While advising consumers to refrain from resorting to unverified testing methods like soap test to determine leaks, the Litro Gas Lanka said in all instances where people complain about LPG leaks, safety has been compromised as a result of broken or damaged hose, regulator or cooker.

In a statement, Hemachandra Gunathilake, Channel Safety Advisor of  Litro Gas Lanka pointed out that the correct safety protocols must be followed at all times when using LPG.

"If there is indeed an emergency, 1311 must be contacted to help understand the situation and mitigate," he added.

Meanwhile, Litro Gas Lanka, reiterated that the LPG brought into Sri Lanka meets internationally ratified compositions of propane and butane, certified at point of loading and unloading.

"The Company assures that the LPG that is loaded on to the ship at supplier point is unloaded at Kerawalapitiya and stored in LPG storage spheres after which point cylinders of varied sizes are filled in the factory. The entire process which is done under strictest safety standards, does not involve any tampering in Sri Lanka while LPG is stored and filled into cylinders with the same specifications they have been shipped with,"

Besides, Litro Gas Lanka stated that the Company possesses 8,000 MT LPG capacity which means that a new LPG stock is required every six to seven days to meet the market demand ; a new shipment of LPG arrives at the Kerawalapitiya filling plant every 3-4 days, ensuring that customers are given a seamless supply of LPG.

"Although the Company introduced the 18 Litre cylinder earlier this year, it was soon taken off the market by a Government directive and is no longer available in the market since June 2021," the statement added.
