The main reason for the recent gas related accidents has been identified as the change in the composition of gas, Prof. Shantha Walpolage, the Chairman of the Committee appointed by the President to probe gas-related accidents, said.

He told media today that they got this finding verified during their on-site inspections as well.  

“The cylinders, regulators, stoves and other equipment have remained unchanged. What was subjected to change was the gas composition,” he underlined.

 Thus, he reiterated that the main reason for the recent gas explosions could be attributed to the gas composition.  

A number of cases related to gas explosions were reported in the country for the last one month raising concerns amongst people.  

Accordingly, a Committee was appointed by the President on November 30 to look into the incidents of LPG cylinder fires and explosions. (Sheain Fernandopulle)
