Another oil leak was reported in one of the pipelines at Meethotamulla carrying oil to Sapugaskanda Oil Refinery.

The leak from a pipeline that carries airline fuel between Sapugaskanda and Colombo Port was due to a blast on Sunday night, an official said.

He said that there was no major loss as the pipeline was not in use at the time of the damage. The residents around the area had been collecting the remaining oil that was leaking throughout the night.

On Oct 30 another pipeline carrying fuel from the Oil Refinery was damaged in Orugodawatta and it was repaired on Thursday. (Yohan Perera and Shantha Senavirathna)
