New Sapugaskanda Oil Pipeline is a proposed crude oil pipeline in Sri Lanka.
The pipeline is expected to run from the port of Sapusgaskanda to the Sapusgaskanda oil refinery.
In 2018 Ceylon Petroleum announced a plan to increase capacity to 100,000 bpd in partnership with IndianOil but has not signed an agreement to do so. In July 2019 it was reported that CPC was evaluating bids for the expansion of the refinery. In 2021, Ceylon Petroleum issued an invitation for proposals for consultancy services to carry out a feasibility study for construction of a new 100,000 bpd capacity oil refinery at Sapugaskanda, Sri Lanka.In addition, CPC is also reportedly planning to build a new oil pipeline to complement the existing port-to-refinery pipeline.
