The oil refinery at Sapugaskanda will be closed for between two and three weeks from tomorrow (20) until the receipt of the crude stocks already ordered, says CPC chairman Sumith Wijesinghe.

Several short-term agreements have been signed and tenders called for the supplies needed for the month of April, he told the media.

Agreement has also been reached for a 120-day supply contract as well, said Wijesinghe.
