LITRO to recommence distribution tomorrow


The distribution of Liquefied Petroleum (LP) gas cylinders will recommence tomorrow (31), Chairman of Litro Gas Lanka, Vijitha Herath said.

Accordingly, a total of 50,000 gas cylinders of 12.5kg, 5kg, and 2.3kg will be released to the market tomorrow.

The distribution of LP Gas cylinders was halted from last week (24), owing to the lack of stocks of LP Gas.

However, a shipment carrying 3,500 metric tonnes of Liquefied Petroleum (LP) was unloaded earlier today, followed by a nearly 10-hour long quality check.

A payment of USD 6.5 million was made last week (23), for two ships carrying a total of 7,500 metric tons of LP Gas.
