Colombo (LNW): GPS tracking systems will be installed to fuel tankers owned by the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CEYPETCO) and all private tankers will follow in the same manner, Power and Energy Minister Kanchana Wijesekara said.
These GPS tracking systems will be installed by April 15, 2023, and the Minister said all fuel stations will be required to maintain a minimum 50 per cent of stock tank capacity.
Following a progress review meeting with the CEYPETCO and the Ceylon Petroleum Stock Terminal Limited (CPSTL) management and officers this (06) morning, the Minister emphasised that the fuel cargo plan for the next eight weeks, refinery operations and fuel distribution during the festive season have been reviewed.
Decisions were taken to suspend forty fuel stations that have failed to adhere to the QR quotas, he added.
