India also to build refinery; Decision during RW’s Indian visit



The Government of India has submitted a proposal to build an oil refinery in Trincomalee, government sources said.

The Trincomalee Oil Tank Farm has also been requested for an Indian development project. The refinery is planned to be set up in addition to that.

President Ranil Wickremesinghe is scheduled to visit India after the Sinhala and Tamil New Year, and it is learned that this matter will also be discussed during the visit.

Meanwhile, the government decided last week to award fuel supply, distribution and sale to three international companies.
