    Sri Lanka's Hambantota Harbour is now carrying out tests of its newly-built oil tank facility which will allow it to start offering bunkering services, the official governmental news portal Sri Lanka News reported yesterday.
    The facility comprises eight oil storage tanks and three aviation fuel tanks.

    At the initial pre-commissioning phase, 7,000 cu m (24,700 cu ft) of marine gas oil would be pumped into the oil tanks.
    The oil tank farm's pumps, lines and tanks, will be checked in the next weeks to ensure the facility smooth operation.

    Hambantota Port, also known as Magam Ruhunupura Mahinda Rajapakse International Harbour, serves as a hub for transshipment of automobiles.
