• 1872

    LPG gas has dotted the Sri Lankan landscape since the late 1800’s. The introduction of gas illumination in 1872 was the first step in this strategic direction, whilst the household and industrial use of LPG has a history spanning 32 years.

    The first use of gas in Sri Lanka goes as far back as 1872. The Colombo Gas and Water Company Ltd was established in that year and provided town gas (generated by coal) to the Colombo city (up to Ratmalana) via pipeline.

  • 1992

    The Colombo Gas Company was established on 8th September 1992 and continued supplying Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) to Sri Lanka.

  • 1995

    In 1995 when the government owned Colombo Gas Company was privatized, Shell Gas Lanka Ltd (SGLL) was formed. The Company was set up as a joint venture where the multinational Shell acquired a 51% shareholding and the Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) retained the balance 49% stake.

  • 2010

    Litro Gas Lanka Limited (LGLL) was formed when Shell decided to sell its 51% stake in Sri Lanka in November 2010. With this sale the new brand “Litro Gas” was created. Currently, the Company is engaged in importing, storing, filling, marketing and selling LPG throughout the Island.

...

Sri Lanka depends on imported LPG to bridge the growing gap between demand and the limited local production by Ceylon Petroleum Corporation’s (CPC) Refinery in Sapugaskanda.

To meet this demand, the GOSL also took steps to purchase the Shell owned LPG Storage Terminal situated in Kerawalapitiya. The LPG Storage Terminal was re-named Litro Gas Terminal Lanka (Private) Limited (LGTLL).

This investment consists of an 8,000 mt import and storage terminal. Litro Gas also owns a modernized LPG bottling plant situated in Mabima, Sapugaskanda which is one of the largest in the region and a fleet of modernized LPG tanker trucks.
