Chairman of the state-run LITRO Gas Company Muditha Peiris said certain reports on a LP gas shortage being on the rise are false and that the Company is releasing gas stocks to the market as usual.
“We as the LITRO Gas Company are issuing stocks to the market as usual. There are enough stocks available at LITRO. Therefore, we haven’t even resorted to the assumption of the occurrence of a gas shortage. We say with responsibility that that there are enough gas stocks, quantitatively. There is no gas shortage, according to our knowledge,” Peiris said.
The LITRO Chief went on: “We are not sure if someone has deliberately created a shortage somewhere. That being said, we are not sure if the idea of a gas shortage is being planted at certain outlets if they posses no stocks. We uninterruptedly issue gas. Therefore, we are not sure if this was a staged shortage. Otherwise, we cannot accept that there is a gas shortage.”
