CPC commences lubrication production

The Ceylon Petroleum Corporation says that they have commenced production of lubricant oil for the first time.

The annual demand for lubricant oil exceeds 65,000 kilo litres and much money was spent on importing lubricant oil.

Although initial measures to produce lubricant oil were taken some time back, production had stalled due to several reasons.

The CPC management had informed minister of power - Mahinda Amaraweera that production had commenced at a high tech  facility at the CPC premises.

The facility is said to be having an annual production capacity of 33 million kilo litres of lubricant oil.
