Energy Minister Udaya Gammanpila said that operations at the Sapugaskanda oil refinery, which were temporarily suspended, will recommence tomorrow (07).

On November 15, it was announced that the refinery would be temporarily shut down for 50 days in order to save foreign exchange through the suspension of crude oil imports.

The Minister said that the import of crude oil would be resumed as soon as the dollar deficit is overcome by obtaining credit facilities.
