Government mulling over generating power through natural gas

Nov 6, 2010 5:45:44 AM - itnnews.lk

Minister Susil Premajayantha says that the Government is considering generating electricity using natural gas with the aim of reducing electricity bills.

The Minister said oil exploration is expected to take place in May next year. Sri Lanka has high expectations in finding natural gas in the area which could be used as a substitute for oil. He further said that the usage of natural gas instead of oil would also contribute towards environmental conservation.
