Plans are afoot to use Satellite Technology to monitor the local oil transporting process.
The Ceylon Petroleum Corporation’s oil distributing centres are operating at Kolonnawa and Muthrurajawala. It is planned to monitor with the help of Satellite Technology from the time of filling oil to bowsers and the handing over of the stocks to filling stations. The aim of this exercise is to preventing the pilfering of oil and well as contaminating oil. A notable feature would be the computerization of all information related to trucks transporting oil.
