The samples of gas that were collected under the supervision of the Committee appointed to monitor the two gas ships imported to the country by the two Gas Companies, along with Sri Lanka Standard Institute, Industrial Technology Institute and the Consumer Affairs Authority were forwarded to the Laboratory of the Sri Lanka Petroleum Corporation ( 2021.12.03 ).
According to the testing reports released by the Petroleum Corporation, and the recommendations of the relevant Technical Committee, it has been decided to issue domestic gas to the market under the following conditions with effect from 2021.12.05.
1. Not to issue the previously imported gas stocks.
2. To contain Mercaptan to the new stocks before they are issued to the market thereby enabling the consumers to identify any leaks if any by its odorant.
3. To check one cylinder per every 100 cylinders during production, serialize and produce them to the Consumer Affairs Authority.
Subsequent to making this Committee aware of the fulfilment of these requirements to ensure the quality and, under the supervision of the same Committee, it has been decided to issue gas to the market, and thereafter, the Gas Companies should allow the said Committee to monitor the production process of gas at any given moment.
