(LANKAPUVATH | COLOMBO) – The Litro Gas Company says it will begin distribution of 50,000 domestic gas cylinders island-wide on a daily basis starting from today (May 31) until Friday (June 03).
Accordingly, the company announced that the distribution of 12.5 kg, 5 kg and 2.3 kg gas cylinders will begin from this afternoon.
The distribution of the domestic gas to the market will take place today after 08 days.
The domestic gas distribution had been suspended since last Tuesday (May 24) due to the delay in the arrival of the gas tanker.
However, a ship carrying 3,950 metric tons of gas arrived in the island yesterday (30) and the unloading began in the last evening, the Litro Gas Company said.
As instructed by the parliamentary Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE), 60% of the gas cylinders will be distributed in the Colombo and Gampaha districts.
