Litro Gas Lanka Limited (LGLL) was formed on the 15th of November 2010 with the Company’s ownership changing hands from the global multinational Royal Dutch Shell. The change heralded the birth of the brand Litro Gas.
Throughout the years the Company has invested in developing the Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) market in Sri Lanka. Along with its associate company Litro Gas Terminal Lanka (Pvt) Ltd, the Company has successfully developed the infrastructure in Sri Lanka to cater to the country’s needs.
The Company is the leader in marketing and selling LPG in Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka only produces approximately 10% of its internal demand, therefore the country depends on imported LPG to bridge the growing gap between demand and the limited production by Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) refinery.
With the ownership changes in November 2010, the LPG Storage terminal was re-named Litro Gas Terminal Lanka (Private) Limited. The terminal facility consists of an 8,000 mt import and storage terminal and a modern LPG road tanker fleet. The terminal facility observes the highest levels of safety and has won numerous safety awards from the Shell Group and at the National Safety Awards. In 2000, the Terminal was placed the Runner-up of the Industrial Safety Award; in 2003, it won the "All Island National Safety Award", the Terminal was recognized as the 1st Runner-up of the Industrial Safety Award in 2004 and 2006 and in 2008, it was recognized as the All Island Winner of the National Safety Award.
