The Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) has decided to unload the 25,000 metric tonnes of 90 octane petrol, which when tested for the second time was found compatible with Sri Lanka’s quality standards, Petroleum Minister Anura Priyadharsana Yapa said.

The minister told a media conference that the CPC had rejected 5,000 metric tonnes of 95 octane petrol after it was found that the stock was not up to our quality requirment.

A consignment of 40,000 metric tonnes including 10,000 metric tonnes of super diesel was imported from the Singapore-China Petroleum Company and arrived in the harbor a few days ago. (Chaturanga Pradeep)

    ASIYAWE ASCHARYA bad could be made in to good. No any other country is capable of it

    An engineering requirement is that if the results of two tests do not agree then there should be a third test to identify the rogue result.

    Oil won' t change colours overnight! So, if the first test was wrong and created the big bad news, should a head roll?

    The first time the proper 'machines' were not properly 'oiled' for the petrol to be passed. Now all good and all ok.

    MIRACLE !!! MIRACLE !!! WHEN TESTED SECOND TIME IN SRILANKA, WE CAN COVERT ANY SUBSTANDARD PRODUCT INTO STANDARD PRODUCT.

    ANTONTON Wednesday, 31 July 2013 08:07 AM

    NOW WHAT IS ACTUALLY SUBSTANDARD, PETROL OR CPC ?

    first time not good enough. Second time compatible. what a miracle. Looks like the chunk he got from the supplier was too big to refuse.

    OMG Wednesday, 31 July 2013 08:40 AM

    Good news.

    The correct palms have been oiled this time around.

    Nodrog Thursday, 01 August 2013 05:23 AM

    Something fishy! The oil is tested before loading and found to be up to standard. But on arrival its sub-standard. Theres a dirty hand in there somewhere.

    I think this is why not upgrading the refinery to make operational
