MT of crude oil have been unloaded while another shipment is also expected to arrive in Colombo shortly.
Accordingly, refinery operations are set to resume next week after a lapse of two months.
